We will always remember Mom’s smile, the love she had for her family, and don’t forget those chocolate chip cookies! She is survived by her three children: Denise Pappa and her husband Buddy of W. Warwick, and Celeste Penacho and her husband Jerry of Cape Coral, FL, and Joseph Bachand of Providence; her granddaughter Emily Pappa and her sister Jeannette Lagasse of Pawtucket.
