In addition to both of her husbands, she was pre-deceased by her step-daughter Carol Bush (wife of George Bush), her grandson Brian Richard and her son-in-law Robert MacGillivray. She was intelligent, strong and assertive to the end. She loved her family fiercely. She is irreplaceable and we will miss her always. The family wishes to thank the many people who cared for our mother with compassion and dedication in her final years including nurses, CNAs, and neighbors, and especially Dulce Correia, Lucy Girard and Tracy and Liam Smith. Their kindness can never be repaid. A service of remembrance will be held at a later date. Gifts in her name may be sent to Oak Lawn Community Baptist Church, 229 Wilbur Avenue, Cranston, RI 02921.
