October 27, 1921 – October 30, 2018
Evelyn M. (Miele) Pilski-Przystrzelski, 97, passed away peacefully at home on October 30, 2018.
She was the daughter of the late Vincenzo and Anna (Filengeri) Miele; wife of the late Walter Pilski; beloved mother of Joyce L. Przystrzelski, who was her caregiver for the last 5 years, and the late Jacqueline A. Przystrzelski; sister of the late Armando, William, Edward and Mary Miele, and Catherine Morrocco. She also leaves 5 nephews.
Evelyn fought her illness bravely and without complaint for 5 years with the help of the visiting nurses of Hope Health and Hope Hospice. Her wish was to never enter a nursing home but to remain in her own home and because of her doctor Lauren Hedde who made house calls and was available to speak with daily her wish came true. She died peacefully in her sleep in her own home. We welcomed each new day as a blessing from God.
Evelyn was a graceful and beautiful woman who was cherished by her husband and daughters. At a young age she was a signer and a dancer and once she was married she stayed home to care for her family.
Visitation and funeral services will be held Saturday, 9:30-10:30 a.m. in the PONTARELLI-MARINO Home, 971 Branch Avenue, Providence, followed by a Mass of Christian Burial at 11 a.m. in Our Lady of Grace Church, George Waterman Road, Johnston.
