OBITUARY

Lucia L'Europa

January 2, 1933April 27, 2021

Lucia (Porreca) L'Europa, 88, passed away April 27, 2021, at home surrounded by her loving family. Born in Cervinara, Italy she was the daughter of the late Onofrio and Pasqualina (Silvestri) Porreca. She was the beloved wife of Gerardo L’Europa and devoted mother of David and Don L’Europa and Deborah Pitocco with whom she resided. She was the sister of Luigi and Bruno Porreca and the late Carmino, Agostino and Fiore Porreca, Rita Iannuccillo, Concetta Zugg, Maria Zugg, Flora DeLuca, and Italia Fiano.

Grandmother of Gina and Anthony Pitocco, Rayna, David, Gerry, Michael, Andrew, Domenic, Landon and the late Tiffany L’Europa. Great grandmother of Michael Bogda, Italia Pitocco, Gabriella and Gianella L’Europa.

Lucia loved her family fiercely. She was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother. She welcomed all with open arms and never resisted the opportunity to offer up some of her extraordinary cooking. Whether it was her Sunday gravy, a frittata, or pasta fagioli, she always made sure people never left her home hungry. “Mangia, Mangia” she would always say. One of her favorite things to do was tend to her garden, where an abundance of vegetables would grow. She would spend hours sitting on what became her own personal bench, underneath the sun, overlooking her garden with rosary beads in one hand, Chablis in the other, saying her daily prayers. A matriarch of her family, she was loved by so many, and will truly be missed by all.

Relatives and friends are invited to attend a Mass of Christian Burial on Friday, April 30 at 11:00 A.M. in Holy Ghost Church, 1 Knight Street, Providence. Burial will follow in Saint Ann Cemetery, Cranston. Visitation for family will be private.
