Maria S. "Mary" (Scuncio) Coppola Obituary
COPPOLA, Maria "MARY" S. (Scuncio)
96, of North Providence, passed away peacefully on July 4, 2018. She was married to the late Raffaele ("Ralph") Coppola for 52 years. Together, these life-long Rhode Islanders and proud Italian-Americans raised three children and traveled the world. Mary was born in Providence, the daughter of the late Joseph C. and Vincenza (Lanni) Scuncio. The oldest of six, she often fondly recalled summers spent with her family on Shawomet Beach. While her husband served in the Army in France during World War II, Mary supported the war effort at home by working on the rationing board. She attended Johnson & Wales business school and, in the early days of her marriage, she was a bookkeeper at the automobile dealership founded by her father, Scuncio Chevrolet. Later, she was in a bowling league, and she was an avid golfing and card-playing member of Kirkbrae Country Club. Cooking was Mary's passion and how she most fully expressed her love for family and friends. Mourning her loss are: her children and their spouses – Doreen A. Gudelanis of Lawrenceville, GA, Cynthia M. Coppola-Ruzzo and Bernard M. Ruzzo of Grapevine, TX, and Ralph R. and Andrea M. Coppola of Warwick; her grandchildren – Kristina A. Mack of Dallas, TX, William F. (Michelle) Mack of Grapevine, TX, Lisa M. (Patrick) Wright of Lawrenceville, GA, Alexis L. Coppola of Washington, DC, and Jacquelyn F. Nectow of Warwick; six great-children; her sister Jane A. Rudis of Smithfield; and her brother Edward L. (Ann) Scuncio of North Providence. In addition to her husband, parents, son-in-law Robert W. Gudelanis, other in-laws and many friends, she was predeceased by her brothers John G. (Lillian) Scuncio and Joseph C. (Audrey) Scuncio, as well as her sister Dorothy E. (Raymond) Moretti. Her VISITING HOURS will be held on Saturday, July 14, 2018 from 8:30-10:15 a.m. at the "WOODLAWN" Funeral Home, 600 Pontiac Ave., Cranston with a Mass of Christian at 11 a.m. in St. Mary's Church, Cranston. Burial will follow in St. Ann's Cemetery, Cranston. Please share memories at WoodlawnGattone.com
