Lois Terranova Obituary
Lois Terranova, 81, formerly of 12 Benefit St., Westerly, died peacefully on Monday, Feb. 13, 2012, at The Westerly Hospital.
Born in Westerly, March 6, 1930, she was the daughter of the late Joseph Terranova and Diana (Stanton) Terranova.
She will sadly missed by her two sisters, Diana Mae Gilmore, of Hobe Sound, Fla., and Jane Lawson, of Westerly; her brother and sister-in-law, Stanton and Diane Terranova; nine nieces and nephews; 13 great-nieces and nephews and three great-great-nephews.
After graduating from Westerly High School, Class of 1948, she went on to earn a medical secretary degree from Becker College in 1950. She returned to Westerly and worked for Dr. Joseph Ruisi for many years. Many friends remembered her fondly for those years of service with "Dr. Joe." She then worked for Stanton Realty before retiring.
Lois had a love for cooking, needlework and traveling. Her close friendships with her high school classmates extended to present day when they met once a month for lunch. The Club, as we know it, will miss her greatly.
A service will be held on Saturday at 11 a.m. at the Central Baptist Church. Calling hours are Friday from 4 to 6 p.m. at the Buckler-Johnston Funeral Home, 121 Main St., Westerly.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Central Baptist Church, 16 Elm St., Westerly, RI 02891.
