Christine A. Piezzo, 52, of Westerly, passed away unexpectedly in her home on October 15, 2019.

Christine was born in Westerly to Joseph and Carol Piezzo. She attended Westerly High School then Salve Regina University where she received a Bachelor of Arts in Education and a Bachelor's of Science in French literature. Christine then went on to study and earn a diploma from L'Université Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne/Cannes-Université. She completed her education by earning a Master of Arts Degree in education from University of New Haven.

Christine is survived by her parents, Joseph and Carol Piezzo; her children, Eliza and Latham Woodman; and her sisters, Suzanne Tamburro (James Tamburro) and Jo-Ann Holmes (Patrick Holmes); as well as a niece and nephews.

She lived for her children, Eliza and Latham. She always did everything she could to do right by them, in anyway she could. From showing up to every sporting event or parent teacher conference, to entertaining their friends for birthdays and before school dances, she wanted to be as involved as she possibly could in everything they did. Her love for them was adamant and obvious to everyone that knew her. Christine was loved by many, and will be missed by all.

Christine dedicated her life to education and was extremely passionate about helping her students. She taught French at Montville High School in Connecticut for more than 20 years, then more recently at Waterford High School for two years. Throughout her two decades in the education system, she touched countless lives with her compassion, ability to understand, and vigor to do right by others. From teaching, she brought an invaluable angle to being a member of the Westerly School Committee. Her passion for others and education shown through everything she did. She truly believed that every student could be reached and helped.

Anyone that knew her, knew that her other passion lay in her deep love of cooking and all things food. Unlike most people, she could read a cookbook from start to finish, as if it were a novel, leaving notes in the margins as she went. Everything she made was good, and that is not an exaggeration. Her ability to make all that entered her home feel welcomed always resulted in everyone leaving full and happy.

Visiting hours will be held on Monday from 4-7 pm at Gaffney-Dolan Funeral Home, 59 Spruce St., Westerly RI. There will be a private burial for immediate family the following day.

In lieu of flowers donations can be made to Westerly Education Endowment Fund at

I am truly saddened to hear this news & I wish my condolences to her family and friends. She was a very smart, beautiful, and strong person who will be missed by many. I was lucky enough to have her as a teacher in high school. I enjoyed getting to know her personally throughout high school. She always met me with a smile and wise advice when I needed it. It was obvious how strong and intelligent Ms. Piezzo was.
Sending prayers and peace to all those grieving this terrible loss.
