Patricia Ann (Kennedy) Loporchio was surrounded by her family when she passed away peacefully on June 6, 2021. She was 86. Pat leaves behind her loving husband, Vincent, with whom she shared a wonderful life for 63 years. They celebrated their anniversary in April.
They were the proud parents of Vincent Loporchio of Andover MA, and Patricia Walker of Trumbull, CT. Pat also leaves behind her loving daughter-in-law, Robin Loporchio. Pat will be greatly missed by her grandchildren, whom she called her special treasures: Maxwell Walker, Nathan Walker, Amelia Walker, Timothy Loporchio and Keira Loporchio. She also will be missed by her goddaughter Paula DiCandito, her honorary granddaughter Elisa Kertzner, and Maxwell’s fiancée Olivia Testi. Pat’s many cousins, nieces, nephews and friends are also saddened by her passing.
Pat was born in Providence and was the daughter of the late Timothy P. Kennedy and Margaret Kennedy. Her brother, Timothy E. Kennedy, passed away in 2019. Pat graduated from St. Xavier’s Academy in Providence in 1952. Her priority was raising her children; however, she also worked for many years as a highly regarded executive assistant in Rhode Island and Connecticut.
Pat’s faith was an important part of her life and she was a communicant of St. Pius X Church. Her other joy was her family. Her grandchildren were by her side in the final days and recalled wonderful stories of the many special memories of their grandmother over the years. Pat will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved her. She was always thinking of others and would never consider putting herself before anyone else. Pat made every room brighter with her presence.
A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Friday, June 11, at 10 a.m., St. Pius X Church, 45 Elm St., Westerly. Burial will be private. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to St. Pius Church or St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital. The family would also like to express their sincere gratitude for the wonderful care provided by Westerly Hospital’s hospice professionals.
