Catherine (Cathy) Vasconcelos, age 52, died of natural causes in her Pawtucket home on June 29, 2019. Cathy will be dearly missed by many, including her family at Mathewson Street United Methodist Church, the 134 Collaborative, the PICA Friday Night Community Meal, St. Patrick’s Church, Characters Café, Anchor Recovery, and St. Stephens Community Meal. She was married to Manny “Braz” Vasconcelos (deceased) and is the mother to Manny Vasconcelos. Cathy celebrated all that life had to offer. She especially loved holidays and birthdays. She decorated her apartment for Halloween and the Fourth of July, and always visited Santa at Christmastime. She will be remembered as a social force. She was a woman who commanded the room with her presence, and whose eyes sparkled when she spoke to you. Cathy believed in love and friendship above all, and she embraced every day with that focus—visiting friends, sending them notes and cards, and calling them at every opportunity. She prayed for her friends, especially when they suffered, and brought comfort to others in their times of need. The love, the joy, and the friendship that she shared with the world will always be remembered.
A Committal Service will be held Wednesday August 21, 2019 at 1:00 pm in St. Joseph's Cemetery, 959 Nooseneck Hill Road, West Greenwich.
