Marie Acciardo, 61, of Cranston passed unexpectedly on Monday, April 18, 2022, at Rhode Island Hospital. She was the daughter of the late Marie E (Tutalo) Acciardo and Raymond Acciardo, Sr. of Johnston. She also leaves a brother Raymond Acciardo, Jr. of Woonsocket, her best friend and life partner Brenda Shanley of Cranston, and stepson Tom Ritter of California.
Marie was most recently a driver for Oak Street Health in Warwick and had a long prior career in pest control. Marie was the life of any party. You would know she was there when you heard her hearty laugh and genial welcome.
She was easy-going, caring, accepting of all, and would make anyone feel welcome. Marie lived and loved with a full heart. We will forever miss her entering a room with a smile and quick-witted comment and laugh. The many dear friends and family that she leaves behind knew what a true friend was in Marie.
For once she was your friend, she was your friend for life. Marie will be forever loved, cherished, and missed.
Relatives and friends will be received in the "WOODLAWN" Funeral Home, 600 Pontiac Ave., Cranston, Saturday, from 11:00 am until 1:30 pm.
