Anita Dupont

January 28, 1946 — October 30, 2020


Anita R. DuPont (nee LaVallee), 74, passed away in her home in Greenville, Rhode Island on Friday, October 30, 2020.

A devout Catholic, Anita was born in Providence to the late Gabrielle (Belair) and Frederick R. LaVallee. She graduated from Saint Charles High School in Providence. Anita served food and cheer for 27 years at the Newport Creamery Greenville. Until her retirement in 2012, loyal customers insisted on sitting in her section no matter which waitress was up next, and some would drive to the next restaurant if they didn’t see Anita’s car in the parking lot. She was an avid Scrabble player and played Words with Friends several times a day. She enjoyed shopping for bargains and spending time with her family and friends.

She leaves behind her husband Peter DuPont, her children Kerry, Melanie, and Adam DuPont, her granddaughter Lily Holt, her twin sister Annette Fay, her brother Pete LaVallee and his wife Donna, her nieces and nephews Donna Paiva-Galloway, Sean, Meaghan, Daniel, and Peter Fay, Drew and Cam LaVallee, and dozens of cousins in the U.S. and Canada. Anita was predeceased by her brother Frederick LaVallee and his wife Natalie, and her close friend Corinne Verdone.
