Ann Marie (Quartino) Torregrossa, 73, of Smithfield passed away on Tuesday, August 2, at the HopeHealth Hulitar Hospice Center in Providence after a 25-year battle with breast cancer. She was the wife of Anthony Torregrossa for 50 years. Born in Providence, Ann Marie was the daughter of the late Thomas and Lee (Morelli) Quartino.

Ann Marie was a beloved daughter, sister, aunt, wife, mother, and grandmother. She now joins her parents Thomas and Lee and brothers Thomas Quartino and Joseph Quartino. She leaves behind her husband Anthony, her son Michael Torregrossa, her daughter Lisa Torregrossa and her husband Robert Eilers, her grandson Jack Eilers, her sister Barbara Quartino Paolino, as well as sisters in law Marie Quartino and Angela Quartino, nieces Cynthia Quartino, Cheryl (McGillivray) Tsakos, Heather (Quartino) Howard, and Brianna Paolino, and nephew Adam Paolino. All of whom will miss her dearly.

Ann Marie was a loving, energetic, strong, and devout woman. She had a passion for life and enjoyed spending time with her family and friends. She liked to cook, do puzzles, go shopping, play games, read, sit in her yard, tend her garden, walk around the neighborhood, and watch movies and television. Ann Marie also enjoyed going on trips, whether to the casino or further away. One of her special recent memories was a vacation in Hawaii.
