North Providence

Sparadeo, Palma "Polly" (Iannuccilli), 94, passed away peacefully with her family in the Garden Room of Gifford Medical Center in Randolph, Vermont on Tuesday, August 3, 2021. Born in North Providence, Rhode Island, on November 17, 1926, Polly was a daughter of the late Leonardo and Christina (Russo) Iannuccilli. She lived in a charming home built by her husband, the late Robert D. Sparadeo, on Peach Hill Avenue most of her life. Polly worked as a bookkeeper as well as in the jewelry and textile industries, and in the service department of A.T. Cross for more than 25 years. She is survived by her son Robert J. Sparadeo of Randolph, Vermont and grandchildren Christopher D. Sparadeo, also of Randolph, Jennifer A. (Sparadeo) Albert of Bellingham, Massachusetts and great-grandchildren Daniel and Noah whom she loved very much. She was predeceased by her brothers, Antonio, Carmino, Joseph, Alexander "Sonny" Iannuccilli and sisters Julia Pitochelli, Florence Camuso, Lucy Favreau and Evelyn Cardin. Known for her fun-loving and engaging personality, Polly could quickly light up a room with smiles. She taught us all how to live, give, and forgive.
