Born on April 14, 1925 in the Natick section of Warwick, she was the daughter of the late Lorenzo and Luigia (Mancini) Parente.

She also leaves behind numerous nieces, nephews, extended family, and friends.
As a life-long parishioner of Sacred Heart Church in West Warwick, Eva’s faith in God and her devotion to Jesus’ presence in the Eucharist was unwavering, attending Mass daily.
Eva grew up with an incredible work ethic having worked at Sears & Roebuck in the Hardware Department, Estelle’s Gift Shop in Arctic, and Filene’s Department Store finally retiring in 1995, all while relishing in the time spent providing love to her family. Having been part of an enormous family, Eva nurtured and cared for all her younger brothers. She was quick-witted, the best baker and cook, loving, and honest. In her spare time, she loved being outdoors, swimming, walking, cooking, traveling, and spending time with her grandchildren, showering them with love and support.
The family would like to thank the staff of Alpine Nursing Home and Beacon Hospice Care for their care, comfort, and compassion that was provided for Eva and her family during this most difficult time.
