Obituary

Lorraine A. Romano, 78, of Cranston, RI, passed away on Saturday December 14, 2019 at Sunny View Nursing Home in Warwick, surrounded by her loving family. She was the beloved wife of the late Pio A. Romano Jr.

She was born in Providence, the daughter of the late John and Yolanda (Carnevale) Bonitati. She leaves her five children; Pio A. Romano III (China) of Winter Garden, FL, Rayna R. Romano of East Providence, John M. Romano (Stephanie) of Windermere, FL, Robert S. Romano (Marie) of Warwick and David C. Romano (Joyce) of Warwick; A brother John Bonitati Jr. of Smithfield and her Niece, Nicole Bonitati of Smithfield, She leaves her grandchildren; Pio A. Romano IV, Gianna C. Romano, Daniel Kirby, Stephanie A. Boscia, David J. Romano, Pio Angelo Romano, Alexandra L. Romano, Blake A. Romano, Jerilyn A. DiFilippo, Robert S. Romano Jr., Michael G. Romano, Christian A. Romano and Parisa A. Romano and her Great-Grandchildren; Thomas, Eva, Rayna, Raymond, Ramon, Rayanna and Nadia.

After raising her five children, Lorraine decided to attend the prestigious Rittner School of floral design in Boston, MA, upon graduating she began her career as a professional florist and business owner by opening the Gazebo Flower Shop in the lobby of the Biltmore Hotel in Providence. She later went on to purchase Ray Florist, a long-standing community flower shop in the Silver Lake section of Providence. She was a wonderful artistic floral designer who loved her work and really cared for her clients. She successfully operated Ray Florist until her retirement in 2007. In 2009 she relocated to Windermere, Florida to be near two of her sons and then returning to Rhode Island in 2018.

Lorraine had many hobbies over the years, she was always a voracious reader and loved books on spirituality and religion. She made amazing creations with her needlepoint skills and was a fabulous cook. She was well known for hosting many parties and gatherings at her home, which was built by her father, and in her meticulously landscaped backyard overlooking the city. While her children were growing up her home was the gathering place for most of the neighborhood kids, which she greatly enjoyed.

Relatives and friends are invited to attend a Mass of Christian Burial on Wednesday December 18 at 11am. in St. Bartholomew’s Church, 297 Laurel Hill Avenue Providence. Burial will be private.

Her arrangements are in the caring guidance of Woodlawn Funeral Home, Cranston, RI and Winter Oak Funeral Home, Winter Garden, FL

It with a heavy heart that we say good-bye to our sister-in-law Lorraine. She has left us with many fond memories. She trusted us to bring her young children way over the bridge to the East Bay, to take them on adventures. She trusted me to work with her when she had her shop "The Gazebo", in the Biltmore. We were always welcomed to her & Pio's home for many family gatherings, in their beautifully landscaped yard. We will forever be thankful for her for sharing her home, her family and her faith with us throughout the years. Will always love you & miss you always Lorraine....Ray & Nancy

Owner of Ray Florist, Providence, Rhode Island. Lorraine never missed a beat. I can remember staying up to the wee hours just working on Weddings, Funerals, and Holiday Arrangements. She was a beautiful lady who loved her family. She loved to cook and have parties at her home. Her yard always was a beautiful array of shrubbery and flowers. Picture perfect. Lorraine always conducted herself in the most respectful manner and was a true lady. You will be missed.
