PROVIDENCE- Lucille E. Coupe, 81, of Providence, and former 26 year resident of Westmont, Illinois, passed away peacefully in her sleep on Sunday, May 3, 2020 at Summit Commons Rehabilitation and Health Care Center in Providence. She was the loving and dear wife of the late Richard P. Coupe.
Born on June 21, 1938, in Providence, Lucille was the eldest of three children born to the late Luigi and Pauline (Buccini) DiManni.
Lucille worked in retail for much of her life, often in the textile industry.
A woman of deep faith and devotion, Lucille was a devout follower of Christ. She was a practicing Baptist Fundamentalist, which influenced her profoundly to live a prayerful life. She enjoyed reading the bible and her dedication to her religious beliefs spread to other individuals, as she was able to evangelize and inspire people in her life to follow Christ, including her own Godson, Russ.
In her spare time, Lucille loved to cook food for her family and friends. She had a liking for butterfly themed artwork, which she collected whenever possible. Above all, she was most happy and joyful when she was in the presence of, and making memories with, her treasured family, who were blessings in her life.
Lucille is survived by her two cherished sons, Gregory Coupe of Providence and Ken Coupe and his wife Shelly of Naperville, Illinois; her grandsons, Dylan and Joshua Coupe of Illinois; her younger brothers, Louis DiManni of Providence and Anthony DiManni of Pawtucket; her Godson, Russ Anthony; and also many extended family members and friends.
She was predeceased by her husband and beloved parents.
Due to the COVID-19 Virus and the directive of State of Rhode Island officials, Lucille’s funeral services and burial at North Burial Ground will be privately.
In lieu of flowers, one may make a donation in Lucille’s name to Marquette Manor Baptist Church, 333 75th St, Downers Grove, IL 60516.
