Ethel G. Lough

June 8, 1931 — September 2, 2022

Ethel G. Lough, 91, of North Providence, passed away peacefully on September 2, 2022 with her family by her side. She was the wife of the late Ira J. Lough. Born in Providence, she was the daughter of the late Anthony and Grace (Barricelli) Petrone.

Ethel earned her nursing degree from Our Lady of Fatima Hospital and worked at the former Lying-In Hospital in Providence and went on to spend her remaining career helping others in local healthcare facilities.

Lough and his wife Debra, Michael Lough and his fiancée Cheryl; twelve grandchildren and eleven great-grandchildren. She was the sister of the late Flavia Phillips.
