Born in Providence on May 7, 1936 where her father John Capaldi founded Capaldi Brothers Construction Company, Claire spent her early years surrounded by a large and loving Italian family. A resident of North Providence until 1996, Claire lived in Smithfield for the past 24 years.
Long known for her great strength, generosity and steadfast faith, Claire enjoyed being with her family, cooking thousands of delicious meals, working in her garden and traveling. She was a weekly communicant at St Lawrence Church in North Providence until Parkinson’s disease restricted her travel.
Special heartfelt thanks from Claire’s entire family to the devoted caregivers who took such wonderful care of our mother.
