She was the wife of the late Stephen C. Curtis Sr. Born in Fall River, Mass., a daughter of the late Antonio “Larry” and Marie (Cote) Luciano, she lived in Barrington for 50 years.

Curtis Jr. and his wife Jennie Israel of Lexington, Mass.; a sister, Geraldine Carreiro of Warren; five brothers, Lawrence Luciano of Indiana, Gerald Luciano of Bristol, Arthur Luciano of Riverside, Michael Luciano of Ocala, Fla. and David Luciano of Attleboro, Mass.; two grandchildren, Liam and Stella Curtis and a loving partner, Paul T.
