She was the devoted wife of the late Charles E. Lapre to whom she was married for 74 years.
Born in Providence, she was a daughter of the late Ralph and Bertha (Fanning) Kelly.
Mrs. Lapre was an example of faith, love of family, dignity and strength for her daughters and all who were blessed enough to know her.

She took great pride in her Irish heritage and was a patriotic American as the wife of a WWII Veteran.
She leaves six daughters, Marianne Tomasetti and her husband Richard of Johnston, Pauline Lapre of Lincoln, Donna Waldron of East Providence, Charlene Farley and her husband Brian of Smithfield, Regina Williams and her husband Bruce of Needham, MA and Justine Remsbecker and her husband Dr. Stephen Remsbecker of Rehoboth, one sister, Evelyn Levesque and her husband Roger of Greenville, RI, twelve grandchildren, ten great grandchildren and many nieces and nephews.
