Obituary for Nancy M. Pacific


Our beloved sister, aunt, and friend, Nancy M. Pacific, 76, of East Providence passed away peacefully and surrounded by loving family on November 8, 2023 following a brief illness. Born on October 29, 1947, she was a cherished daughter of the late Albert and Albertine (Pearson) Gustafson.

Nancy leaves behind her brother, James Pacific of East Providence, and her sisters, Charlene DelSanto of Cranston, Debbie Miller of Florida, and Cathy Barrett of Warwick, and many nieces and nephews by whom she will be sorely missed. Nancy was predeceased by her brothers, Doug Goodinson, Ronald Goodinson, Francis (Skippy) Pacific, Noel Pacific, and a sister, Edith Ann Goodinson.

Nancy was a no-nonsense woman with a huge heart who led a full and passionate life. She did things her way and with a touch of sass! She was raised in Providence in large family with plenty of love and plenty of siblings from whom she drew much love and support. In her younger days she was a Bartender for local bars including Lorrain's on West Exchange Street in Providence.

She loved her family and enjoyed cooking great Italian food for all to gather and enjoy. She was mean card player and could be a bit competitive, too. She also like to spend time at the casino with her beloved sister. A kind and generous soul, she donated regularly to animal shelters.

Services for Nancy to which family and friends are invited to attend will be held Wednesday, November 15, 2023 from 4-6 in the Berarducci Home, 26 Grove Street, Providence RI 02909.
