Evelyn M. (Forte) Forsyth, 95, of Cranston, passed away peacefully on Monday, June 15, 2020 at Brentwood Nursing Home. Born in Providence, she lived in Cranston for 66 years.
She was the daughter of the late Daniel and Mary (DeMuccio) Forte. Evelyn was employed for 25 years by the Cranston School Department as a paraprofessional. She touched the lives of many young students throughout her career. She was also a faithful communicant of St. Mark’s Church in Garden City.
Her greatest joy in life was being an important part of her six grandsons lives, supporting them at their school and athletic endeavors. They were her pride and joy.
She was the beloved wife of the late John I. Forsyth and the loving and devoted mother of Kathryn (David) Smith of Warwick, and John (Brenda) Forsyth of Cranston. She was also the proud and loving Nana to Ryan, Erik, Dean and Kyle Smith, Jeffrey & Andrew Forsyth and great-grandmother to seven. She was predeceased by a brother John Forte, and is survived by a sister, Gloria Farina.
Her family would like to thank the loving & caring staff that greatly touched her life these past 3 ½ years at Brentwood. Their professionalism & dedication to her well being provided us with a sense of comfort knowing she was well cared for and loved.
