Blanche Ethel Stergios, 96, of Jamestown, RI, passed away after a brief illness, on Wednesday, March 27, 2019.

Blanche dedicated her life to assisting her late husband and raising her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. Her greatest passion was her family and she was fiercely proud of her daughters.

Blanche Stergios was born on November 15, 1922 in New Orleans, Louisiana. She was the daughter of the late
Alfred Fiorello Sr and Leontine Columbel Fiorello. Her childhood years were enjoyed in Baton Rouge and Arabi, Louisiana. She regularly told entertaining stories about her childhood adventures along the Mississippi River and in the orange groves of Louisiana. Her lifelong memories always remained intact.

She married Louis Robert Stergios on January 11, 1946, a World War II purple heart recipient. They relocated to Providence, RI and raised their family in Warwick, RI.

Blanche loved the company of her extended family. Over the last 28 years, she primarily resided in Jamestown, RI, thoroughly enjoying the waterside community. She was an avid reader. She possessed expert knitting and crocheting skills, making countless afghans and sweaters for the family and hats and scarves for the homeless.

She was preceeded in death by her parents, husband and four siblings, Alfred Fiorello Jr (New Orleans, LA),
Lucien Fiorello Sr (New Orleans, LA), Constance Daboval (Chalmette, LA), and Ruby Arieux (Arabi, LA).

Blanche was the sister-in-law of the late:
James Stergis,
Augustus and Margaret Stergis,
Irene and Francis Hamilton,
Constance and William Grimshaw,
Teresa Travers,
She is survived by her brother and sisters in law:
George and Dorothea Stergis,
Antoinette Stergis,
and an extensive number of nieces and nephews.

She is survived by her loving three daughters and their husbands:
Elaine S Barone and Stephen A Evangelista (Jamestown, RI),
Debra A Stergios Lynch and Kevin R Lynch (Charlottesville, VA),
Roberta Stergios Sullivan and Michael Sullivan (Warwick, RI).

Blanche was especially happy when in the company of her grandchildren:
David R Barone and wife Amanda,
Stephen J Evangelista,
Nicole E Evangelista
Ann S Lynch,
Sean S Lynch and wife Kirsti,
Joslyn Tchaicha and husband Jeremy,
Patrick Hannon and wife Lauren,
Derek Hannon and fiancee Tricia Martin.

Blanche was absolutely delighted to live and experience the joy of her nine great grandchildren:
David Gilman Barone,
Samuel Louis Barone,
Kellan Tchaicha,
Henry Tchaicha,
Maeve Hannon,
Rogan Hannon,
Rhett Patrick Lynch,
Emmett James Lynch,
Juliette Martin.
