Beverly Rose (Venditti) Ferreira


Beverly Rose (Venditti) Ferreira, 89, of Rehoboth passed away peacefully on Thursday, June 30, 2022, at Miriam Hospital. Born in Providence, she was the daughter of the late Francesco and Mary Immaculatta (Tauro) Venditti and the sister of the late Eleanor A. DiPippo, the late Dominic Anthony Venditti, and the late Dorothea Morra.

The former wife of the late John L. Ferreira, Sr. to whom she was married for 40 years and had six children whom she loved: John L. Ferreira, Jr. and his wife Barbara of Londonderry, NH, the late Catherine J. Ferreira of Rehoboth, Ma, Beverly J. Ferreira of Orlando, FL, Debra L. Scott and her husband William of Cranston, Michael J. Ferreira of Atlanta, GA, and Linda M. Ferreira of Rehoboth. She leaves eight grandchildren: Rebecca Maxwell, Jennifer Ferreira, Bethany Ferreira, Jeannelle D'Isa, Danielle Ferreira, Tiffany Scott, Miranda Antani, Valerie Scott, and seven great-grandchildren: Morgan and Kathryn Maxwell, Alexandra Ferreira, Noel D'Isa, Antonia and Victoria Scott, and Grayson Antani.

Beverly was raised in an industrious Italian family (Seekonk Speedway, Ice Rink, Farms, Restaurants on “The Hill”), attended Bay View Academy, and then East Providence High School. She enjoyed such things as cooking, sewing, quilling, painting, candle making and prided herself (and often shared) on her knowledge of holistic therapies. Beverly enjoyed being outside, preferably in the sun, enjoyed an adult beverage and lottery ticket from time to time, and traveled extensively with her daughter Linda with whom she had lived. She had a beautiful voice, was self-taught as an organist, had gorgeous olive skin and thick, curly hair that many complimented. She was a witty and very creative woman who lent her artistry to the jewelry and music industry as the organist for plays in the Rehoboth School district and as the musical director/organist at Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Church, Seekonk, Ma until she retired. She shall be sadly missed by those who knew and loved her.
