Elizabeth Farrell Obituary

Elizabeth C. (Lagace) Farrell, 85, of The Villages, FL, died February 24, 2024, in Advent Health, Dade City, FL. She was the wife of the late Charles W. Farrell. Born in Woonsocket, she was the daughter of the late Raymond R. and Lillian A. (Blanchard) Lagace.

Mrs. Farrell studied at Our Lady of Fatima College of Nursing and became an LPN. She worked as the nurse administrator at the former St. Francis Home, Woonsocket for approximately 15 years up until her retirement. Prior, she worked at Fogarty Memorial Hospital for nearly 20 years.

Elizabeth's Christian Faith was the core to how she lived her life. She enjoyed cooking and trying new recipes, going for rides in her golf cart with her dog Holly, swimming, watching movies, playing Mah Jong, and visiting her children. She was a longtime resident of North Smithfield, RI, but she absolutely loved living in The Villages. She loved having a captive audience where she could share her knowledge of how being a resident of The Villages was sure to deliver a happy retirement life.

She leaves her son, Jason Farrell and his wife, Amy, of Norwell, MA; three daughters, Diane Brierley and her husband, David, of The Villages, FL; Jane Biron and her husband, Stephen, of North Smithfield, RI; and Betsy Risk and her husband, Michael, of North Smithfield, RI; her sister, Susan Ouellette, and her husband Paul, of The Villages, FL. She was blessed to have seven grandchildren and five great grandchildren. She also leaves her dear friend, Diana Farr, from The Villages, Fl.

Her funeral will be held Wednesday March 6, 2024 beginning at 10 AM, followed by a service at 11 AM in the Holt Funeral Home, 510 South Main St., Woonsocket. Burial will follow in St. Charles Cemetery, Blackstone, MA. Calling hours are Tuesday from 4-7 PM.
