Prudence DeNardis Obituary

Prudence R. (Ouellet) DeNardis, age 85, of Crafton Heights, passed away peacefully surrounded by her family on Thursday, December 14, 2023.  Beloved wife of 44 years to the late Frank DeNardis.  Loving mother of Mark "Raphael" (Paloma) DeNardis and Francesca (Shane Cupp) DeNardis; cherished grandmother of Leo and Enzo; sister of Wilfred Ouellet and Estelle Finnegan; also survived by many nieces, nephews, and cousins.  She was born in Providence, RI.  Prudence was a remarkable woman who wore many hats in her life.  Prudence knew she wanted to be a teacher from a young age.  She was a dedicated parishioner at St. Charles Parish in Providence, RI where she began teaching in the parish school and continued teaching throughout her life.  She put her heart and soul into teaching Parisian French to elementary school children. Besides teaching as a young woman she worked as a welder (not a typical job for a woman)  and also sold encyclopedias door to door to fund her education.  She was an avid bowler, a passion she shared with her late husband, Frank.  They met at a bowling tournament in Pittsburgh in 1977 and later married.  Her family was very important to her and she will be dearly missed.   Prudence really enjoyed helping others with her therapy dog Zoe.  Relatives and friends received Monday, December 18, 2023, from 10-11:30 AM at SCHEPNER-McDERMOTT FUNERAL HOME, INC., 165 Noble Avenue, Crafton.  Funeral prayer 11;30AM at the funeral home followed by Mass of Christian Burial at 12PM in St. Philip Catholic Church, 50 W. Crafton Avenue, Crafton.  In lieu of flowers, contributions in Prudence memory may be made to Alliance of Therapy Dogs, P.O. Box 20227 Cheyenne, WY 82003 or (www.therapydogs.com).

Friends and family have shared their relationship to show their support.
