Beverlee (Riccardi) Shallcross


Beverlee (Riccardi) Shallcross passed away peacefully on April 13th, 2022.  Her final days were spent surrounded by her family. Born on March 15, 1943 in Newington, CT, she was the daughter of the late Frank and Elizabeth Riccardi.  She was a graduate of Newington High School, class of 1961, and worked in the dietary department at Rhode Island Hospital for almost 30 years before retiring. 

Beverlee was the devoted mother to Lynn (Shallcross) Nero and husband, Chris, of Encinitas, CA, and Peter and Keith Shallcross both of Seekonk, MA.   She is survived by her brother, Richard Riccardi and his wife, Joan (Spencer) Riccardi of Port Charlotte, FL and sister, Sharon Riccardi, of East Hartford, CT.  She was the adored Nana of Cameron, Britt and Cole Nero.

Beverlee's highest priority was her family.  Her crowning achievement was raising her three children to the best of her ability.  Mom, we are proud of you and we can't thank you enough.  We will miss your vivacious laughter, your thoughtfulness and your enthusiasm for family gatherings. 

A Mass of Christian Burial will be held on June 6, 2022 at 11:30 am at St Mary's Catholic Church, 626 Willard Ave, Newington, CT.  A private burial will follow at West Meadow Cemetery, where Beverlee will rest with her parents.  In lieu of flowers, donations may be sent to HopeHealth Hospice Center, 1085 North Main St, Providence, RI.
