    The last of the Farrell clan in East Greenwich. I will miss talking to Aunt Ev and being able to ask about family pics and memories of years past since mom’s passing. She was always happy to talk about her grandchildren and what they were up to. Aunt Ev was always excited about going for family visits, church activities (the breakfasts) and outings with my mom and cousins Chris and Tony. She will be sadly missed and fondly remembered.
