Patricia A. Lamperti of Yarmouthport, MA, peacefully passed away while surrounded by her loving family on Thursday, April 29, 2021 at the age of 84. She is remembered by her family as the beloved and devoted wife to her late husband, Albert A. Lamperti, the loving mother of Patrice Cushion (John) of Montana, Michael Lamperti (Pam) of Walpole, Roberta Lamperti of Walpole, John Lamperti (Melissa) of Plainville and Paul Lamperti of Hyannis, the cherished grandmother Jen (Lamperti) Ireton, Jess (Lamperti) Ollis, Heather (Lamperti) El Andaloussi, Josh Lamperti, Francesco Carpeno, Giovanni Carpeno, Jeremy Lamperti, Marissa Lamperti, and Cheyenne Lamperti, and of course, the caring great-grandmother of Lily, Adelyn and Lucciana.
Patricia is survived by her sister Priscilla Hutchins and her husband Kenneth of Northborough and many cousins, nieces and nephews. She is preceded in death by her parents Richard I. and Grace M. (Scott) Glass and her husband of 63 years, Albert Lamperti (February 27, 2021).
Patricia, known as Patty by her friends and family, was born in Attleboro, MA on May 7, 1936 to Richard & Grace Glass; she was the eldest of two daughters. As a young girl she lived in Norfolk and Franklin, MA, but moved to California in 1940 when her father enlisted in the US Navy during World War II. When her family returned from California, they had many more places to call home. With more homes came more friends, memories, and challenges, most notably education. With so many new homes and different schools to attend, homeschooling from aunts and cousins became a weekly ritual. Finally, in 1951, the family settled in their own family homestead in Walpole, allowing Patty to attend and graduate from Walpole High School in 1954.
Patty was always drawn to water and beaches. As a child she enjoyed many summers with her aunts, uncles, and cousins at Kingsbury Beach in Eastham. For many years, she continued this tradition every summer with her own children. In her formative years, she loved participating in the Walpole Swim Team. Being a strong swimmer, she could be counted on every Sunday to help her team.
After high school, she attended Chamberlain School of Design in Boston, majoring in retail and graduating in 1956. Her internships included ordering merchandise for R.F. White’s and Jordan’s. While working and commuting to and from Boston, she met her best friends, Gayle and Earl Locke, whom she and her future husband would enjoy many decades of travel, Saturday night card games and weekends by the pool.
The following year on October 30, 1957, she married her high school sweetheart, Albert Lamperti, and they began welcoming their five children over the next 14 years.
Even though raising five children is a full-time job, she also managed the interior designing for her husband’s custom-built homes as well as his bookkeeping. As a mom and homemaker, she excelled. She always made sure her family had the best meals, made from scratch of course; there was always something cooking whether it was a meal, homemade breads, cookies, or desserts. Not only did her own family enjoy her cooking, these treats were well sought after in the children’s schools, often being bartered between children.
Eventually, her children grew up and she started yet another career with Massachusetts Rehabilitation Commission as a bookkeeper. Fourteen years later, she retired and shortly she and Al moved to a final home in Yarmouthport.
An artist at heart, she could often be found painting landscapes and still life forms for her family. If she was not painting, she was reading a romance novel or enjoying one of her other hobbies including feeding wild birds, shopping, crafting, or enjoying outings with family & friends.
With a sweet disposition and a love for animals, she enjoyed many pets including dogs, cats, birds, chickens and even a horse. She loved them all, especially her German Shepherd, Max.
Her family will lovingly remember life with her as adventurous. She has given her family many memories to recapture and hold dear. She had a smile that revealed dimples, and giggles that could make anyone laugh. She is remembered by the world as the life of our family, the devoted true love of our dad, an accomplished artist, athlete, and lover of animals. She will forever have a warm place in our hearts.
