About Maria "Helen" E Pannozzi

Married to James Pannozzi in Seekonk, Mass in 1938. Had one child, Dr. James R. Pannozzi AP. Resided at their house at 19 Sabra Street, Cranston, Rhode Island 02910 from 1938-1976. Incredible story. Like her peers, lived and died never knowing that she had Hashimoto's thyroiditis, an autoimmune disease causing extreme fatigue and other problems. Nearly died trying to have more children and survived thanks to a blood transfusion, in 1952, from cousin John Di Sano, son of her sister Carmella Di Sano. Loved to visit Newport, see Ocean Drive and walk on Cliff Walk. Also liked to visit Watch Hill Rhode island. Worked at many of the major historical Rhode Island jewelry companies including Trifari's where she met Margaret Santuri (1918-2009) who later became Godmother to James R. Pannozzi, her only son. Favorite music: Battle Hymn of the Republic, Sicilian Songs, Irish Songs, and "Am I Blue" (Hoagy Carmicheal). ...more info
