Margaret Lorraine (Davis) Nappi, 90
PORTLAND - Margaret Lorraine (Davis) Nappi (Nana, or Nana Peggy to some) passed away on New Year's Eve 2017, surrounded by her loved ones, following a brief illness. She was 90 years old, born Oct. 24, 1927.
One of five children born to Clyde Davis and Edna Nixon Davis, she grew up on Munjoy Hill, where she met the love of her life, Benedetto J. Nappi Sr. They had six children and were together until Benedetto's death in 1990.
As a young woman, Peggy attended Cathedral Schools and later graduated with distinction. She was employed at a young age at J.J. Nissen and HP Hood, and many years later at Unum and Maine National Bank.
Her greatest joy was caring for three generations of children, her own and then her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She was a much-loved mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and aunt. A soft-spoken, lovely lady, she will be sadly missed by her five surviving children and spouses: Benedetto J. Nappi (wife Judy), Mary Miller (husband Timm), Sandra Rizzo (husband Sully), Lorraine Spydell (husband Barry), and Regina Nappi (husband Michael Robinson). She will also be dearly missed by her surviving 13 grandchildren, 15 great-grandchildren, and several nieces and nephews.
She was predeceased by a newborn son, Peter; three sisters, Mary Lawler, Helen Fontaine, and Edna Chapman; and a brother, Charles "Sonny" Davis.
There will be a private ceremony in the spring to celebrate her long life. To sign Margaret's guest book and leave memories and condolences for the family, visit:
