August 9, 1958 — June 19, 2024


Jacqueline A. (DiPrete) Zannini

65, formerly of Cranston, passed away on Wednesday, June 19, 2024. Born in Providence, she was the daughter of the late James DiPrete, Jr. and Janice (Cambio) DiPrete.

Jacqueline was a graduate of Cranston High School West class of 1976. She then graduated from RISD and worked as an architect and interior designer for her entire career.  Jackie's caring devotion to friends and family, love of the mountains and skiing, horseback riding, hiking, swimming in the ocean, and travel defined her as much as her work. 

She was the loving sister of Kenneth James DiPrete of Coventry: the late Patricia "Tish" DiPrete Handy (Arthur) of Cranston; Ronald James DiPrete (Martha) of New York City; dear Aunt of Alexander James Handy and Mia James DiPrete. She was the wife of the late Michael J. Zannini.
