Ann Costa Obituary

Ann M. (Bandilli) Costa, age 77, passed away on February 20, 2024, surrounded by her loving family. She was the wife of the late Thomas Costa, Sr., who died in 1999.

Ann  was a lifelong resident of Seekonk.

Ann was born in Pawtucket, the daughter of the late Francis and Alice (Sequin) Bandilli Sr.  

Ann worked multiple jobs at a time, throughout her life, always providing for her family. She was a dedicated mother and devout Catholic. She was a former President of the St. Mary’s Women’s Guild and taught CCD for many years.

She leaves three children, Susan Grandchamp and her husband Gilbert, Michael the youngest child, and her oldest son, Rev. Thomas Costa, Jr.

Ann cherished her grandchildren, Briana, Michael, Steven and his partner Kayla.

She always prayed and cared about all of her children, especially her great-grandchildren, Benjamin and Stella. She also leaves her partner and friend, John Cummings as well as many extended friends and family. She was the sister of John Bandilli and the late Francis Bandilli.

The family would like to thank Dr. Thursby and staff for their care over these many years. She always told the kids; I love you all equally even though God made you each a little different. She never stopped encouraging her family to work hard and go to Church. She leaves behind a legacy of faith and memories we will cherish forever. Someday we will meet again because our God tells us so. Until we are together again, say hello to Sampson, Nike, Beau, Smokey, and Brady.

“May your precious soul rest in peace eternally.”
