Annamaria A. Pearlman

Pearlman, Annamaria A., 74, died Thursday, August 6, 2020 at home. She was the beloved wife of Marc J. Pearlman for 38 years, and devoted mother of Riccardo Pearlman of Rumford and Gabriel Pearlman of Austin, TX. Dear sister of Cynthia Fielden of Cranston, Sonia Stingo of Ashland, MA and John Giovanni of Tampa, FL. Born in Naples, Italy, a daughter of the late Raffaele and Luisa (Pezzella) Stingo, she had lived in Rumford for over 5 years, and previously raised her family in Cranston.

As she began her life in the US with her first son, she worked as a CPA for companies including Lippitt Aviation where she also earned her Private Pilot’s license. After marrying Marc, they embarked on what would become a family business designing and building kitchens, baths and interiors across the US. Always a student, Annamaria had also earned a bachelor’s degree in Interior Design from RISD to better serve her company and clients.

In 1983 she had her second son, Gabriel. Although still running the company with her husband, she turned her attention towards being the best mother she could for her children. She also took great pride in her Italian heritage. This was reflected in her masterful cooking, and unending study of languages and history.

Annamaria was through her life driven by her insatiable intellectual curiosity, and deep belief in hard work and action. Though grieving, her entire family feels deeply proud of her life which was full of achievement, pursuit, hard work and unending love.

Funeral services and Shiva will be private. In lieu of flowers, contributions in her memory may be made to the Cure Alzheimer’s Fund in Wellesley, Massachusetts.
