Thanks to the Find a Grave "request a photo", I have these three photographs of the gravestone of, Linda Jean Rivelli who died 6 Oct 1961 (date from the cemetery register) of a brain tumor while bowling with friends. She was only 14. Thanks to Linda Allen, gravestone photographer for taking these photos and bringing my friend back into my heart once again.

St. Ann Cemetery is a massive cemetery in Cranston, The Office of Catholic Cemeteries has excellent information posted about the cemetery and the types of services held.

When a child dies, it is a really hard decision as to where to lay them to rest. I don't know if Linda's mother's maiden name was De Pasquale or Maccarone which would help me find out who these people are who are buried here with her. I tend to think grandparents or godparents might be the answer.
