Agnes Silveira Pasquale "THE CAKE LADY" passed away at the age of 94 on September 4, 2023, at the Grand Islander Nursing Home, Middletown, RI. She was born on July 26, 1929, in Middletown, RI to the late Manuel D. and Mary Soares Silveira.

Agnes was married in 1949 to the late Frank Pasquale Sr. of Middletown for 60 years until his passing in 2009. She was a professional cake decorator and a homemaker residing in Middletown all her life. She was a communicant of Jesus Saviour Church in Newport, RI, and was a member of the Jesus Saviour Rosary Sodality, the Middletown Republican Town Committee, and the Senior Center. Agnes was a proud mother of two Eagle Scouts. She traveled with her family to California, Florida, New Hampshire, Georgia, and Portugal, went on many cruises, loved playing cards, dancing, knitting, and making afghans for her family. Spending time with her family and cooking special Sunday dinners gave her much joy. She loved making wedding cakes and became known as The Cake Lady. She enjoyed canning vegetables from her garden.

She is survived by her son Frank Pasquale Jr. and his wife Joann of Middletown, grandsons Frank Pasquale III (Lauren) of South Kingstown, Michael Pasquale of Middletown, great-granddaughters Nora and Lily Pasquale, sisters-in-law Arlene Silveira of Middletown and Josephine Magnuski of Pawtucket, a special niece Valerie who was always there for her, and many nieces, nephews and cousins.
