Anna Therese (Belanger) Petit, 84, of Swansea, passed away peacefully surrounded by her family on Thursday, June 13, 2019, at Saint Anne's Hospital. She was the devoted wife of the late George "Moe" Petit.
Anna was a gifted artist who created uncountable canvases of whaling ships, seascapes and New England life. Anna was mentored by world renowned artist Louis Sylvia. Mrs. Petit was a highly talented scrimshander, creating numerous pieces. Her favorite part of life was dancing with her husband. Mrs. Petit and her late husband spent many winters in Titusville, Florida. Her family and friends will miss her dearly and always hold Anna's memory in their hearts with love. She and Moe will enjoy dancing together in eternity.
Survivors are two sons: Paul R. Petit and his long time companion Grady Zittrouer and Philip C. Petit and his wife Virginia; a niece: Donna Petit who tirelessly cared for Anna as if she were her own mother; along with several nieces and nephews.
