Gloria Jean (Lunt) Precopio

Gloria Jean (Lunt) Precopio, 74, of Mattapoisett, MA, passed on Thursday, February 18, 2021, at the McCarthy Care Center in Sandwich, MA, after a brief illness. She was the wife of the late Ralph M. Precopio Sr.

            Gloria was born in Yarmouth, ME, spent her childhood growing up on Frenchboro Island, ME, then lived in the Lewiston-Auburn and Phippsburg areas until moving to Mattapoisett, MA. Gloria is known for her hospitality, always welcoming people into her home and cooking up a storm for friends and family. A creative and fun-loving person, Gloria loved various art forms, cooking, sewing, and is known for her beautiful quilts and papercrafts. For several years, Gloria was the co-owner and a familiar face at the farmstand at East Over Farms in Rochester, MA, where her delicious homemade pies and cookies kept everyone well fed.

            Her friends and family will miss Gloria tremendously. She will always be remembered for her kindness, love, and blueberry pie.

            She is survived by her daughter, Maria Precopio-Giddings of Providence, RI, and her son-in-law Patrick Giddings.

            Memorial arrangements are postponed until warmer weather when it will be safer to gather and celebrate Gloria’s life. The family asks that donations be made to the Cape Cod Commercial Fishing Alliance in place of flowers. Arrangements are by the Saunders-Dwyer Mattapoisett Home for Funerals, 50 County Rd., Mattapoisett. For online condolence book, please visit
