Mildred A. (Muschiano) Picard, 81, passed away peacefully Sunday morning, February 4, 2024, at Brentwood Nursing Home, Warwick.

She was the beloved wife of the late Richard E. Picard, Sr., who passed away in 2018.  Born in Providence, a daughter of the late Albert “Al the Barber” Muschiano and Flaminia O. “Fannie” (DeCesare) Muschiano.  She resided in Cranston for many years.

Mildred attended John F. Deering High School in West Warwick and Johnson & Wales Business School. She worked as a medical secretary at Kent County Hospital Radiology for several years until she embarked on the journey of marriage on May 30, 1963, and entrepreneurship alongside her husband Richard.  They built the Fishbowl Aquarium in West Warwick from the ground up.  For 28 years, they nurtured their business, weaving memories of joy and happiness. Her dedication to family and business illuminated her path, embodying the essence of hard work and commitment.  She loved the sunshine and enjoyed being on their boat or walking by the water.  She was also a homemaker and enjoyed cooking and entertaining her family on the holidays.
