- In 1920, Rafael and her husband joseph DiAngelo (as per source) were living in their own home at 57 Courtland Street, Providence, RI. Her parents and brothers lived in another apartment in the building.
Owings Stone remembers visiting Auntie Rafael in her apartment on Broadway, Providence. She always had opera playing on the radio and served incredibly hard cookies. He always thought they were stale and only later learned they were biscotti meant to be dunked in whatever you were drinking.
