Provi Chase, 76, of Indianapolis, IN passed away peacefully September 2, 2021. She was born in Indianapolis, IN to the late Joseph and Providence (Miceli) Tantillo.

Provi enjoyed golfing, being surrounded by her dear friends, and spending time with her family in The Villages, Florida.

Provi is survived by her loving husband of 55 years, James Chase; daughter Michelle Schoettle; grandchildren Kevin, Alyssa, Tyler, and Sam Schoettle; and sisters Maryann (Jim) Agresta, and Scena (Tom) Whitney.
