Alice Marie (Manning) Schmitt

Family and friends are invited to attend Visiting Hours on Tuesday, October 6th, for Alice M. (Manning) Schmitt, from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. in the Vertuccio & Smith, Home for Funerals, 773 Broadway (Rte. 107), REVERE, who passed unexpectedly on Friday, October 2nd at Mount Auburn Hospital of Cambridge. Her funeral will be conducted from the funeral home on Wednesday, October 7th at 10:00 a.m., followed by a Funeral Mass in the Immaculate Conception Church (Corner of Beach St. and Winthrop Ave.) REVERE at 11:00 a.m. and immediately followed with interment at Woodlawn Cemetery, Everett. Masks must be worn, and social distancing maintained at all times.

Born in Winthrop, she was raised and educated in Revere & was a 1951 Alumna of Immaculate Conception High School of Revere. As a young lady, she became most active in the Immaculate Conception Parish Community. She belonged to many of ICC’s fund-raising endeavors for the new convent built in the 1960s and was also a member and supporter of the Immaculata Guild. Through her late mother’s involvement with the Catholic Daughters of America (CDA), Alice would become not only a member but took the reigns to become the Regent of the CDA-Court James Lee at ICC. Also, on a national level, she was appointed District Deputy of the Catholic Daughters, a post she held for 10 years. Alice Marie’s energy and devotion to the Church was enviable in that she never tired, i.e., no task too great or too menial that she could not tackle. Along with her CDA responsibilities, she was a Past President and member of the Revere Woman’s Club for many years. She also held the presidency for the Parents’ Guild at Regis College for several years. Among her other interests, were the Mass Citizen’s for Life, another group to which Alice volunteers much time and effort. However, Alice would want to be remembered as an exemplary wife, mother, daughter, grandmother, sister, niece, aunt, cousin & “best friend”. Alice’s late husband Edward T. Schmitt, Jr. who passed in March of 2004 was the proprietor and operator of the E.T. Schmitt Plumbing & Heating Corp. of Everett and Revere. Alice was the company accountant and bookkeeper until Eddie’s death.

She is the cherished mother of Anne Marie Schmitt of Revere & Eileen T. Perry & her husband Henry S. Perry & the adoring grandmother of Kathleen M. Perry & Colleen M. Perry, all of Wakefield. Devoted daughter to the late Joseph P. & Margaret E. (Howell) Manning & faithful sister to the late Rev. Joseph H. Manning & the late William J. Manning, USAF.

    Dear Anne Marie and Eileen,
    Alice was a dear, dear childhood friend from Revere of my aunt Judy Burnell Barrows and my mother Audria Burnell Moschella. Their treasured friendship lasted their lifetimes as they predeceased your mother. Alice and your father were always included in all milestone life events in the Barrows and Moschella families. I have many fond memories of Alice and loved to hear her stories of their escapades.. Alice was a kind, caring and loyal friend to Judy and Audria for over 60 years and I hope you find comfort in knowing how loved she was by them both.
    Please accept our sincere condolences from the Barrows and Moschella families.
    Thinking of you.
    Mila Moschella
