Liberty Market was owned & operated by the Lombardo Family, friends of the Reppucci Family. Locally in Revere, back in the late fifties & early sixties she was a clerk for the former, Russo’s Bakery, on Broadway, Revere, now Luberto’s Bakery. For many of the years at Liberty Market, all of Ann’s sisters worked with her, namely, Eleanor, Carmella & Lucy. Back in the seventies, eighties and early nineties, the family knew where to locate the Reppucci Girls, especially on a Saturday. (All had married and taken their marriage names), however, they were always referred to as the Reppucci Girls. Ann was also a devotee of the Immaculate Conception Parish Community, Revere , always active in the Immaculata Guild of the IC School & Maria Assunta Guild, Ann chaired the annual IC Fall Bazaar for several years. She & her late husband, Roger, he, an usher for IC & active member of the Holy Name Society, were most generous to the church, especially at the time of the building of the new
Church in 1990.

 

Ann is the devoted mother to, Roger C. Giglio & his wife Maryanne of Revere, Joyce C. Blais & her husband, Donald E. of Saugus & Carl D. Giglio of Revere.

    I am sorry to hear about the loss of your dear loved one. God’s words at 1 Corinthians 15:26 says The last enemy death, is brought to nothing. God hates death. He has a yearning to end it. ( Isaiah 25:8) May God’s words bring some comfort to you and your family. My prayers are with you and your family.
