Camille R. Sacco

Family & friends are invited to attend a Visitation on Thursday, September 3rd, beginning at 9:00 a.m. through 11:15 a.m., in the Vertuccio & Smith, Home for Funerals, 773 Broadway (Rte. 107) REVERE for Camille R. Sacco, who passed following a long illness & struggle with the complications of metastatic brain cancer on Sunday, August 30th at her beloved Revere residence. A brief Funeral Service will be held in the funeral home, following the visitation, at 11:30 a.m., followed by a Graveside Service at Woodlawn Cemetery, Everett at 12:00 p.m. (Noon) with interment to follow. In accordance with the ongoing pandemic protocol, Masks must be worn at all times & social distancing observed.

Born & raised in East Boston on December 6, 1936, she attended East Boston schools & was an alumna of East Boston High School, Class of 1954. In 1970, she moved to Saugus before coming to Revere, fifty years ago. After high school, she began a career with Boston Mutual Insurance Co. of Boston as clerk-stenographer for about 15 years. She worked most briefly with her late husband, Peter J. Sacco, Jr. as a bookbinder at the former “Seaboard Bindery” of Boston. Soon, she began her family & became a stay-at-home Mom, taking care of Peter, her two children & later in her life her grandson “TJ” (Anthony J. Godino, Jr.). Strong faith & love of family were the hallmarks of her life. However, her goodness & outstanding humanity, did not confine her passion for humanity at that point. She was a genuine “Fred Rogers neighbor and friend”, always extending a helping hand to those who suddenly found themselves in the need of assistance of any kind. Not only did Camille thrive on the excitement of the holidays, she had her own repertoire of traditional observances. At Halloween, not only would the children receive their goodies, the accompanying parents would be the recipient of their own “Lollipop”. Christmas was “full-throttle” ahead & all the neighbors would receive candy canes personally delivered to their homes. She took great pride in maintaining her home with decorations for all seasons.

Camille was the beloved wife of the late Peter J. Sacco, Jr. who passed on August 23, 1999. She is the cherished mother to Peter Sacco, Advertising Sales Rep for the Revere Journal & Independent Newspaper Group & Stephanie J. Sacco-Godino & her husband Anthony J. “Tony” of Revere & the devoted grandmother to Anthony J. “TJ” Godino, Jr. of Revere. She is the dear sister to Violet Vernacchio of Florida, Edmund J. Vargus, Jr. & his wife Arlene of New Hampshire & the late Dorothy Merriman. She was the adoring daughter to the late Edmund J. Vargus, Sr. & Rose J. (Volpini) Vargus. She was also the surrogate Mom to her late canine companion, “Bandit” & her late morning dove, “Birdy”.

In conclusion, soon after Peter’s passing, Camille came across these words of inspiration. “Death is not the greatest loss in life. The greatest loss is what dies inside us while we live.” -Norman Cousins.
