Julie N. (Butler) Marshall

Family & friends are invited to attend Visiting Hours on Thursday, June 28th, beginning at 9:00 a.m., in the Vertuccio & Smith, Home for Funerals, 773 Broadway (Route 107) Revere for Julie N. (Butler) Marshall, who passed after a short illness on Saturday, June 23rd at Boston’s Massachusetts General Hospital. The visitation will continue until 11 :30 a.m. and then followed by a Funeral Mass in the Immaculate Conception Church (Corner of Beach St. & Winthrop Ave.) Revere at 12:00 p.m. (Noon). Interment will be in Puritan Lawn Memorial Park, Peabody.

Born & raised in Chelsea, she attended Chelsea schools & was a 1950 alumna of Chelsea High School. Her working career was with Monarch Life Insurance Co. as Office Manager for fifteen years. Julie moved from Chelsea in 1965 to Malden until moving to Revere in 1972. Both Julie & her late husband, Revere Detective, Joseph R. Marshall, became members of the Revere Loyal Order of the Moose, Chapter #1272 over 35 years ago. They joined this service organization exactly for what it was founded, i.e. for service to the needy and unfortunate. Their commitment was marked with integrity and devotion. After Joe passed in May of 1994, Julie continued her work with the Moose organization not only on a local level but on a national level as well. She held the following titles & positions with grace and dignity. She was the Past Dean of the International Academy of Friendship Board, Past Deputy Grand Regent for Massachusetts & Rhode Island and Co-Chairperson of the Massachusetts & Rhode Island Youth Awareness Program which was closest to her heart.  Julie held-dear, volumes of wonderfully devoted friends.  Until her untimely passing, Julie maintained a position as captain on the Senior Ladies Bowling Team and on the Revere Senior Center Bocce League.  She loved dancing and laughing with her friends.  It is ironic that such a petite lady could be responsible for carrying out so many good works for her charitable passions and endeavors.

Julie cherished family most of all in life.  She is the treasured mother of Patricia A. “Patti” Profenna & her husband, William V. of Everett, Christine Hilton of Yarmouth, Maine, Michael A. Ruggelo & his wife, Tami of Amesbury & Judy L. Hommel & her husband, William of Revere. She is the devoted grandmother of Christopher M. Profenna of Saugus, Alyssa A. Smith & her husband, Andreas of Tewksbury, Colleen L. Ruggelo of Brunswick, Maine, Steven M. Ruggelo of Plaistow, New Hampshire, Craig Hilton of Brunswick, Maine, Bradford Hilton & his wife, Valerie of San Diego, California, Powers J. Hommel & Spencer W. Hommel, both of Revere & Kelsey Seward of Amesbury. Also lovingly survived by 5 great grandchildren, Nolan, Rayna, Aiden, Grayson & Avery and one great great granddaughter, Willow. She was also the dear companion of the late William DeMartino. Because of Julie’s heartfelt generosity and care for charities, rather than flowers, remembrances may be made to St. Jude ( or to Survivors by the Sea (

    My condolences to Chris and the family. She lives on in each of you. Her love of life and people in need will not stop but continues with everyone who she came in contact with. She sleeps on this side but awoke on the other side, enjoying her time with those on that side. Remember it’s not good bye but until we meet again. May God’s love comfort you in your time of sorrow and his Grace hugs you when you need a loving arms around you. Be strong my brother.
