Lucy M. (Reppucci) Salemme

A well-attended funeral mass was celebrated on Saturday, Nov.12th in the Immaculate Conception Church, Revere for Lucy M.(Reppucci) salemme-lucySalemme, who passed rather unexpectedly on Tuesday Nov.8th in the Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston. Her time of death, was just 5 minutes shy of her 94th birthday observance.

Born & raised in East Boston, she was a 1940 alumna of East Boston High School. As a young woman, she entered the work force at the FEDERAL RESERVE BANK OF BOSTON, for nearly ten (10) years as office manager. Later, after her children, were settled and married, she went to work, along with three of her sisters, at the former LIBERTY MARKET CORP. OF EAST BOSTON. Lucy was the supervisor of the “Food Court” at Liberty for over twenty (20) years. Always known to be “busy”, Lucy joined hands with her only daughter, Evelyn, when she opened her business, “RECEIVABLES MANAGEMENT ASSOCIATES” & took the role as Personal Secretary & Office Manager. She remained most active, till very recently at 93 years, young. A bit of a “fashionista”, she retained her interest in her appearance and style. Her family will certainly, experience the loss, however, the memories and “excitement” of her life will do much to ease their pain.

Lucy was widowed in May of 1988, when her beloved husband, Ralph A. Salemme, passed. She is the cherished Mother to: Evelyn A. Lumino & her late husband, Joseph R. of West Peabody & Genard “Jerry” Salemme, Senior Aid to Senator Edward Markey, and Jerry’s wife, Rachel Welch of Arlington, Virginia. She is the adoring Grandmother to Christopher G. Salemme, Nicole M. Kahle & her husband, J. Ryan “Michael A. & Matthew A. Salemme, all of Arlington, VA. She is also lovingly survived by her great-grand-daughter, Samantha Grace, many nieces, nephews, grand-nieces & grand-nephews. She is the dear sister to the late, Ann Giglio, Eleanor Santoro, Carmella M. Elliott, Anthony A.”Tom” Repucci, John Repucci, Joseph & Evelvn “Reppucci. Interment was in Woodlawn Cemetery, Everett.  Lucy was a
long-time devotee and daily communicant at ICC for many years.
