Marianna was born in Swampscott and lived her early years in Lynn. She was a graduate of St. Mary’s Grammar School and St. Mary’s High School. She came to Revere in 1956 where she has remained. From the early 1960s through the late 1980s Marianna was a political aide to many of the candidates running for politics. She devoted a great deal of time and energy to her parishes of faith including Immaculate Conception and Holy Rosary of Winthrop. She spent many years both volunteering and working at both parishes and eventually served at parish secretary at the Immaculate Conception of Revere for several years. After her time at the Immaculate, she devoted herself to helping Rev. William Cummings at St. John the Evangelist Church in Cambridge, until Fr. Cumming’s untimely death. She then joined the parish staff at Holy Rosary Church in Winthrop as parish secretary and volunteer extraordinaire. Her life revolved around the welfare of her family and her church. She was a staunch member of the Massachusetts Citizens for Life, a member of the Maranatha Prayer Group of Everett and several other religious organizations. For over 20 years she worked as a secretary within the Revere Elections Department at Revere City Hall, where her personality and charm became apparent to all. Until recently, Marianna was still working at Holy Rosary Parish in Winthrop.

 

She is the wife of the late John J. Reynolds. She is the devoted mother of Kathleen A. Reynolds and Michael J. Reynolds and his wife Laura S., all of Revere and the late Mary Reynolds. She is the cherished grandmother of Christopher J. Reynolds and his wife Jennifer R., Michelle K. O’Hara and her husband Richard and Michael J. Reynolds, Jr., all of Revere.

    Marianna was instrumental in forming the foundation of my new-found faith in Christ. She taught the Word of God, but more importantly she lived the Word. Marianna opened up her home to believers as we shared God’s Word, prayed, and fellowshipped. She loved the Lord and His people and shared with us her gift of hospitality. Unfortunately because of a lingering sickness I was unable to pay my respects and offer my condolences to her family in person. My wife and I are praying for her family and as Christians we have a blessed hope that we will see Marianna again as we the saints of God worship around the throne of God in our eternal home where there will be no more sickness and dying. Thanks sister Marianna for blessing me in many areas of my life. Love in Jesus, Larry
