Family & friends are invited to attend Visiting Hours on Friday, November 8th, in the Vertuccio & Smith, Home for Funerals, 773 Broadway (Rte. 107) REVERE from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., for Elizabeth E. “Bette” (Raulins) O’Brien, who passed in the loving presence of her God & her devoted family. Mrs. O’Brien died on Friday, November 1st (The Feast of All Saints) at the Devereux Nursing Care Center of Marblehead, following a lengthy confinement.

Born & raised in Revere, she was an Immaculate Conception “girl” from inception, attending I.C. Grammar School & as an alumna of IC High School, Class of 1946. Soon after graduation she began working with N.E. Tel & Tel (Verizon) for over 35 years. She rose quickly in the ranks, as “Head” or “Lead” Operator” & then onto managerial & executive levels at the Franklin St. NE Tel & Tel & main office (often referred to as the “Motherhouse”) “Bette” came from a family of long-time working telephone workers, who appreciated their secure & pleasant work. The “girls” sought out all the overtime they could muster always holding plans for the future. Their time, maturing, was outstanding & so much an ingredient of the “the greatest generation”. Never forget the family you were blessed with and the joy of early years. Although, she was the first born to Dorothea E. (McLaughlin) Raulins & Kenneth F. Raulins, her baby early childhood brother, Kenneth F. Raulins, Jr., died early at 5 months from early childhood disease. Thusly, “Bette” was raised as an only child, enjoying the abundant attention showered upon her, for her “larger than life personality” & her absolute stunning good looks. She never ever throughout her life, lost the gift of humility, keeping the welfare of her dear & devoted family first & prime. Friends and their well-being followed until “death did them part…” Bette referred to her role as Mother, Grandmother & Great Grandmother as the most exciting and rewarding influence on her life. Early in her young life, as a Mother, she became absorbed in the many teacher-parent organizations at Immaculate Conception & subsequently, also became involved with the volunteering opportunities in the Parish. “Bette” was also a long-standing member of the Telephone Pioneers of America.

She is the beloved wife of the late Revere Fire Lt. William F. O’Brien, who passed on Oct. 9, 2000. Cherished mother to Donna M. O’Brien-Martinson & husband Gus of Reading, Debra A. Keefe & husband James V. of Stoneham, William F. O’Brien, Jr. & wife Lauren of Revere & Dorithea M. O’Brien-Julian & husband Neil of Londonderry, NH. Adored grandmother to David G.

It was there he built his life and worked at various gas & repair stations before he began a successful career with the Steamship Authority.

His bubbly and friendly personality certainly made people feel welcome when coming & going to and from the Cape & Islands. Ed had a zest for life; He was a quiet & friendly man who loved to laugh. If you knew Eddie you may have scratched a lottery ticket with him, had a laugh at the grocery store or even attended an AA meeting with him.

He is the proud & loving father of David Copeland of Cape Cod & Christine L. Murphy of Lynnfield. He is the adored grandfather of Kai Copeland, Alyssa & Daniel Murphy.

Mary (Caccamesi) Esposito

Family & friends are invited to attend Visiting Hours on Tuesday, November 5th from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. (Noon) in the Vertuccio & Smith, Home for Funerals, 773 Broadway (Rt. 107) REVERE For Mary (Caccamesi) Esposito, who died peacefully in the presence of her family & God at the Plymouth Harborside Health Care Facility in Plymouth. She was proudly 103 years old. A funeral service will follow the visitation at 12:15 p.m. in the funeral home. Entombment will follow in St. Michael’s Cemetery, Boston.

Mary was born in Villarosa, Sicily, Italy. At the young age of 12 years old, Mary along with her parents & siblings were about to board the ship that would take them across the Atlantic to come to America with much excitement & opportunity awaiting them. Mary was denied boarding the ship because she had a case of conjunctivitis. The family still boarded the ship for their journey to America, leaving Mary in the safekeeping hands of a group of nuns. It would be the following year that Mary lived apart from her family, before she was able to join them in America. She journeyed across the Atlantic with an aide and began her life in East Boston with her family. Mary was 1 of 9 children, of which 5 babies died in Italy. Her parents had named 2 of the infants Mary, but they passed away. Mary was their third child named Mary and survived. Much like her life she showed at a very early age her persistence and willingness to persevere. At the age of 19, once again Mary’s strength was put to the test when she was diagnosed with tuberculosis. She was quarantined for 10 months and miraculously survived & fully recovered, leaving the doctors in complete amazement. As a young woman, Mary worked in Boston’s “Garment District” as a sticher. Mary went back to Italy for a visit and it was there that she would meet her future husband, Attilio. Mary returned to Boston without him. For 2 years they would have a transatlantic romance, writing letters to one another until they reunited and resided in Revere where they would have 1 son, Anthony. Mary began a career at Jordan Marsh in downtown Boston, where she worked as a Saleswoman. She held that career for 35 years. Mary was always known for “Breaking all the Rules”. With all of her trial & tribulations she never lost her zest for life or people. Her favorite past time was sitting around the table sharing a cup of coffee and telling stories about her life and interests. Her most important part of her life was her family, especially her son and his wife Laura, who became the daughter she never had. Although she was 103, years old she was an ageless wonder and the matriarch of her family.

She is the beloved wife of the late Attilio A. Esposito. Proud & loving mother of Anthony A. Esposito & his wife Laura E. of Plymouth & formerly Quincy. Dear sister of the late Charles Caccamesi, Libby Tranfaglia, & Tina Tritto. She is also lovingly survived by many nieces, nephews, grandnieces & grandnephews.
