Dearly loved Theresa J. (DeLuca) Crivello passed peacefully on Tuesday, July 14th with family by her side at her home in Revere. Born, raised & educated in Revere, Mrs. Crivello, a 1936 alumna of Revere High School, met and married the love of her life, the late Vincent J. Crivello, in 1941. In 1926, her family opened “DeLuca’s Market” on the corner of Beach St. & Thurlow Ave. in Revere. Theresa dedicated countless hours assisting her parents & brother Angelo in the full operation of the market. Neighbors & customers will certainly remember her gracious smile, sense of humor, and willingness to be of service. During the Depression & beyond, she & her family at DeLuca’s Market were overwhelmingly kind & generous to folks bearing financial distress. Theresa worked at the store alongside her dear brother Angelo and later her beloved husband Vincent until it closed in 2010. Theresa & Vincent were active members of Immaculate Conception Parish Community. Both were long-time volunteers and supporters of the church and among the parish’s first appointed Eucharistic Ministers. This extraordinary couple enjoyed 72 years together in marriage before Vincent’s death in June 2013. Besides her devotion to family and friends, Theresa expressed her boundless love through cooking, baking, and handwork. She also enjoyed gardening and dance.

 

 

She is the cherished mother of Vincent J. Crivello, Jr. & his wife Marie (Revere), Janet M. Pletcher & her husband Stephen D. (Prides Crossing), & Marilyn J. Kobus & her husband Anton H. (Manchester-by-the-Sea). She is the devoted & adoring grandmother to Patricia M. Bright & her husband Ronald (Melrose), Diane L. Perry & her husband Richard (Peabody), Brian T. Pletcher & his wife Kellian (Somerville), Marisa L. Kobus (Medford), & Philip A. Kobus (Manchester-by-the-Sea); great-grandmother of Lindsay and Cory Bright, Brandon and Dillon Perry; & dear sister of the late Angelo H. & Ralph T. DeLuca.

    Grandma,
    We will remember you as the most unselfish, caring, loving person in our entire family. I am so grateful my children were graced with your presence as well as you instilling these qualities in them. That is what family is all about. You will deeply be missed and knowing that you are with dear Papa and uncle is very comforting to us.
