Louise E. (Guarente) Fulton

Family and friends are respectfully invited to attend Visiting Hours on Wednesday, May 19th from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., in the Vertuccio & Smith, Home for Funerals, 773 Broadway (Rte. 107), REVERE, for Louise E. (Guarente) Fulton, who passed following a brief illness at the Lowell General Hospital on Wednesday, May 12, 2021. Her funeral will be conducted from the funeral home on Thursday, May 20th, at 10:00 a.m., followed by a Funeral Mass in the Immaculate Conception Church (Corner of Beach St. & Winthrop Ave.) REVERE at 11:00 a.m. and immediately followed with interment in Puritan Lawn Memorial Park, Peabody. Face masks must be worn at all times and social distancing maintained in the funeral home and at the church.

A life-long resident of Revere, she was an alumna of Revere High School, Class of 1945. She began her working career in the actuarial department of John Hancock Life Insurance Company where she remained until she married and started her family. After several years, she resumed her career as a bookkeeper for several local businesses and moved on to Senior Secretary for the late Mayor George V. Colella. From there, she continued her service to the City as administrator of the Retirement Office. Louise guided all city employees through the maze of retirement regulations, and many a city employee was grateful for her guidance, patience, and comfort.

Louise’s home, built by her parents in 1930, was a welcoming space for her large family and many friends, usually with large quantities of food: “take two, they’re small”.  She was a devoted and loving wife, mother, aunt, daughter, grandmother, and great-grandmother. Sadly, on June 3, 2018, Louise lost her beloved husband, Retired Revere Chief of Police, Harold R. Fulton, with whom she enjoyed 67 years of family celebrations, travel, and winters in Florida. In addition, she was active in her church as a member of the Immaculata Guild & the Immaculate Conception Ladies Sodality; she was also a Eucharistic Minister.

Louise is the cherished mother of Lynda E. DeMeo, and her late husband, David F. DeMeo, of Billerica, and Kathleen F. Chambers of Charlotte, NC, and former son-in-law David B. Chambers of Las Vegas. She is the beloved grandmother of Dawn DeMeo of North Attleboro; Michelle A. DellaPorta and husband, Stephen J., of Billerica; Elizabeth C. Tallett and husband, Ander M. of Weston; and, Christopher D. Chambers of Dallas, Texas. She is survived by her sister-in-law Virginia Guarente, wife of her brother, the late Rev. Deacon Frederic G. Guarente. Louise is predeceased by her brothers and their wives: the late Leonard Guarente and his wife Carole, the late Amos Guarente and his wife Erva, and the late Richard Guarente and his wife Mary. She is also survived by her adored great-grandchildren Isabella M. Botte, Giovanni D. DellaPorta, Charles S. Tallett, and Alden H. Tallett, her loving sister-in-law Joyce Fischer of Rockland, Texas, along with many caring nieces, nephews, grandnieces, and grand nephews.  

Louise–Mom, Auntie, Nana, Nannie–may the peace and joy of the Lord remain within your spirit.

    How lucky a Soul to have spent so many years with the generations she carried forth. She instilled a great sense of strength, Faith, and family in all of us while still finding time to see the world with Grandpa. It feels like yesterday we all sat around the table at a holiday with my Dad in the corner or outside in the summer with the kids playing. I’m grateful that my children have these times and memories to think back on fondly. I’m grateful for all the times, the lessons and the Love. May your legacy live on in all of us.
