Marina was born in St. John New Brunswick, Canada and was raised & educated in Rexton, New Brunswick, Canada. She came to the United States in September of 1961. Marina was married in 1972 to Leonard Richards and the couple made their home in Revere, where they began their family. Marina was a proud & loving mother of her only child Robin. She worked at Cerretani’s in Revere in the Meat Department, then later after Cerretani’s closed she began a 23-year career with Stop & Shop. She worked there until May of 2020 when her health declined and she was no longer able to work. Marina was always an energetic woman who had a positive outlook no matter what the circumstances were. She was labeled “The Queen of Stop & Shop”. She made friends very easily with her beautiful warm smile and outgoing personality. She was a woman of great faith & was a devoted parishioner of Immaculate Conception Church in Revere. Marina loved fashion and loved shopping for clothes. She was always dressed for any occasion and prided herself on her appearance. Marina was an avid bowler and was once featured on Candlepins for Cash.  She loved going to music concerts, sometimes by herself. She was a big Elvis Presley fan. She would also frequent the theatre & her all-time favorite was Phantom of the Opera. Her outgoing personality allowed her to make friends very easily, wherever she went. One of her most favorite places was frequenting York Beach in York, ME. Her family will forever remember all the trips back to Canada & the countless memorable trips to York Beach followed by an ice cream & a trip over to Nubble Lighthouse.

She is the beloved wife of the late Leonard Richards of 16 years. Loving mother of the late Robin A. Imperato. Cherished & proud grandmother of Luke & Jake Imperato, both of Revere. Dear sister of Paulette Keraghan & husband Karl of Manchester, NH, Guy Boucher & wife Maryanne of Waltham, Bernadette Jaillet & Yvette Gaisie, both of Calgary, Alberta Canada. She is also lovingly survived by her aunt Rose M. Richard & many loving nieces, nephews, grandnieces & grandnephews.  Late member of the “Red Hats”.

    Marina,

    I just read that you passed away. I look at your apartment across the street from me and i can still picture your lights going on very early early in the morning as you were getting ready for work. Every Saturday, I would see you at the 4:00 mass with Luke and Jake. Please shine your bright light over those two little boys. You were a beautiful lady inside and out. I will never forget you passing by my house each day and we would catch up.

    May you, your husband and Robin’s souls rest in eternal peace. I will miss you my friend.

    Luv ya,
    Jeannine
