Rosemary Gallo

Her Catholic faith was her guiding light and the cornerstone of her existence

 With profound sadness, we announce the passing of Rosemary A. Gallo, a dedicated and humble soul who touched the hearts of many throughout her blessed life. Born in Boston on May 9, 1938, Rosemary was called to her heavenly home on July 3, 2024.

Rosemary’s Catholic faith was her guiding light and the cornerstone of her existence. She attended daily Mass at the Saint Francis Chapel in Boston and the chapel at Youville Assisted Living. In her youth  she was an active member of The Daughters of the Church of the Holy Eucharist and went on many missions trips  which displayed her unwavering commitment to her Catholic faith and a testament of her selfless and caring nature.

Rosemary devoted her professional life to the healing arts as a nurse at Boston City Hospital and Don Orione Home in East Boston where she took great pleasure in providing care for those in need. In her leisure time, Rosemary enjoyed visiting relatives on holidays where she would savor a good Italian meal.

Rosemary is survived by her cousins, Clara Mottola, Edith Shaheen of Revere, Gigi Ricciardelli  of Vermont and nieces Michele Eaton and Marilyn Maher. She was preceded in death by her parents, Maria and Pasquale Gallo, her sisters: Grace Newman and her husband, Edward and Louise Gallo.

As we mourn Rosemary’s passing, we take solace in the words of the Holy Bible, “Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted” (Matthew 5:4).

His life exemplified humility, compassion and kindness

Anthony (Tony) Sacco joined his beloved wife, Joan, who he missed every single day, in Heaven on Saturday, July 6, 2024.  He was 89 years old.  His departure from this earth was as unexpected as it was sorrowful, leaving a void in the hearts of those who loved him.

He was devoted to his family and for many years worked two or more jobs to provide for them.  Tony owned and operated Swim World of Revere for many years, building swimming pools all over the Northshore. Sacco RE was where Tony helped people fulfill their dreams of home ownership. He serviced many a Singer sewing machine!  His absolute favorite pastime was spending time with his family and looked forward to every visit.  His love, kindness, and wisdom touched the lives of everyone around him.  By the way he lived his life, he taught his children the value of hard work, perseverance, and the importance of family. He was a man of unwavering faith and a lifelong member of the parish of Saint Anthony in Revere.  His life exemplified humility, compassion and kindness.   He had a huge heart and will always be remembered by his family and friends for sharing that heart.
