Obituary for Santina A. Caruso

Santina (Saraceno) Caruso, 93 years of age, formerly of Manchester-by-the-Sea and Revere, passed away at Essex Park in Beverly on Friday, January 4, 2019. Born in Boston, Santina was one of seven children of the late Francesco and Domenica (Bellestri) Saraceno of Augusta, Sicily. She was raised in Revere and graduated from Revere High School in 1943. She was the devoted wife of the late Eugene E. Caruso with whom she shared 46 years of marriage.

Santina will be dearly missed by her daughters and their spouses, Donna Caruso and Francine Brown of Plantation, FL; Susan Caruso and Robert Ruderman of Manchester-by-the-Sea; and Jean and Garrett Pembroke of Beverly; and her granddaughters, Ashley Brown and her husband Jorge Alarcon of Ft. Myers, FL; and Samantha Brown of Orlando, FL.

“Mummy” was a woman of many quiet talents and a strong work ethic. She was always ready to do more than her share in her roles as daughter, wife, mother, friend, seamstress, waitress, party platter constructor and co-owner of the family business. She made every task fun and inspired those around her. Called upon for either an adventure or a challenge, her standard response was “I’m ready!” (often half an hour before necessary). Her daughters will remember her appetite for life as well as her strength and resilience. They will continue to strive to recreate her delicious recipes, particularly her Sunday gravy which was legendary and set the scene for many happy memories. We will all miss the smile that could light up a room.

Santina’s family is deeply grateful to all the individuals who cared for her, most recently at Essex Park, Care Dimensions and Blueberry Hill. We thank our friends and family for their support.

Family and friends are invited to celebrate Santina’s life on Tuesday, January 8, 2019. Visiting hours will take place at Campbell Funeral Home, 525 Cabot Street in Beverly from 10:00 to 11:30 AM. A mass of Christian burial will be celebrated at Sacred Heart Church, 62 School Street, Manchester-by-the-Sea at 12:00 PM. Burial will follow at Puritan Lawn Memorial Park, 185 Lake Street, Peabody.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Santina’s memory to The Open Door, 28 Emerson Avenue, Gloucester, MA 01930 (www.foodpantry.org ). Or consider performing a random act of kindness in her honor.
