Mrs. Antoinette M. “Ann” (Marino) Theo, age 76, of Swampscott, died peacefully on Thursday, March 16, 2017, surrounded by her loving family after a courageous battle with cancer. She was the wife of the late Peter A. Theo. Ann was born and raised in Lynn and was the daughter of the late Emilio and Elettra (Senatore) Marino, both whom immigrated here from Nusco, Italy after World War I. Ann lived in Swampscott for the past 45 years.
Ann is survived by her son, Christopher Theo of Hudson, N.H.; her two daughters, Kerri Crescenzo and her husband, Brian of Peabody and Stephanie Reiland and her husband, Scott of North Andover; her grandchildren, Camden and Mirabel Reiland; two sisters, Frances Vocino and Mary Russo of Lynn; three brothers, Peter Marino and his wife, Rose of Peabody, Joseph Marino and his wife, Josephine of Lynn, and Michael Marino of Lynn; as well as many loving nieces and nephews. She was the sister of the late Ida Rowe, Carmen Marino, Enrico Marino, Antonio Marino, Dominic Marino and Antonetta Marino.
Ann was born June 13, 1940, and was named Antoinette because she was born on St. Anthony’s Day. She was a graduate of Lynn Classical High School, Class of 1957 and Salem State College, where she received her Master’s Degree in Education. She was an elementary school teacher with the Lynn Public Schools for over 20 years, until her retirement. As a school teacher, Ann loved to travel the world visiting countries such as England, France, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Greece, and Tangiers, Africa. Ann met her husband, Peter at Frank’s Sea Grill on a Thursday night when she and her friends attended a Greek dance there. Ann and Peter fell in love and several years later were married at St. Francis Church in Lynn. She was well loved by her family and the friends she made from high school, college, and throughout her adult life. She enjoyed the arts, attending shows and musicals, and trips to Foxwoods, however, her greatest joy was her time spent with her family.
