Doris Marion Carlino

Enjoyed a Long Career in Concert

Doris Marion Carlino, a soprano who enjoyed a long career in concert, radio, and recordings, died peacefully on April 23 at Woodbriar Health Center in Wilmington, Massachusetts. She was 95.

She was born Doris Carpenter in Boston on July 3, 1924, to Orlando Carpenter and Florence (Parsons), both of whom were musical. She grew up in Everett, where she attended the public schools, graduating from Everett High School in 1941. She received her first piano lessons from her mother (age 9) and her first voice lessons from Ruth Streeter. She graduated St. Petersburg Junior College (Florida) in 1943. From there she enrolled as a voice major at the Conservatory of the College of the Pacific (now the University of the Pacific) in Stockton, California, graduating in 1949. Her most important coach and mentor at the Pacific was Felix Underwood, who taught her her first complete operatic roles. From 1951 to 1953, she was on the roster of the San Francisco Opera Company, where she made her solo debut in Puccini’s “Suor Angelica” (September 26, 1952). Her most important mentor at SFOC was Kurt Herbert Adler, chorus master and later general manager.

For 25 years (1961-1986), Ms. Marion lived in Europe, where she performed in opera and concert and made numerous recordings for the radio (a selection of which were compiled in 2000 on the AFKA compact disc, “Affections of My Heart”). In Nuremberg, she studied voice with Adolf Richter (former leading tenor at the Prague Opera House) and coached with Constantine Callinicos (Mario Lanza’s former accompanist). In 1963, Ms. Marion married Bruno Droste (1918-1969), an important composer and conductor of light music in East Germany (about whose life Ms. Marion produced the 2012 documentary “Bruno Droste: an artist’s flight to freedom”). Ms. Marion made recordings for many European radio stations, including Radio Salzburg (Austria), NCRV and AVRO Radio (Holland), Radio Frankfurt and Bavarian Radio (Germany), and BRT and RTB Radio (Belgium). She made three recordings of the “Hermit Songs” by Samuel Barber, who wrote her a letter complimenting her interpretation (1964). In 1964 Ms. Marion moved to Brussels, where she appeared frequently in recital for the French and Flemish radio, and on recordings for radio stations in Amsterdam, Frankfurt, Cologne, Nuremberg, and Berlin, and on television in Luxembourg. She collaborated with many prominent Belgian composers of the day, including Victor Legley and René Bernier (who called her “mon interprète”). Ms. Marion’s most important coaches during her 22 years in Belgium were Frédéric Anspach, Madeleine Farrère, and Lira LeNoir. She had a long musical partnership with British-born pianist Pyta Shrager. In 1976 she married Italian tenor Tonino Carlino.

In 1986, Ms. Marion returned to Everett, Massachusetts, where she continued to perform a wide variety of music, as well as teach and mentor a new generation of musicians.

Ms. Marion was the sister of Margery Warford, Muriel Roos, and the late June Semon; the step-mother of Sabrina Carlino; and the loving aunt of Garry, Jack, Kevin, and Shawn Warford; Donna, Diane, and Judy Roos; Marc, Kim, and Kirk Semon; and many grand-nephews and -nieces.

Marion Gale

The Ultimate Revere Girl

Marion (Gould) Gale of Reading, formerly of Revere, died on April 24 at the age of 84. 

Although her last few years were spent in Reading, Marion was the ultimate Revere Girl, born and raised. Known around town as the “Headband and Hat Lady” – she was the fashion-plate of Revere.   Marion loved Revere and specifically, Revere Beach.  Like an Official Historian, Marion would recount stories of her youth on Revere Beach – “The Nation’s First Public Beach” she would say.  She would pine about days and nights spent at the Revere Beach Amusement Park, Dancing at Wonderland Ballroom, and all the hilarious stories of the time spent with her cousins. She loved Kelly’s Roast Beef and fulfilled a dream of living in a condo on Revere Beach. 

It was at her condo on Revere Beach that her grandchildren will remember her best.  She referred to them as her “Angels,” and when they were babies, they would go to the beach all day and then back to her condo for a “baby powder” bath. 

Her children will tell you they never had alot, but their mother never said  “No” to friends coming over, and somehow she always had a “Magic can of Tuna” that could feed two to ten! 

Marion was the classic Irish-Catholic lassie and always maintained an incredibly strong faith and relationship with God.  We know she is with the Lord and her loving family members in Heaven, and we will miss her until we are all together again.  

Born in Winthrop on October 2, 1935 to the late George and Marion (Callahan) Gould, she was the devoted mother of Dyan Dal Pozzo and her husband, Michael of Reading, Denise Gale of Everett, Debra Gale-Snow and her husband, Jay of Key West FL, David Gale of Revere and Doreen Joly and her husband, Jim of Wakefield; beloved sister of Joanne Biagi of Virginia, Eileen Gavin and her husband, Bill of Winthrop, and the late Grace and Edward Waugh; cherished grandmother of Matt, Melissa, Danielle, Ben, Gabby and Alex.  She is also survived by many loving nieces and nephews.   

In accordance with the CDC’s current restrictions on gatherings due to Covid-19, all services will be held privately. Interment Woodlawn Cemetery.  In lieu of flowers donations may be made to Bear Mountain at Reading, Attention: Employee Fund, 1364 Main St, Reading, MA 01867 or to Winchester Hospital, Attention: Emergency Room Staff or Floor B2 Staff, 41 Highland Ave,  Winchester, MA 01890. For guest book please visit www.buonfiglio.com.
