Marion Rose Gabuzzi, who formerly worked at Budlong School, was laid to rest with a service at St. Peter Church in Skokie last week.
Gabuzzi is remembered at Budlong as a wonderful person who was loved by the children. She started at Budlong in 1983. She retired or left sometime in 1997 or 1998.
“She was a wonderful person,” Principal Al Solomon said. “All the children loved her.”
“She’ll be remembered by the staff,” Solomon said. Gabuzzi was invited to attend an annual staff event. Solomon remembered her attending through 2005. However she suffered from some medical issues after that and the event became too much, he said.
Solomon said he learned of her passing from staff.
“She checked on the children,” he said, “she was a great woman.”
