Marilyn Quadracci Fabry, 60, a resident of Los Alamos, went home to be with our Lord Aug. 31, 2013, following a battle with cancer.
She was born on June 13, 1953 to Art and Laura Quadracci in McAlester, Okla. She was an only child - God bless them. She grew up in McAlester and attended Oklahoma State University (Go Pokes!) where she received a bachelor's degree in mathematics. She taught in Oklahoma, Texas and New Mexico; the longest in New Mexico at Los Alamos High School for close to 20 years.
She was preceded in death by her parents; husband David Fabry; father-in-law Frank Fabry and numerous grandparents.
Mrs. Fabry is survived by her children Stephanie Pittman and Andrew Fabry; grandchildren Christopher and Alexandra (she wanted more but her son told her not to be greedy) and ex-son-in-law that she still claims, Jim Pittman; daughter-in-law Sarah McQuate; stepmother Debbie Quadracci; mother-in-law Frances Fabry; cousins that were more like siblings, Eula Campbell and Ralph Lancaster and many other cousins and countless friends.
She enjoyed drawing, cross stitching, baking, decorating cakes, watching movies and teaching. At different times in her life, she played the piano at church. Playing piano was lifelong comfort and her therapy. Teaching was God's call for her. Her students were her babies and she loves each of them forever.
A memorial service will be at 10 a.m. Sept. 7, 2013 at the White Rock Baptist Church. In lieu of flowers, Marilyn would like donations to be made to the White Rock Baptist Church Youth Group or your church Youth Group.
Marilyn requested that people attending the service wear orange if they have it. The family of Marilyn Quadracci Fabry has entrusted their loved one to DeVargas Funeral Home and Crematory of the Española Valley. 662-2400, devargasfuneral.com.
