Marjorie Gabaccia (née Krauss) died peacefully at home on the 22nd of January 2022.


Born in Manhattan, on August 6, 1928, the daughter of George Anthony Krauss and Fredericka Moersch Krauss,Marge moved to Copake with her brother George Krauss and widowed mother, who married Roy Jennings in 1929.


In 1946, she graduated from Roeliff Jansen Central High School and went on to marry Remo Palmo Gabaccia, raise three daughters and start a family business.


Marge worked as a bookkeeper/financial manager for many years, first in the family business, Krauss & Gabaccia and later at Funk & Gallup GMC earning the nicknames of “Boss” and “The General”.


She loved cooking for family and friends, helping others, knitting, sewing, carpentry, the Brooklyn Dodgers, gardening, birds, photography, and nature, and she was also a devoted Civil War buff.


Marge will be remembered for her zest for living and a phenomenal resilience. She approached every day with optimism, a smile and those twinkling green eyes.


Her greatest loves were her daughters, Linda Gabaccia of Copake Falls, Donna Gabaccia of Toronto, Canada and the late Julie Gabaccia McKenna and her three grandsons Flannery McKenna of Brisbane, Australia; Quinton McKenna of Philadelphia, PA; and Thomas Kozak of Fairfield, CT to whom she was known as Nonnie. She was also the proud great grandmother to Aurelia Kozak of Fairfield, CT and Julian McKenna of Brisbane Australia and loving aunt to many nieces and nephews, the Krauss’s, Laveracks, Shivelys and Buchingers.


A remembrance of her life will be scheduled for this summer. The family welcomes memories (via this website) from those who knew her.
