Marian A. LoGalbo, 84, of New Hartford, passed away peacefully at home on Wednesday, December 31, 2014, with her daughter Linda by her side. She was born July 9, 1930, in Tug Hill and received her education there. In 1947, in Utica, she married Anthony LoGalbo, a blessed union of 53 years. Together they owned and operated L & M Restaurant in Utica. After their retirement they moved to Florida. Mrs. LoGalbo returned to the area after the passing of her husband in 2000. Marian was a gentle soul who lived her life quietly and with dignity. She raised four children, but never raised her voice. She is survived by her three children, Linda Garcia of New Hartford, with whom she resided, Diane LoGalbo-Stratton of Palm Bay, FL and Dominick LoGalbo of New Hartford; five grandchildren, John and Shonna Garcia of SC, James and Diana Garcia of Sherrill, Laura and John Ungaro of SC, Donna and James Salisbury of KY and Michael LoGalbo of FL; ten great grandchildren; and two great-great grandchildren. Marian was blessed with two very special friends, with their daily phone calls, card games and outings, Rita Esposito and Paula Torchia. She was predeceased by her daughter, Elizabeth "Betty" LoGalbo; and her son-in-law, Rosario "Jim" Garcia. A memorial Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Monday evening at 5:00 at St. Anthony & St. Agnes Church, Utica. Per Marian's wishes there will be no calling hours, however the family will receive visitors at the conclusion of the Mass. Interment alongside her husband will be in The Florida National Cemetery, Bushnell, FL. The family wishes to extend a special thank you to Dr. Lance Brownstein and his nurse, Jody, for the many years of care they provided to Marian. They would also like to thank Dr. Chris Max and Dr. Chip Brindisi, for treating her with great warmth and compassion. Also Dr. Cynthia Parlato, for her many acts of kindness, including one particular Sunday after services, bringing her daffodils from her garden. To Hospice & Palliative Care, a very important organization, that made Marian's end of life journey comfortable and peaceful, especially noting, Irene, Mary Ellen and Ann. A very special thank you is also extended to Patricia Terry for kindness shown Marian, which made her so happy by making her so pretty by curling and cutting her hair. Arrangements are with the Bentz Funeral Service, Inc., Utica/New Hartford.
