Rosemarie (Buccieri) Machuga

January 26, 1933 — November 9, 2022

Poland

Rosemarie Machuga, 89, passed away at her home with her family at her side, Wednesday afternoon, November 9, 2022.

Rosemarie was born January 26, 1933, in Youngstown, Ohio, a daughter of Peter and Rose Italiano Buccieri.

A graduate of East High School, Class of 1951, Rosemarie went on to receive her Bachelor of Science Degree in Education from Youngstown College. In college, Rosemarie was active in the Newman Center and was named Mardi Gras Queen of her class. Rosemarie taught at Williamson Elementary School in Youngstown until her marriage to her college sweetheart, Harry Machuga, on June 25, 1955, at Immaculate Conception Church in Youngstown.

A charter member of St. Luke Catholic Church, Rosemarie was active in the Altar and Rosary Society, church festivals, and baking kolachi for Christmas and Easter. When her children attended St. Luke School, Rosemarie volunteered her time for school functions and outings.

Rosemarie's life was centered around her family. She loved cooking and baking, hosting dinners especially on Sundays, and celebrating the holidays at her home. She passionately believed in the importance of family traditions that were dear to her and took pride in passing them on to her children and grandchildren.

She leaves to carry on her memory, her husband of 67 years, Harry Machuga; two daughters, Sharon (Rick Miller) Machuga of Youngstown, Ohio and Loraine (Michael) Mangine of Lowellville, Ohio; three sons, Deacon Mark (Julie) Machuga of Cincinnati, Ohio, Brian (Pamela) Machuga of Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, and Darren (Patti) Machuga of Canfield, Ohio; sister-in-law, Anna Buccieri of Indianapolis, Indiana; eight grandchildren, Jonathan (Kristin) Machuga, Jennifer (Matt) Reinkemeyer, Michael (Gina) Mangine, Maria Mangine, Brianna (Trevor) Frank, David Machuga, Joseph Machuga, and Vincent Machuga; four great-grandchildren, Isabelle, Isaac, Ria, and Aidan Reinkemeyer; brother-in-law, Stephen (Janice) Machuga of Youngstown, Ohio; and sister-in-law, Maryann (Ron) Porter of Destin, Florida.

In addition to her parents, Rosemarie was preceded in death by her brothers, Frank and Robert Buccieri; sister-in-law, Bertha deVarennes; and brother-in-law, George Machuga.
