Obituary for Nazarina (Rene) Cobuzzi (Mazzetti)

Nazarina (Rene) Cobuzzi, passed away peacefully on May 30, 2019 at the age of 86. She was born on September 14, 1932 to the late Eugene and Pauline (Longo) Mazzetti in White Plains, NY.
She was an Artist, a Musician, a Soloist, and a Teacher of Art, Music and Spanish for several Westchester and Bronx Catholic Schools including Assumption School and Immaculate Conception School until her retirement. She transferred her love for the arts to many a youngster who to this day have stopped her in the street and introduced themselves as one of her students, thanking her for their introduction to the arts. She was the Choir Director for the Assumption Church and later St. Eugene’s for decades: singing for most weddings and funerals. All while fulfilling her role as the mother of seven.
Nazarina is survived by her seven children, Louis (Aggie) Cobuzzi, Eugene (Linda) Cobuzzi, Joann Khoder, Michael (Christine) Cobuzzi, Paula November, John (Gen) Cobuzzi, and Karen (Terry) Kirby; and her cousin Claudette D’Arco.

Along with her parents she was predeceased by her beloved husband of 67 years, Alphonse Cobuzzi.

Rene and I became close friends during the time I cared for her at Rosary Hill Home. The two most important things in her life were her faith and her family. She loved the Lord and she loved her family. She was a devoted wife, mother, grand mother and great
grand mother. She always thought of others, often times offering a word a encouragement, even if she was having a difficult day. I will miss her very much. I wish to express my sincere condolences to her entire family. Please know of my prayers for you and for Rene.
With sympathy,
Sr. Teresa Marie, OP

I had the fortuitous opportunity to see Rene this year, sadly at her dearly beloved Al’s wake. She was radiant, elegant, stoic and as always, gracious. We spoke for a while, our conversation centered around the exemplary Cobuzzi Dynasty. I left the funeral home that day with a sense Rene was at peace with Al’s passing as she knew in her heart of hearts they would soon be together again. I can’t explain this sensation...difficult to put into words, but it was so beautiful. May God bless her soul and May she be at rest alongside those she loved and lost, especially her dearest Al. Heaven IS indeed a BETTER place now! 💜💜💜💜💜
