Maryrose Santa-Buscemi

August 13, 1929 ~ May 27, 2022 (age 92)


Maryrose Santa-Buscemi: during the late 1940's and throughout the 1950's Maryrose was a popular hair stylist working in some of the finest salons in downtown Chicago. A devoted mother, she decided to put her successful career on hold to raise her only child, her daughter Constance Buscemi. She returned to her chosen profession by continuing to style hair for select special occasions such as weddings and for family and friend. 

Maryrose was an avid reader, and she enjoyed reading the entire newspaper, minus the sports section, each day with her breakfast. She like collecting recipes and went to become a great cook. She loved pets and had quite a few throughout her life. Maryrose also loved having plants and flowers in her house and took great care to keep them blooming and beautiful year-round. She enjoyed art museums and the theater and sitting outside on warm nights chatting with neighbors. 

Maryrose was the loving daughter of the late Bennie and Mary (nee Parilla) Santa, and the fond sister of the late Anthony "Blackie the Barber" Santa. Maryrose is survived by her daughter Constance Buscemi. 

Interment at Queen of Heaven Cemetery. All Service are Private.
