Fabrizio, Rehoboth hostess Louise Ryan Fabrizio, 79, a fourth generation Washingtonian and summer resident of Rehoboth Beach for the past 55 years, died of cancer Wednesday, April 19, 1995 at her home in Washington, D.C. Mrs. Fabrizio, an avid gardener, had been a founder and president of the "Hoe and Hope" garden club. "Her gardening skills were personified at her home on Silver Lake," said friend Teresa Weber of Rehoboth Beach. "She was the hostess personified - overseeing every last detail, and quite a cook. Her talent for entertaining was un- surpassed and everyone looked forward to visiting her. Louise made even the most casual gather- ing a special occasion." She was an active volunteer at the Kiwanis Club Crippled Chil- dren's Clinic and also volunteered for the Crippled Children's Soci- ety. She was very active at St. Ed- mond's Catholic Church in Re- hoboth Beach. She was a member of the Con- g ressional Country Club and the Rehoboth Beach Country Club. Antiques were another avocation, "and you could find her cruising Sussex County In her station wag- on looking for auctions and an- tique stores," Weber noted. Known for her understated ele- gance, black hair sleeked back in her signature knot, Mrs. Fabrizio and her husband of 56 years, Dr. Francis J. Fabrizio, U.S. Navy, Ret., were mainstays at the Hen- lopen Hotel during its heyday in the 1950s and 1960s. Dr. Fabrizio and his brother, Michael Fabrizio, owned this centerpiece of resort society. Noting Mrs. Fabrizio's devotion to her husband, children and grandchildren, another Re- hoboth Beach friend, Billie Shields, said "she was a wonder- ful neighbor and rooted for evei'y- body and we'll miss her dearly. ' She was in the background of everything Breezy [her husband] did. Weber added that "Louise al- ways had time and a kind word for everyone and was anxious to hear the news of the young people." Beside her husband, Mrs. Fab- rizio is survived by two children, Carol Ann Knoll and Francis J. Fabrizio Jr., both of Washington, D.C. and Rehoboth Beach; a brother, Joseph Ryan of Boise, April 21 - April 27, 1995 Idalao; two sisters, Margaret Bur- ton of Washington, D.C.; and Marie Malone of Alexandria, Va.
