Agnes C. Guidi
Agnes Cecelia Guidi passed away peacefully following a brief hospice stay, surrounded by family and close friends.
Agnes was married to the late Marino Guidi, and together they leave behind their adoring children and spouses, Michael/Barbara Guidi, Susan/William Dangora, Richard Guidi, Mark Guidi/Kimberly Kaiser, Karen Moshier, Linda/Peter Wong and Anthony/Tanya Guidi. Agnes also leaves behind her cherished grandchildren, Joy, Mark, James, Aaron, Nicholas, Patrick, Amanda, Maria, Samantha, Sean, Peter and Joshua; as well as her beautiful and irrepressible great-granddaughter, Gabriella.
Agnes lived an exceptional life graced by a large and loving extended family as well as many close friends, all of whom knew her as a warm, loving, accepting, selfless and deeply caring soul who was a brilliant beacon of hope with an incredible sense of humor. Agnes led a life of simplicity and graciousness marked by a deep passion for art, cooking, wine, and above all … children. Agnes not only loved her children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews, but also held a special place in her heart for ALL children — this is reflected in her most cherished roles as parent/aunt/grandparent/great-grandparent, school teacher and baby-sitter extraordinaire. Agnes never tired of spending time with her family and friends, all of whom appreciated her gentle and generous heart, and many of whom helped her tremendously in her own times of need. Agnes’ simple yet profound measure of success in life was the ability to love and be loved — by this definition she was the most successful person we know.
The family wish to thank all family/friends who shared in Agnes’ life well-lived for your love and support. We would particularly like to thank Agnes’ loving sisters, Noreen Staiger and Mary Elizabeth Richie, who were able to provide great comfort to Agnes and the entire family. We also wish to thank from the bottom of our hearts the wonderful and supportive staff at Brightview in Danvers who, with profound compassion helped ensure that Agnes lived her final years in a warm, loving and safe environment. You are part of our family, and we are forever in your debt.
