Maryellen Guadagnino (née Whelan) was born on April 30, 1940 in Pasadena, California. She was born to James Whelan of Ireland and Pauline Phillips, she had two brothers Dennis and John. On January 8, 1966, she was wed to Chris Guadagnino and had two daughters Gina and Lisa. She retired from Quest Diagnostics after working in Client Services for 24 years. She was proud to serve in Stevens Ministry at Saint Killian Parish.
She was often referred to as Meg by her friends and truly valued those relationships. She was a loving and protective mother often referring to her kids as her “cubs”. She was extremely proud of her family and after 54 years was still in love with her “Italian Stallion “. She will be missed by many and will create a void felt by her absence. Our prayer is that Maryellen is in the arms of the Lord and her beloved family whom she so missed. The family is requesting that in lieu of flowers, a donation be made to the elephant sanctuary that was dear to her heart. https://www.elephants.com/elephants.
Memorial Mass will be at 10:00 AM on Thursday, March 12th at Santiago de Compostela Catholic Church with a reception to follow in the parish hall. Please RSVP to email@example.com.
