Read more about the life story of Edith and share your memory.
Edith was born to Antonio and Carmelinda Guccione on September 26, 1939 in Gesuiti, Calabria, Italy. She left Italy accompanied by her father and Uncle Petro Guccione. Both families were on their first steps of relocating to America. She married Frank Cicerelli at Saint Joseph Catholic Church, in Salida, on August 4, 1956. They succeeded in achieving 67 years of matrimony.
Edith passed after a short Hospital stay on July 19, 2023. She died peacefully in her sleep. Edith was primarily a homemaker but washed and starch ironed the linens used on the altar of St Joseph Church. She did this for 25 years. Occasionally, she did ironing for several individual families. She was blessed with great culinary skills and could turn out a scrumptious Italian meal in no time flat. When it was soppressata or salsiccia making time you would find her sitting behind the stuffing machine. She was a specialist, canning the fruits of the harvest from their garden. There was no greater enjoyment that having a slice of her home made Italian bread, piping hot and smeared with butter. And, if you ever had a meal at her home it always came with a glass or two of homemade "vino".
She is survived by her husband Frank Cicerelli of the family home, siblings; Frank (Judy) Guccione of Canon City; Teresa Giorno, of Salida; Sara Aragon of Espanola, New Mexico, Mary Churich, of Pueblo, Rose (Randy) Guccione Kuretich of Canon City and Lena (Jerry) Leewaye of Salida.
Edith was preceded in death by her parents, Antonio and Carmelinda. Brother Mario.
A Recitation of the Holy Rosary will be held at 10:30 am on Tuesday July 25, 2023 at St. Joseph Catholic Church with a Mass of Christian Burial following, beginning at 11:00 am. Interment will follow services in the Fairview Cemetery. To express condolences, please visit www.lewisandglenn.com
