Mary Guido aka “Funseeker” of Phoenix, passed away March 6, 2015. She was born Mary Maurizi on March 16, 1932, the daughter of Italian immigrants. She was treasured by her parents and three brothers and grew into both an industrious and beautiful woman in Chicago, Illinois. She married Anthony N. Guido in 1952 and started their family in Maywood, Illinois. Mary and Tony moved out west to Phoenix, AZ in 1958. She raised a boisterous and successful family and built a business with her husband that continues to thrive in Phoenix today. She cultivated a wonderful circle of friends and maintained lifelong relationships that now span generations. Mary was a faithful St. Thomas parishioner for 57 years and was instrumental in the growth and development of their Women’s Sodality, school, and church community. Mary’s legacy continues through her loving family and devoted friends. She is survived by her five children and seven grandchildren. Mary was known for her generous spirit, superb scrabble skills and love of travel. Many will remember her organizing fabulous Fun Nights and hosting elaborate parties. Whether it was a holiday or not, there was always cause for celebration when Mary was around. She will be dearly missed for her positive outlook on life, her sense of humor, the support she was always eager to lend others, and constantly sharing whatever song was currently in her heart.
