Adelina (Addie) Guaschino passed away peacefully on Friday, July 29, 2022. Born in New York City on October 12, 1920, Addie was married to Louis D. Guaschino and resided in Glastonbury, CT for most of her life. Addie leaves two children, a daughter Andrea Sheptoff and her husband Mark of Marlborough, CT and Wellington, FL and a son, Paul Guaschino and his wife Maria of Manchester, CT. She was the proud grandmother of Jean Sheptoff and her husband Cory Hardy, Adam Guaschino, and Nina Camarota and her husband Nicholas. Addie leaves two great grandchildren, Ava and Isabella Camarota. Also left to grieve, a very special cousin Emma Mulazzi and her daughter Lynn and son Steven, cousins John and Pat Scagliotti and family, and her best friend Arlene Lazinsk and family.
Addie worked at Connecticut Mutual Insurance Company before her children were born. She was later employed by the Glastonbury Bank and Trust Company, retiring at age 78 as a Vice President. Her 100th drive-by birthday party was held on “Addie Lane” at TB Bank on Main Street in Glastonbury which was formerly GB&T. Addie was beloved by her GB&T co-workers and customers forming many lasting friendships. During this time she was also involved in various Glastonbury community projects, such as Trees on Main, and was active in the Green Cemetery Association. She also worked and raised money for Protectors of Animals. Addie was the recipient of many awards, such as Glastonbury Woman of the Year.
One of Addie’s greatest pleasures was attending horse shows to watch her granddaughter Jean in various competitions. She also loved to play card games with family and was very competitive. Addie enjoyed travelling, especially to Maine, Florida, and Bermuda. She also loved baseball and was an avid New York Yankees fan. Her family and friends laughed when Addie learned her granddaughter Jean was marrying a Red Sox fan.
The funeral service and burial will be private. In lieu of flowers, donations in Addie’s memory may be made to Fidelco Guide Dog Foundation, 103 Vision Way, Bloomfield, CT 06002, Doctors Without Borders, or any non-profit animal welfare organization.
