Debby Guglielmetti of Kennett Square Debby (Sticinski) Guglielmetti, 55, of Kennett Square, beloved wife and mother, passed away peacefully at home on April 23, 2012, surrounded by her loving family. Debby was born July 8, 1956, in Jersey Shore, Pennsylvania, and graduated from Newark High School in 1975. She attended Goldey Beacom College, and began her career at DuPont, where she worked for fourteen years and where she met her husband, John Guglielmetti. She later started and ran a successful business, Typing Express, which allowed her to work from home and dedicate her time to her children. More recently, in addition to her home business, she worked as an administrative assistant at Melton Architects and Sanco Construction. Debby expressed her devotion to her family and community as an enthusiastic volunteer, first as a committed Troop Leader for Brownies and Girl Scouts, and later as Chair of the Prom Committee at Unionville High School. In addition, she was an active board member of the Willowdale Crossing Civic Association, and most recently served as a volunteer at the Kennett Area Senior Center. Debby's enthusiasm and tireless energy led her to participate in many hobbies. She loved sports, and in her early days excelled in softball, racquetball and volleyball. She was an avid bingo fan, playing every Friday at the Senior Center, enjoyed ballroom dancing, and game nights with friends. Many will remember Debby's strength and indomitable spirit, which were evident even as she battled the late stages of lung cancer. She is an inspiration to her friends and family, and will always be remembered for her courage and commitment. Debby is survived by her husband of 29 years, John Guglielmetti; daughter, Mandy Lazisky and husband Ryan Lazisky; son, Michael Guglielmetti; mother, Irene Sticinski; brothers, Don Sticinski and wife Debbie, Ron Sticinski and wife Cookie, Leo Sticinski and wife Bippy and Kris Sticinski and wife Denise; as well as many loving nieces and nephews. She will also be greatly missed by the family dogs. Debby was predeceased by her father, Leo Sticinski. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations be made to the Kennett Area Senior Center, 427 South Walnut Street, Kennett Square, PA 19348. Services and burial will be private.
