Mary Chaney Obituary
Mary Rose Guagenti Chaney - Born December 9, 1920.  Surrounded by her devoted family, Mary passed into Eternity on March 6, 2018 at the young age of 97. Beloved seventh child (of 10) of the late Andrea and Maria (Portanova) Guagenti. She was preceded in death by all of her loving siblings: Frank (Louise), Sr. Philip Anne Guagenti O.S.M., Nicholas (Nathalie), Joseph (Rosemary), Sam (Fay), Frances (Pat) Sciortino, Carmela (Gaetano) Fagiolo, Grace (Sam) Campese, Andrew (Charmenz).

Spirited Great Nana of five: Daniela, Nora, Dominic, Frank and Nalani. Mary was an educated and adventurous firecracker of a woman who traveled the world. Formerly married to the late James Chaney, she single handedly raised their five children. She leaves them with wonderful memories and a treasury of her prolific writings. Her great zest for life was contagious and she is the glue that holds the family together. Alla Famiglia! Our sadness on Earth is cancelled out by the joy of eternal paradise. Cum laude et amore.
