Margery Ann Gordon Cordts, 87, longtime resident of North Guilford, passed away peacefully on June 29 surrounded by her loving family. She was the wife of Harry J. (Corky) Cordts, who predeceased her; sister of Janice G. Teft of Guilford; and mother of William (Jacqueline) Cordts of Boonville, New York, Pamela (David) DeMaio of North Guilford, and Laura Cordts (Shawn Seymour) of Potsdam, New York. She was the grandmother of Mark DeMaio (fiancée Stephanie Hynson) and James DeMaio (fiancée Brittney Tasto), and is also survived by great-grandchildren Anthony (Nicole) Makey, Samantha (John) Frey, and Jacob Makey, and a nephew, Gregory (Susan) Teft.

Marge was born in Guilford on March 13, 1932, daughter of the late W.E. Victor Gordon, and Ruth MacLagan Gordon. She was a 1950 graduate of Guilford High School and earned her associate of science degree in dental hygiene from the University of Bridgeport in 1952. After marrying Corky in 1953, she and her husband lived briefly in North Carolina while he was on active duty in the US Marine Corps, then returned to North Guilford where she lived until recently moving to Evergreen Woods in North Branford.

Marge worked as a dental hygienist in New Haven, and then in the Guilford Schools; later she became the business manager for Corky’s construction company, E.C. Griffiths, Inc.

Marge was a lifelong member and former deacon of the North Guilford Congregational Church, and also volunteered for many years at the Guilford Outdoor Education Center and Connecticut Hospice.

The family would like to thank the staff at Evergreen Woods and Smilow Cancer Center, North Haven, for loving care of Marge during the past year.

Friends are invited to a memorial service on Tuesday, July 9 at 11 a.m. at the North Guilford Congregational Church, 159 Ledge Hill Rd., Guilford. Burial will be held privately. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the Guilford Food Bank, c/o Guilford Social Services, 263 Church St., Guilford, CT 06437. Arrangements in the care of the Guilford Funeral Home, 115 Church St., Guilford, CT 06437. To share a memory or leave a message of condolence, please visit www.guilfordfuneralhome.com.
