Alberta G. Alward DelGuidice, 91, of North Haven, passed away peacefully on Aug. 4 at the Connecticut Hospice, Branford. She was the beloved wife of the late Louis E. DelGuidice. Alberta was born in Hartford on Nov. 25, 1927, and was the daughter of the late Harry and Isabelle Hotchkiss Alward.
She worked for Sentry Insurance; in that time she was viewed by her employer, associates, and customers as being consistently “flawless” and having a can-do attitude. After her retirement she worked part-time for the West Haven Community House as an accounts payable and receivable officer. She was a life member of 93rd Bomb Group, Air Force Escape and Evadee Society, and the 8th Air Force Historical Society. She was a devoted member of St. John’s Episcopal Church for more than 45 years. Alberta was a good friend to many, especially her family of the 93rd.
She enjoyed traveling, whether it be on the East Coast or across the pond to England. Alberta also enjoyed reading, knitting, baking cakes, gardening, and growing her beautiful African Violets up to the age of 89. She loved going to and watching on TV the women UConn Huskies. She enjoyed them so much she wouldn’t answer the phone when they were playing!
She was the stepmother of Sandra Comstock, Linda (Lenny) Wishart, Louie (the late Karen) DelGuidice, Vincent (the late Kimberly) DelGuidice, Doreen DelGuidice, and Karen (the late David) Modine. She is also survived by her son-in-law Richard (the late Debra) Dady; 13 grandchildren; and 12 great-grandchildren.
The family would like to give a special thank you to Sophia and Bernedette, her round-the-clock caregivers whom she loved dearly, and the Home Instead Senior Care of Guilford.
A funeral service was held at St. John’s Episcopal Church, 3 Trumbull Place, North Haven, on Aug. 8, followed by a committal service in Beaverdale Memorial Park. There were no visiting hours. Should friends desire, memorial contributions may be made to Boy’s Town, Father Flanagan’s Boy’s Home, 234 Monsky Dr., Boy’s Town, NE 68010, or the 93rd Bomb Group Association, Treasurer: Wally Brown, 717 Pine Brook Dr., Virginia Beach, Va 23462.
