Lores Louise (Lillia) Guagenti (nee Rossi) of Poplar Grove, IL, aged 97, died peacefully on February 6, 2018 surrounded by her children in Phoenix, AZ. Lores was born November 29, 1920, in Bologna, Italy, and was the daughter of Augusto and Debora Rossi.
In 1942 Lores married the love of her life, Samuel Guagenti, and they were married for 62 years. Lores worked for many years at M & M Mars Candy Company in Chicago before her retirement. Lores lived life to the fullest. Though diminutive in stature, she was large at heart. She lived for her family. She took joy in other’s joys. Those who met her fell in love with her. Her quick smile, her genuine interest in people, her joy of life and fierce stamina made her many people’s role model. She was “everyone’s Mom”. Lores was preceded in death by her parents, her brother Rome Rossi, and her husband, Samuel Guagenti. She is survived by her children, Ron (and Barbara) Guagenti, Cheryl (and the late Ron) Nielsen, and Renee (and Artie) Cybul, 8 grandchildren, 20 great-grandchildren, several nieces, nephews, great-nieces, and great-nephews.
