Deanna Guiseppone

have a memory or condolence to add?

Brother Bernard (Vinny) Marino

September 11, 2020

Dear Gary, Domanie and the entire Guiseppone Family,
My most sincere condolences on the passing of a great woman and a true Mom to me! Mrs. Deanna Guiseppone will be sorely missed but never, ever forgotten!
We had a truly beautiful neighborhood growing up on LamplightLane and Candlestick Court. I had many brothers and sisters on our block and Gary and Domanie were always very dear to me, as my very own! Domanie was the big sister I never had, since we were all Boys at the Marino's!
Mrs. Guiseppone, as we all affectionately called her, growing up, always opened the door to their red house, after every football or stickball game and always offered us all those goodies we never got at home! We loved going to the Guiseppone home since we were always welcome there! And it was truly the "Guiseppone Home", since their home was our home!
I entered the Monastery back in 1994, but never lost contact with Gary. In fact, our childhood friendship grew stronger and deeper over the years. Through email's and phone conversation's Gary and I grew closer as we both drew closer to God! When my brother Mike's son Joseph came down with cancer, we at the Monastery began a novena to St. Joseph for the healing of little Joey. Gary said he wanted to join us. He said, "Br. Bernard, if Joe is healed, I will Convert!" In God's Divine Plan, He chose to take Joey and so I returned home to New York for the Funeral. Gary said to me after the funeral, "I guess Vinny, I have to convert, now!" I said "Why, Gary, God did not heal Joey?" But Gary was far more deep than this Monk and said: No, Vinny, God did heal Joey! He took him to Heaven!" With tears in my eyes, I hugged my Best Friend Gary! It says in the Psalms: "Out of the mouths of babes and sucklings thou hast perfected praise!" Psalm 8:2
What makes someone "great" is not how we begin the race, or even how we run the race of life, but how we end the race! And You, dear Mrs. Guiseppone have finished gloriously! May you rest in Peace!

For nearly 50 years I was so very privileged to have a forever friend in Deanna. We first met when I was 19 and, simply put, she was extraordinarily instrumental in shaping my life. She was wise beyond her years with a great moral compass.
She was not only beautiful but golden throughout. She possessed a certain flair, a style, a code for Good living. During so many of our late night chats, she would always make me see my world a bit clearer and a lot brighter. She inspired confidence in me and gave the best advice, always!
Deanna was patient, kind, helpful and good natured to the core. She was spontaneously and outrageously comical at times. Her eyes and smile spoke volumes. She had a contagious laugh... which I can still hear clearly.
Deanna loved with all her heart. She knew what was important. She cherished her two children and their families. It was clear, they were her reason to live and breathe. Deanna worked hard for everything she had in life... nothing came easy to her, yet no one else could spread more love and joy in one lifetime.
Heaven has certainly gained a loyal servant. I know she has earned her wings and the Lord stands with open arms welcoming her home.
I miss you so, my dear friend, and will always love you. XOXO

I met Deanna many years ago when her granddaughter Emily and my daughter Paige became close friends in grade school. It wasnt long before Melissa and I became close friends too. Over these many many years, the girls are almost 24, I have had the great pleasure of getting to know Deanna too. She was a wonderful woman. She loved her children and grandchildren. I've spent many joyful New Years Eves and Magnolia breakfasts with the Guiseppones and Deanna was always there with us. Gary was a very loving son to her and I'm sure she's smiling down at him and her entire loving family right now. Deanna you will be missed may you rest in peace.

It was always a pleasure to see Deanna. She was warm, kind, and had a beautiful soul.
The tremendous love Deanna shared with her family and her grandchildren was evident to everyone who saw them together. My heart goes out to her family and loved ones. May your beautiful memories be a comfort to you.

When I think back to Deanna, I think of 3 things......
Beauty- her eyes, her hair and her heart. She was always so well styled and beautiful inside and out.
Warmth- she just welcomed you in with her smile. I remember how proud she was to show us her apartment. Pointing out every little detail!
Love- especially for her family but others as well. She never spoke badly about anyone! She just adored her children and grandchildren. The love in her eyes and smile on her face as she looked at you all with such pride. Deanna truly built a beautiful life.

Gary, your dedication to her throughout the years is so touching and beautiful. May you find comfort in the memories.
Love you all!

Dear Missy, Gary, Emily and Madison,
I met dear Deanna with Jane when she lived in Brenton Woods before she lived in the apartment in your house. What a gracious hostess I thought and how attractive.....
In the ensuing years after Jerry died and she lived by you, I spent so many car rides out East with her, Jane and Anthony and what fun we had....so much laughter. Of course dinners and celebrations at Jane’s and Anthony's house with her were also just so much fun and filling. Deanna loved life, her family and friends...and was a role model for keeping up with the styles to the day she passed. I will never forget that flaming redhead.
Your dear, precious memories will help ease your pain in this time of sadness.....
Thoughts of you always,
Bobbi (in North Carolina)

Some of my favorite childhood memories were on lamplight lane with Aunt Deanna and my Mom. (Domanie- Gary & Uncle Jerry too.) From hanging in the kitchen, eating entenmanns coffee cake, polishing nails, baseball games w Gary to endless sleepovers w/ Domanie and cleaning every Saturday morning haha. The list goes on! Rest In Peace Aunt Deanna - Thanks for all the laughs!!! You will be missed, Love you!

We are thankful for every day that we had together. When I look at our pictures now, I see how we were always full of smiles and love, always hugging and holding each other close. Deanna was so funny! Even when she was too tired to talk she would make us laugh with her eyes. She spent so much time with my children, from their first day until her last, and was a big part of shaping who they are. There are so many great conversations that I will never forget, even just last week. She had such a great perspective of things. Simplifying. She loved being near me or talking on the phone because I kept her calm when she was full of anxiety. We were close. She lived in our house for 13 years, but she never meddled. She gave the perfect amount of love and space. The last few years were not ideal but it gave us a lot of quality time spent together, just being together. Time spent talking and playing games and nothing else. I tried to make Deanna happy with food... Chinese, Italian, even Taco Bell. Lots of homemade goodies too. The last few months were hard and she showed us how strong she really is. A fighter till the end. And beautiful. We laughed at the amount of makeup, nailpolish and jewelry she had. All our memories are like pieces of a puzzle. We are so thankful and lucky to feel a love like that. Deanna, I miss you, I love you. I will look for signs (I saw one already) and I will talk to you every day.

Deanna wasn't just a mother in law to me, She was a mom. The kindest women you could ever meet. She always would tell me I was her favorite son in law (I'm her only son in law). Thank you for your wit, humor, kindness and of course, your daughter. Gone from our sight, but never from our heart and forever loved.

M y friend my sister. Our children met and fell in love. Our lives have been filled with beautiful grandchildren, love and laughter. We couldn’t ask for more. Our vacations were the best. Off the Nana and Grammy went sailing on a cruise for 7 days. We laughed so hard I cried. Going for many rides with Anthony eating crabs drinking and feeling so glad we were together. A lifetime goes by Dee and here we are. I will miss you every day of my life you mamashana. God bless you . You are now with Jerry dancing and loving every minute.
