Guldenstern, Anne (Matteo) Port Jeff Station, L.I.

Anne M. (Matteo) Guldenstern, 57, passed away peacefully on May 14, 2020, surrounded by her much loved and dedicated family. Anne was born on June 11, 1962 to Florence (Santulli) and the late Richard Matteo. She graduated in 1980 from Bishop Maginn High School in Albany and married her childhood friend and sweetheart, Michael Guldenstern, on February 4, 1988. Anne was employed by Feldman Lumber as a Credit Manager up until her illness no longer allowed her to continue working. Anne loved her job and was the best of the best at it. The employees at Feldman Lumber were not only her co-workers, but her friends.

Anne and Mike moved to Port Jeff Station in 2000, providing a beautiful and welcoming home for their family. Anne’s “boys” were most important and always her utmost priority.

Anne was the devoted and loving wife of Michael Guldenstern, the beloved and doting mother to Brian (Liz) Cellery, Joshua Cellery, and Eric (Suzie Lee) Guldenstern, and the proud and loving Meena to Liam and Logan Cellery. She was the adored and cherished sister, and part of the “Magnificent 7”, to Ginny (late Michael) McDonough, Michael (Dawn) Matteo, Cathy (Dan) Musella, Joseph (Mary Ellen) Matteo, Christine (William) Guldenstern, and Patty (Michael) Hoffman. She is also survived by her mother-in-law Patricia Soncini and her sisters-in-law Anna Sheets and Terry Menges. She was the much-loved aunt of 19 nieces and nephews, along with 15 great nieces and nephews. Anne also leaves behind numerous aunts, uncles and cousins in the Abbate, Santulli and Moreen families. She will also be missed by her dear friends Shari and Robin Otero, Lynn and Mike Goyer, and her dogs, Bella and Zoey. Anne treasured butterflies and dragonflies and enjoyed reading, watching movies, shopping, and visiting casinos. But to Anne, family was everything. She had an unbreakable spirit and was a beautiful individual. Anne could be relied on for support, advice and guidance. She always put others first and would do anything for anyone. Simply put, Anne had a heart of gold and is leaving a huge void. She fought a long 13-month battle against cancer, never complaining and always worrying about others. Heaven just gained another angel.

Anne’s husband and sons would like to thank her family, numerous friends, and neighbors for their generous help and outpouring support throughout her illness.

To our dear sister - You will be missed more than words could ever say. You’re leaving a huge void in our family, but you’re also leaving us with a lifetime of wonderful memories, beginning on Park Avenue, as we all grew together as a family. Riding tricycles, then bicycles, to jump roping, playing babies, ledgies, kickball, hop scotch, to swimming at St. Mary’s, All our holidays together: Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas, etc. Memories from Ridgefield Park, VI, Bishop Maginn, National Little League (French fries and shoe string licorice), ice skating, sleigh riding down Allen’s hill, football games at Bleeker Stadium. Then to Orlando Avenue where all the holiday traditions continued. Pool parties, bridal showers, baby showers, baptisms, and then the joy of raising our kids together. And the memories don’t stop there. They keep going and going. We will cherish every memory, moment and milestone we all had together. Thank you for all the joy and laughter you brought to our family. We love you and until we meet again, Rest In Peace our beloved sister. 💜 Ginny, Mike , Cathy, Joe, 🦋, Chris, and Patty 💜

To Florence and the whole Matteo crew...... I am so sorry about Anne. As far back as 1978 until a few years ago, I heard all about the Matteo kids from Florence. Some of the stories made me laugh, cry or just shake my head but by far the Anne stories were the most memorable. I always marveled at the tales of your very close and loving family. May Anne’s memory always be a blessing and a reminder of your beautiful family.
Much love,
