Obituary for Rachel Carmen Guadagni

Rachel Carmen Guadagni of Commerce Township was born April 2, 1936 in Alvito, Italy to Angelo Domenico and Clementina (nee: Iacabone) Tata. She died June 11, 2020 at the age of 84.

Mrs. Guadagni is the beloved wife of 63 years to Dominic Guadagni. Loving mother of Judy (the late Garry) Moore, Dina (Jamie) Ascenzo, Susie (Pat) Fennelly and Renee (Michael) Hosley. Grandmother of Jon (Jessica), Rick (Sarah), Tina (Michael), Tony, Danielle (Kevin), Justin (Kelly), Stephanie, Jodi, Nikki (Phil) and Joey. Also 14 great grandchildren. Preceded in death by her brothers Henry (Helen) Tata and Pete Tata.
She is also survived by numerous nieces, nephews, extended family members and friends.

Rachel was the love of Dominic's life for 63 years.  Together they raised four daughters and created a lifetime of wonderful family memories, including dancing the Half Time at many weddings, parties and evening events.

Rachel was the matriarch of a huge, loving and beautiful family. Most people would say they couldn't say Rachel's name without a smile on their face and a heartfelt story to tell. Her grandchildren enjoyed her relaxing back rubs until they fell asleep.  We believe that she made the world a brighter and better place just by being in it.

From all of us to you mom, grandma and Nonna, "We love you, we love you, we love you!”
