Obituary of Rose Guidi Weaver
Our beloved Mom, Grammie, Nonie, sister and aunt has decided to go on a new adventure. Rose Guidi Weaver left on Friday, March 1, 2019 with her daughters by her side. She was born in Ivoryton on September 7, 1923, the daughter of Joseph and Anna Guidi. Rose graduated from Pratt High School in 1942. Rose married her one and only love, Roy Weaver, on March 13, 1943. Together they operated the Ivoryton Playhouse Restaurant for 5 years. Her apple pie was a favorite to actors and actresses such as Joan Blondell, Allen Ludden, Audie Murphy, Tallulah Bankhead and many others. In 1965 they moved to Old Lyme and built their dream home on the Black Hall River. Rose worked as a foreman at Cramer’s until her retirement in 1985. She sold her home and moved to Lyme with her daughter. Rose was predeceased by her husband Roy, who died in 1972, and her daughter, Cindy, who died in 1975, her beloved sister Alma, her brother Joe, her parents and her nephews Mike Weaver and Tom Weaver. Rose is survived by her daughter, Carol (Ned) Libby of Deep River and her daughter Cheryl (Hunter) Ward (with whom she made her home with for over 30 years) of Lyme.

Rose also leaves many nieces and nephews. Rose opened her home to many cadets from the Coast Guard Academy, giving them a place to call home, relax and have a homecooked meal. At her request there will be no calling hours. A graveside service will be held at Duck River Cemetery on McCurdy Road in Old Lyme on Thursday, March 7th at 11:00AM. In lieu of flowers, please consider donating in Rose’s name to the Lyme Ambulance Association, PO Box 911, Hadlyme, CT 06439.
