Obituary for Lina A. Guido (Tenuta)
Lina A. Guido, 89, of Kenosha, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, March 13, 2018, at her residence.
Born on July 3, 1928, in Marano Principato, a province of Cosenza, Italy, she was the daughter of the late Alessandro and Filomena (Ruffolo) Tenuta.
On October 23, 1949, she married Francesco “Frank” Guido in Italy. In 1950, they moved to Argentina, and then made their home in Kenosha in 1954. He preceded her in death on May 27, 1978.
During her lifetime, she worked part time at various jobs including Paielli's Bakery.
Lina was a member of Our Lady of Mount Carmel Catholic Church. Her family and faith were the center of her life. Cooking and baking for those she loved was what brought her the most joy.

She is further survived by many loving nieces, nephews, and cousins.
She was preceded in death by a sister, Aide (Domenico) Ritacca; two brothers, Umile and Pietro (Rita) Tenuta; and in-laws, Carolina (Benedetto) Savaglio, Saveria (Giacomo) Ruffolo, Cesare Guido, Florinda (Pasquale) Chiappetta, and Emilio Guido.
