CARBONVILLE/ST. GEORGE - Our loving mother, nanny, sister, friend and beautiful wife, Sarie Martino Guy passed away peacefully at her home in St. George on Dec. 10, 2012 at the age of 67.
She was born July 24, 1945 in Price to Sam S. and Mary Ann DiMaggio Martino.
Sarie was raised in Price, where she graduated from Carbon High School and the College of Eastern Utah. She married Dan Guy on Sept. 11, 1965. They had two children - Dana & David. They built a house in Carbonville in 1973 and she turned it into a home for her family for the next 37 years. She always tried to make people feel at home in her house, and her children have fond memories of the place filled with family and friends.
Sarie was an accomplished cosmetologist as well as a homemaker, and she spent many years working with her own salon, and with the public. She enjoyed the outdoors, gardening, fishing and especially camping with family on the Gentry Mountain. As health issues made it more difficult to go to the mountains, she spent more time collecting antiques with her husband and special friend Lynn.
With all of her talents and hobbies, her greatest love was for her family. If you knew Sarie for only a few minutes, you also knew how special her children and grandchildren were. There was never a Nanny that loved her grandkids more than this lady!
In her 67 years of life, she touched numerous lives. She will be sorely missed and never forgotten. We look forward to the day we are reunited with her.
She is survived by her husband Dan. W. Guy, St. George; daughter, Dana (Sam) Marrelli, Helper; son, Dave (Rebecca) Guy, Montrose, Colo; grandchildren Lacie and Haley Sheppard, Kylee and Logan Guy; sister, Rosanne (Ronald) Kulow; brother, Sam (Dianne) Martino.
She is preceded in death by her father & mother Sam and Mary Ann Martino.
"God saw you getting tired,
When a cure was not to be. So He wrapped his arms around you, And whispered, "come to me."
You didn't deserve what you went through, So He gave you rest. Gods's garden must be beautiful, He only takes the best. And when I saw you sleeping, So peaceful and free from pain I could not wish you back To suffer that again.
