Obituary for MaryJane L. (Scamporino) Guzzardi

MaryJane L. Guzzardi (née Scamporino), 90, of Haverhill, passed away on December 10, 2017 surrounded by her family. Born in Haverhill, MA on April 21, 1927, MaryJane was the second of three daughters born to Guido Scamporino and Elisabetta “Alice” (Decristofaro) Scamporino. MaryJane graduated from Haverhill High School in 1946 where, like many of her peers, she served on the War Activities Committee.

Together with her husband and their two sons, MaryJane owned and operated Ralph’s Restaurant for over fifty years. MaryJane had the gift of a green thumb, growing gorgeous azaleas, hydrangeas, and roses. She most enjoyed spending time with her family at their summer home on Cape Cod with daily excursions to the beach, outdoor concerts on Monday evenings, and fulfilling her passion for shopping. Passing down family recipes to her grandchildren filled her with joy, and many hours were spent hand making pasta and traditional Italian Christmas cookies.

MaryJane was predeceased by her husband of sixty-six years, Ralph F. Guzzardi, as well as her son, Robert Guzzardi, and her sister, Lucy Fiorentini.

She is survived by her son William Guzzardi, and daughter Carol Selvaggio; loving grandchildren Michael Selvaggio, Alicia Selvaggio & her husband, Gino, and Amy Selvaggio; Robert, Salvatore, and Dante Guzzardi; a great-grandson; and her sister Rosanne McKee.

At the family’s request, visitation and services were privately held at H.L. Farmer and Sons Bradford Funeral Home, 210 South Main Street. Interment followed in St. Patrick’s Cemetery, Haverhill. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made in MaryJane’s memory to The Jimmy Fund, P.O.
