Among Marie’s adventures in her retirement was an annual winter stay in Luquillo, Puerto Rico, and trips to Ireland, France, England, Hungary, Austria, British Columbia and Alaska. Marie’s legacy to all is a love of family and friends that knew no conditions or bounds. She brought a deep joy, positive spirit, and never-ending optimism that fed her family and an ever-widening circle of friends over nine well-lived decades of life. She is predeceased by husband Ernest Paul Guzmich(1994), parents Thomas Francis Tighe and Marie G Tighe (nee Coyne), brothers Thomas J and Francis T Tighe, sisters Marguerite A Tighe, Anne M Strank, nephew Kevin J Tighe and beloved aunt, Winifred Coyne.
