Beverly Guadagnoli Pace
With heavy hearts, we announce the passing of our dear mother, grandmother, sister, and aunt, Beverly Guadagnoli Pace. She peacefully departed from this world on September 25, 2023, in the warm embrace of Grand Junction, Colorado at the remarkable age of 92.
Beverly’s journey began on October 2, 1930, in the picturesque town of Sunnyside, Utah. Born to the loving parents, Antonio “Tony” Guadagnoli and Amelia Russo, she brought immense joy to their lives. She was destined to unite in marriage with James Richard Pace, with whom she shared the beautiful gift of three children, Belle, Ricky, and Tim, before their paths diverged.
Although she has left a void in our hearts, Beverly’s legacy lives on through her beloved children, Bell Antoni Conner, Richard Henry Pace, and James Francis Pace, all residing in Grand Junction. Additionally, she leaves behind four cherished grandchildren, as well as the blessing of numerous great-grandchildren, who will carry her memory in their hearts forevermore. She also leaves behind a host of loving nieces and nephews, who admired and adored her.
Beverly is now reunited with her beloved parents and sisters, Venice B. Golden and Rose Marie Guadagnoli Bowen, in the heavenly realms.
As we gather to honor and celebrate Beverly’s extraordinary life, a Funeral Mass will be held on Monday, October 2, 2023, a significant date that marks what would have been her 93rd birthday. The service will commence at 11:00 a.m. at the Notre Dame de Lourdes Catholic Church in Price, Utah. Prior to the Mass, family and friends are invited to pay their respects during the Vigil Service, which will commence at 10:00 a.m. at the Mitchell Funeral Home (233 East Main Street) in Price. Beverly will be laid to rest in a committal service at the Cliffview Cemetery in Price.
In lieu of flowers, Beverly humbly asked that donations be made to two beloved Catholic Churches: Notre Dame Catholic Church in Price and St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Grand Junction. These contributions will honor her deep devotion to her faith and continue her legacy of kindness and compassion.
May our precious Beverly rest in eternal peace, her gentle spirit forever guiding and comforting us. Though our hearts are heavy with grief, let us find solace in knowing that she has embarked on a new journey in the embrace of God’s eternal love. We will forever cherish her memory and the immeasurable impact she had on our lives.
