Adeline (Guerri) Tedesko, age 95, passed away on January 12, 2019. She was born in New Castle, Wyoming on July 26, 1923. She lived in Florence and Rockvale during her young life where she was raised by her mother, Virginia, and step-father, Joseph Guerri.
She attended Rockvale School where she was educated through the 8th grade. She obtained a GED high school diploma later in life. She worked at Crow Drug Store in Florence during World War II.
On May 28, 1946 at St. Benedict's Catholic Church in Florence, she married Frank Wm. (Bill) Tedesko. They celebrated their 66th anniversary in 2012 before Bill passed away on February 6, 2013.
After their marriage, she had lived on the family farm in Brewster for 32 years where she grew vegetables for sale and managed the farm before moving to Florence in 1978. She lived in the Florence area for the majority of her life and was a member of St. Benedict's Church for more than 80 years.
In earlier years she was an active member of the Brewster Grade School Parent Teacher Association, Florence Pioneer Day Board, and Price Pioneer Museum Board. In 1985, Bill and Addie were honored as Pioneer Day King and Queen.
Addie's hobbies included sewing, arts and crafts, dancing, and bowling on a women's league at Fremont Lanes. She was a 4-H sewing instructor and, for many years, she free-hand painted Christmas scenes on the windows of the Florence Safeway Store. She loved living in Colorado and enjoyed spending time outdoors camping, fishing and hunting in the mountains with her husband, Bill, and many family members.
Addie is survived by her daughter and son-in-law, Vicky and Dan Pretti of Colorado Springs; her grandson and granddaughter-in-law, Dennis and Carrie Pretti; and her great-granddaughter, Danika, of Boise, ID; sister-in-law, Josie Fontana; and brother-in-laws, Albert Knight and Jerry Owen; and generations of nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Bill; her brothers and sisters: Arthur Fontana Sr., Robert Fontana, Josephine Owen, Esther Knight, and Charles Guerri; a niece and two nephews.
She will be dearly missed and remembered forever.

In lieu of flowers memorial contributions can be made to St. Benedict's Church or The Florence Pioneer Day Association % Virginia Rankin, Florence, Colorado
