Christine Star Caggiano

GLENVILLE, NY – Christine S. Caggiano of Glenville, NY, and Lewiston, NY, departed this world on Thursday, April 5, 2012, surrounded by her loving family after a courageous year long battle with cancer.  Born on July 16, 1954 in Utica, NY, she was the daughter of Rosemary Fleck (Harold), and the late Edward H. Guild.  For the past twenty five years Chris was employed at Powers and Santola LLC, where she leaves many good friends and co-workers.  Chris’s entire family will forever miss her carefree, easy manner, her quick wit and wonderful sense of humor, and her infectious laughter.

Christine is survived by her loving and devoted husband of thirty one years, Anthony A. Caggiano, her children, Ryan A. Caggiano, Juliana A. (Jordan) Cichy, Danielle N. (Colin Pillivant) Caggiano, and her adoring grandchildren, Brennan, Aven and Liam. She is also survived by her brother, David E. Guild and sisters, Kathleen A. (David) Good, Dawn M. (John) Roberts, Elizabeth J. (Michael) Snyder, Charmaine L. (Daniel) McMahon, Laurie S. (Tim Ryan) Guild, Holly M. (Kirk) Tuttle and Wendy L. (Garrett) Swearingen. She was pre-deceased by a sister, Mary Rose. She is also survived by many nieces and nephews, two great-nieces, and one great-nephew.

In keeping with Chris’s generous and giving nature, she made a final gift of her body to The Albany Medical College Anatomical Gift Program, as well as donating her organs.  In lieu of flowers the family requests that donations be made in her name to the American Cancer Society, or the charity of one’s choice. A memorial service will be held at the convenience of the family. There will be no prior visitation. Online remembrances may be made at .
