Rose S. Guider, age 88, of Shelton, wife of the late Vincent Guider, died peacefully on January 27, 2014 at Griffin Hospital.

Born in Ansonia on April 6, 1925, she was the daughter of the late Stephen and Christina Kozak Sambol.

She was predeceased by a daughter, Christine M. King and a sister, Elizabeth Sambol. Springtime interment will take place in Pine Grove Cemetery, Ansonia.
