Margaret “Peg” Carol Celento Wall Guinnip, former Alma NY Town Clerk


A resident of Spencerport, NY, Peg passed on August 19, 2022, following a two-year battle with cancer. She was born June 28, 1943 in Rochester, NY. Peg went to be with God, her husband, David W Guinnip; and her parents, Frank J. Celento and Mary A. Barone Celento Wall (Gareth Neil Wall). Survived by her loving children David W (Christian) Maier, Kim M (Steve) Burrell, Kelly M Maier, Dawn W (Jason) Trask; brother John Gareth (Donna) Wall. She will be missed by her grandchildren, Josh, Aaron, Jeffrey, Danielle, Casey, Meghan, and Zachary; nieces and nephews, sisters-in-law, brothers-in-law, dear friends, and her Ogden Garden family and staff.

She was a graduate of Nazareth Academy and attended Philadelphia Academy of Fine Arts. She went on to work at Kodak, was Alma’s Town Clerk for nearly 20 years, and a substitute teacher aide. She was also a devoted volunteer firefighter/EMT with the Alma Fire Department and volunteered in the classroom.

She was passionate about the holidays and celebrations, drawing and painting, car racing, the Buffalo Bills, attending her grandchildren’s events, silk flower arranging, her plants, and being in the sun. When asked about her favorite vacation, she said, without hesitation, “Las Vegas, Baby!!!”

A future immediate family gathering will take place where Peg and Dave will be joined in Alma, New York. Per her wishes, there will be no calling hours or funeral. The family has asked that donations be sent to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, 501 St. Jude Place, Memphis, TN 38105 or UR Medicine Hospice, 2180 Empire Blvd. Webster, NY 14580.
