Marcia Guthridge

Long time Hyde Park resident Marcia Guthridge died on March14, 2017.   She received a doctorate in English from the University of Chicago, and subsequently taught at the Blue Gargoyle and Harold Washington College.  She published a number of well-received short stories.  She is survived by her son Bart Gibbons and his wife, Huyen Nguyen, grandson Gus Gibbons, her son Max Gibbons and his wife, Andria Cantu, her daughter Ariel Gibbons, and her husband, Cary Sabados, and granddaughter Daphne Sabados. She is also survived by her sister Laurel Young, and her husband, Todd Young.  No public memorial service is planned.  In lieu of flowers, her family suggests donations to Learning Ally, formerly Reading for the Blind, in recognition of Ms. Guthridge’s more than three decades of service to that organization.
