Marietta (Gatti) Guidone
NORTH CANAAN — On Monday April 4, 2022, Marietta (Gatti) Guidone, passed away after a long courageous battle with dementia at the age of 73. Marietta was born May 24, 1948, in Great Barrington and spent many years living in and visiting the small town she loved, Canaan.
She received her Master of Education from Southern Connecticut State University and spent many years teaching at both Benjamin Franklin School and Lincoln Middle School, in Meriden. Teaching was her passion, which was evident by the number of times she was invited to the favorite teacher dinner for high school seniors each year. She was an amazing baker, chef, gardener, knitter, quilter, and whistler of tunes.
She was preceded by her loving parents, Allyn and Eleanor Gatti. She is survived by her loving partner of over thirty years, Edward Grickis. She is also survived by her eldest son, Noel Guidone, his daughter Alexandra Guidone, her youngest son, Keith Guidone and his wife Jamie and their foster children. She also leaves behind her brother Dave Gatti and his wife Connie. Lastly, she is survived by her beautiful circle of lifelong friends Kathy Sassu, Joan Boucher, Noreen Bordeau and Rose Parkin and so many others.
A special thanks to her angel caretakers Sandra, Gina, Lisa, and Chrystal that gave her so many wonderful and happy years at home.
The family has requested remembrances to be made in the form of contributions to The Dementia Society of America.
