Marietta E. Guidone

May 24, 1948 ~ April 4, 2022 (age 73)


On Monday April 4, 2022, Marietta Elaine Guidone, passed away after a long courageous battle with dementia at the age of 73. Marietta was born May 24, 1948, in the small town she loved Canaan CT.

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. 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 & Eleanor Gatti. She is survived by her loving partner of over thirty years, Edward Grickis; her eldest son, Noel Guidone, and his daughter Alexandra Guidone and 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.
