Marie Gutta – Dominion Post


Agnes Marie Gutta, 88, of Morgantown, peacefully joined her beloved husband in eternal rest surrounded by her family on Saturday, April 20, 2024.

She was born on July 25, 1935, the daughter of the late Edward and Agnes Bartylla Dawson.

Marie received her nursing degree from St. Mary's School of Nursing in Clarksburg and worked for many years at St. Vincent Pallotti Hospital in Morgantown.

Marie married the love of her life, Carmen, on June 3, 1957, and together they raised a beautiful family. She was a devoted wife and valued mother to her two sons, Carmen Jr. and Scott. During their 66 years of marriage, she and Carmen have created a home full of warmth, laughter, and endless love (and coffee). Carmen and Marie were soulmates. Five months after saying goodbye to her beloved husband, Marie's broken heart longed to be reunited with him. Their love story now continues beyond this earthly realm where they are finally together again. Although she was referred to as Marie by many, she was “Mama” to her beloved family. She was the greatest wife, mother and grandmother.

Marie had a green thumb and a knack for growing the most beautiful flowers. She was an avid reader, loved puzzles and was an excellent cook. She could conjure up the most delicious desserts, such as her famous banana cookies. Her love for her family was as comforting as the coffee she made and the cookie she shared with you. She had a fun sense of humor and the best laugh. Your family will capture the fond memories of all the great conversations, laughter and shared memories outside on the patio or at the kitchen table.

Marie is survived by her two sons, Carmen Gutta Jr. (Karen) and Scott Gutta (Shelley); six grandchildren, Kayla Gutta Cook (Zach), Lindsay Gutta Reed (Zach), Carmen A. Gutta III (Jessica), Taylor Gutta Stark (Luke), Bradley Gutta and Caitlin Gutta; and six great-grandchildren, Landon Cook, Peyton Cook, Camryn Cook, Tripp Reed, Rhett Reed and Wyatt Stark. She is also survived by two sisters, Martha Craft and JoAnn Kun; and brother Melvin Dawson.

In addition to her husband, Carmen Gutta Sr., and her parents, Marie was also preceded in death by her infant son, Stephen Gutta. and siblings Pauline Dawson Renforth and James Dawson.

Friends and family will be received on Tuesday, April 23, from 6 to 8 p.m. at St. Francis de Sales Roman Catholic Church, One Guthrie Lane, Morgantown. Visitation will continue at the church on Wednesday, April 24th at 10 a.m. Mass of Christian Burial at 11 a.m. with Msgr. Anthony Cincinnati, STD as celebrant. Burial will be in Lawnwood Cemetery.
