WEST BROOKFIELD- Anita G.(Medeiros) Guzik,76, died at home on October 15,2017 of Alzheimer's Disease.
Anita was mother, grandmother, lover of nature, especially wildflowers and the ocean. She had a green thumb and kept whimsical garden vignettes about her yard. Before her illness Anita was an avid reader and a maven of crossword puzzles. Always a quick wit, Anita was engaging, humorous, down to earth, stylish, and understated.
Anita was born in New Bedford,MA on March 31, 1941 and spent her childhood on Cape Cod as well as West Brookfield. She was the daughter of Abel and Miriam Medeiros and sister of James Medeiros and Victoria Little. She graduated from Warren High School in 1958. Her married years were spent in Warren where she and her late former husband, Robert Guzik raised three children, Susan, Judy, and Jim. Anita found her greatest joy as grandmother to Mary, Jeffery, Colleen, and Xyan. As Grammy she treasured her time reading with them, watching sunsets together, and making up their favorite dinners.
Thank you to her personal caregivers, Crystal, Sabrina, Kelly, Sue and Heidi who tended to her as she endured the devastation of Alzheimer's Disease with humility and dignity.
