Anita (Lizotte) Marquis, 83, of Bristol, passed away peacefully at home surrounded by her loving family on Friday, August 30, 2019. She is now reunited with her beloved husband of 55 years, Alberie G. Marquis, who predeceased her in 2012.
Anita was born on March 8, 1936, in Baker Brook, New Brunswick, Canada, one of nine children to the late Hector and Léda (Bouchard) Lizotte. She moved to CT from Canada in March 1957, married her soul mate, Alberie, in April 1957 and she worked a number of years at Carling Switch Inc. in West Hartford. Together, Anita and Alberie established a home to start a family and to raise their children. Along with becoming a loving mother, Anita became the best housewife and cared for her home and children while Alberie worked. She was an excellent cook that never thought she was, but everyone felt she was a culinary comfort to her family and friends. She was the true matriarch of her family. Anita was an avid reader and loved to do word puzzles and watch Andy Griffin and all the old shows on the TV Land channel. She was meticulous in her daily life in everything she did; always spit and polished and a stylish, trendy dresser. Anita had beautiful warm-hearted soul, a witty sense of humor, and was always graceful and gracious. A devoted wife, mother, grandmother, friend, confidant, she will be sorely missed by her family and friends leaving them with a legacy of love and kindness.
Anita is survived by her daughter, Nancy Marquis, of Bristol and her son, Daniel Marquis and his wife, Michelle, of Burlington; her only grandson, Michael Marquis, of Burlington; her sisters, Joanne Morneault and Jacqueline Chassé, of Canada; and many, many nieces and nephews and extended family members. In addition to her husband and her parents, she was predeceased by her sisters and brothers, Rejeanne Morneault, Rachelle Albert, Gisele Lévesque, Réginald (Blanc) Lizotte, Armand (Titi) Lizotte, and Roger (Ti-Num) Lizotte.
