Marie Ethel Spiotta passed peacefully surrounded by family at her home on March 21, 2022 at the age of 77. She was born on April 18, 1944 in Batavia to the late Alvin and Ruth (McClurg) Baubie. In addition to her parents, Marie is predeceased by her sister and brother-in-law, Carol and Michael Rich; husband, Frank Spiotta, Sr.; and niece Kristi Marie Luthart.
Marie was a loving mother and grandmother, and a friend to many. She enjoyed cooking for her large family and many friends, where her sauce, salad dressing, and clams casino were, and always will be, renowned family recipes. Marie enjoyed a long career as a hairdresser, where she met most of her lifelong friends.
All things nature brought Marie joy and she could often be found gardening or tending to the wildlife – especially the birds. Her cat, Kitty, was a faithful friend that could often cheer Marie up with her fetching antics.
Marie is survived by her three sons, Frank (Sue) Spiotta of Alexander, Anthony Spiotta of Oakfield, and Timothy (Sue) Spiotta of Oakfield, as well as her grandchildren, Erin Coles, Nicole (Ed) Reid, Courtney (Aaron) Way, Lydia Spiotta, Ariel Spiotta, Jewelean Spiotta, Haley Spiotta, and Hunter Spiotta, as well as many nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, and cousins. She is also survived by her sisters Patti Baubie, Linda (Butch) Luthart, and Joyce (late James) Stevens, as well as her dear nieces Debbie and Callie Lawrence.
