Etta Geneva Gatti

Date of Death: January 17, 2022

Date of Birth: November 15, 1926


Etta "Geneva" (Hurley) Gatti, a long time resident at Cape Elizabeth, Maine, passed away peacefully on January 17, 2022 at Birchwoods of Canco Assisted Care Facility, at the age of 95.

Geneva was predeceased by her 3 older siblings, Wayne, Warren, and Loren; her first husband, Leon Steeves; her second husband, Anthony Gatti; her only child, Sharon; and her step-son, Robert Gatti. She is survived by 2 grandchildren from her first marriage, and by her step-sons, Anthony Gatti II and John Gatti, and by over 20 grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Etta was born on November 15, 1926, in Warren County, Indiana, to Claude Moore Hurley and Edith Downey Hurley. She attended Columbus High School, graduating in 1945. Shortly thereafter she met and married her first husband, Leon Steeves, a Portland, Maine native, who was at the time serving in the US Army during World War II.

After returning from the war, they settled in Portland, Maine, where Geneva was a devoted spouse and mother to her daughter Sharon. She also worked for many years at the Nabisco Bakery in Portland, and later at Shaw's Supermarket as a book keeper. After Steven's death in April 1969, she met and married Anthony Gatti on March 27, 1970. They were happily married until Anthony passed away in July of 2002.
