Della A. (Blazis) Gutt, 92, of Glastonbury, beloved wife of the late John J. "Jack" Gutt, died Sunday December 25, 2011 at home surrounded by her family. Born August 30, 1919 in Hartford, daughter of the late John and Adela (Kvietkauskas) Blazis. Della married Jack in 1944 and moved to the family farm raising 3 children, Carol, Richard and Irene. Della worked with Jack in creating a successful farming business. Della grew up in Poquonock in a large close extended family with brothers, sisters their spouses and many nieces and nephews who always delighted in visiting Auntie Della at the farm. Della enjoyed a good game of cards and more often than not was the victor. She loved her granddaughters, Courtney and Leeza and was happy to be around them as they grew up. "Gram" (as they called her) loved teaching them her special recipes and sharing farm life with them. Her family wishes to thank all those who cared for Della over the past 5 years, especially her friend Genya who was by her side for 3 years warming her heart and bringing her back to her Lithuania roots. She gave much love to many and we will miss her warm smile and her subtle sense of humor.
