1951 – 2013

SCARBOROUGH — Katherine P. Pitts, 61, of Sarasota, Fla., and Harrison died peacefully on Feb. 2, at the Gosnell Memorial Hospice House, after a brief battle with pancreatic cancer.

Born April 3, 1951, in Portland, she was the daughter of Emma H. Pitts of South Paris and Samuel L. Pitts Jr. of Harrison.

Kathy grew up in Harrison and graduated from Oxford Hills High School in 1969. After attending Husson College, she moved to the Portland area and raised her family in Gorham.

She worked for many years as a real estate appraiser before retiring in 2004, when she began spending her winters in Florida. There her love of golf developed. She became an avid golfer and enjoyed playing regularly on warm days in both Maine and Florida, but her true love was spending time with her daughters and grandchildren.

In addition to her parents, surviving her are three daughters, Jennifer Ward (Ken) of York, Sarah Hart (Chris) of Falmouth and Lindsey Seavey (Jared) of Kensington, N.H.; four grandchildren, Grace and Samuel Hart of Falmouth, Lachlan and Ainsley McMorris of York and one Seavey grandchild on the way; two sisters, Donna Barker (David) of Harrison and Judy McIver (Steve) of Bridgton; and three nephews. Jon Barker of Bridgton, Ryan McIver of Bridgton and Justin McIver of Bridgton.
