SCARBOROUGH — Katherine P. Pitts, 61, of Sarasota, Fla. and Harrison, Maine, died peacefully on Saturday, Feb. 2, 2013, at The Gosnell Memorial Hospice House in Scarborough after a brief battle with pancreatic cancer. Born April 3, 1951 in Portland, she is 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 Fla. But, her true love was spending time with her daughters and grandchildren.

In addition to her parents, surviving her are her 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, Ryan McIver and Justin McIver, all of Bridgton.

A service celebrating her life will be held at 1 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 8, 2013, at Dunegrass Golf Club, 65 Wild Dunes Way, Old Orchard Beach, Maine. A private burial will take place at Harrison Village Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to The Gosnell Memorial Hospice House, 11 Hunnewell Rd. Scarborough, ME 04074.
