Beverly Anne Pitts

April 03, 1937 - December 15, 2018

Beverly Anne Pitts Mrs. Beverly Anne Pitts ("Boo"), a resident of Fairfield Glade, passed away peacefully at home on Dec. 15, 2018, at the age of 81, surrounded by several family members. For more than 50 years, Bev was married to the late Gerald Pitts, the love of her life, whom she now joins in heaven.
Born in Queens, New York, to the late Florence and George North Sr., Bev graduated high school from St. Agnes Academic School in Rockville Centre. She worked in the market research industry as a copy editor/proofreader. After retiring in 1997, she and Gerald moved to Fairfield Glade to pursue their lifelong love of golf. Bev was active in several leagues, scored her first hole-in-one, and was awarded the Dimpled Globe Award in 2007 for outstanding achievement by residents who benefit their community with personal leadership and character.
Bev was preceded in death by her sister, Gail Johnson; her brother, George North Jr; and cherished pet dog Duke. She is survived by her children, Kenneth (and Bambi) Pitts of Connecticut; Cynthia Van Diest of New York; David Pitts of Tennessee; Jeff (and Laura) Pitts of Illinois; Diane Ward of Texas; and stepdaughter, Heather (and Manuel) Garcia; sisters, Diane Ferrari of Georgia and Melissa (and Steven) Kalbacher of New York; and 14 grandchildren. She is also survived by several nieces and nephews, including her goddaughter, Donna Goguen of Texas, and godson, Tom Pitts of Massachusetts.
Bev had a passion for her family, travel, golf, the local Playhouse, crossword puzzles, her Catholic faith, and was often seen enjoying karaoke on weekend nights. Bev will be buried in the spring next to her loving husband Gerald at the VA Cemetery in Middletown, CT, following a ceremony with family and friends. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations may be made to AMVETS, one of Boo's favorite charities.

Boo, you are so missed. Sitting at the head of our table at Reds', waiting for Terry to play Delila, so that you could go up and do your thing, I will never forget. You always asked about my two grand kids Landon and Shayla, when they moved away, was so sweet. Loved how you spoke you mind, and teased me about my name. Love you Boo, I will always miss you.

MOM! 😭 The world lost one of the best! You treated me like a daughter. My biggest fear has come to be. This world won't be the same without you. Every night Mom would pray for each one of her children, including me. Now we have a champion in heaven to look out after us! I can hear you're melodic laugh as you Waltz away with Dad till we meet again! XO Dearest Mom

In my occasional encounters with Mrs. Pitts the experience was always lively, happy and out of the box. Like all the Pitts, she made me feel... "a part of. I'm sure you will miss her but she certainly earned her wings. Thanks for letting me share a few great moments with you. My deepest her friends and family.

Would go to Karaoke and see Boo holding court, sitting at the end of the table, with her precious friends. She always had a smile and kiss of friendship. She had an amazing Faith of love. Her son, Dave and I would do a Billy Joel song together. She LOVED it. A spitied woman who loves life; shared her joy with all in her path; and spoke her sassy mind! She will be missed on Earth. God needs her now.....I am so sorry for the earthly loss, to her family and friends.

Mom, there are no words to express what an amazing person you were. It is equally hard to say good-bye. Thank you for being the most loving, kind, caring, compassionate, and gracious lady I had the honor to call - Mom.
You were like one of the passengers in the story ... "The Train of Life" ... You encountered many "passengers" on your journey, your parents, siblings and friends, then the love of your life ~ Dad (Gerald Pitts), your children, your grandchildren and great grandchildren.
Heart breaking as it is to everyone, you stepped down from the train at your final destination, the "Fairfield Glade Train Station" on Dec 15, 2018. You left your seat vacant BUT, you left the best memories
...for your family and friends.
I will continue to honor your memory by carrying on your legacy of LOVE, Compassion, Caring and Gratefulness.

Lastly, I just want to say ~ Thank you Mom, for being one of the passengers on my train.

Signing off - as we did on our correspondence -
"I love you more - Because there is so much more of you to love" - YOSD ~ Feather.
