Lynnette Marie Pitisci

June 13, 1963May 21, 2020

56, passed away May 21, 2020 in Tampa, FL after a long battle with breast cancer. Lynnette was born and raised in Tampa and attended Ballast Point Elementary, Madison Middle School, and graduated from Robinson High School. She worked as an administrative assistant for Lake Carlton Arms North in Lutz for over 30 years. I met the love of my life, soulmate, and best friend on May 3, 1985. We were married at Christ the King Catholic Church in Tampa, FL. She was a loving, and caring wife and mother. She instilled in our family and son the values of faith, responsibility, accountability, respect for others, honesty, hard work, and caring for others. She always had a smile that would light up a room no matter who she met or wherever she went. She had a generous heart and always helped others in need. Lynnette was an inspiration to others no matter what the situation was. Her smile continued even throughout breast cancer treatments and she never complained or asked why. During her treatments, she would always stop in other patients' rooms and tell them to have faith, stay positive, an never give up. Our marriage was based on faith, love, devotion, affection, and the passion we shared with each other. She was a warrior, a fighter, and my heart. Lynnette was a beautiful person inside and out. I loved and worshipped her. She was my queen. She was a wonderful wife to me and gave me her love everyday. Still, after 35 years of marriage, I had that twinkle in my eyes and my heart would pound every time I kissed or hugged her. Lynnette was my whole life and I loved her will all of my heart and I always will. She was the most positive person I ever met. She was my angel on Earth and now she is my angel in Heaven. She is in God's hands now and I know she will be watchin over me and our son, Jimmy. She will no longer suffer. I was the lucky one and blessed to have her in my life and I will always cherish our memories together. You will be dearly missed by all. Lynnette was preceded in death by her father, Gerald Gilbert. She is survived by her loving husband of 35 years, James Vincent Pitisci Jr.; son, James Vincent (Tiffany) Pitisci III; grandchildren: Vincent James Pitisci, and Anthony Louis Pitisci; mother, Virginia Gilbert; brothers, James Gilbert, Jerry Gilbert, and Joey (Melody) Gilbert; sister, Lorri Gilbert; sisters-in-law, Mary Frances Pitisci-Radcliffe, Karen Pitisci, and Lisa Gilbert; brother-in-law, Michael Pitisci; and many aunts, nieces, nephews, and cousins. Due to COVID-19, a Celebration of Life will take place at a later date.

So very sorry for your loss Jimmy & Little Jimmy. I remember Lynette as always smiling & happy. She never had a bad word to say ever. She was always kind and genuine. Anyone I have met through the years who knows her; always had happy memories of Lynette. Everyone has said she was always smiling and laughing. It is a tremendous loss to lose a person with so much goodness in her heart. I know that she will be looking down over and smiling upon Jimmy, Little Jimmy and her grandsons. She left such a smile and much love upon us. Rest in peace sweet Lynette.

To my darling wife. I love and miss you so much. Our 35 years of marriage were based on love, faith and admiration for each other. I remember our first kiss and our days of going to the beach and going out to our favorite spots for dinner. You made me so happy when you married me. We were made for each other. Even after 35 years I still had that twinkle in my eyes and my heart pounding every time I saw you or hugged and kissed you. I adored you and worshipped you. Your smile would light up a room. You were always helping others in need. Listening to their problems and making them feel better by telling them to be positive. I never met such a person with a positive attitude no matter what the situation was. Your faith was strong. Even when you got cancer again you never complained or asked why. Always positive with that beautiful smile. I know you suffered but you kept fighting and saying I'm going to beat this again. I was with you until the end. My heart is broken but I know you will want me to continue on. You were my inspiration, my love, my soulmate and best friend. God had his plan and even though its hard I have accepted it. You have touched so many lives. You are my angel in heaven now. And I know you will be watching over me and little Jimmy. He misses you so much. I miss you so much. I wish I could hold, hug and kiss you again. I will always love you and cherish the memories we had. You were my queen. I love you. Your husband Jimmy.

Mom, as the days go by and weeks it gets harder and harder. I still get off work wanting too call you and see how your doing. I go see dad and look over at the couch too see you laying there. I can't believe that you are gone. For so long you fought and didn't complain. Dad and I are doing okay. You know its very hard on me. I love you so much. The out pouring of love for you is incredible. You are my angel now. I miss you. Just saying hello again, your son Jimmy.

Lynette fought cancer twice and with all the strength she had. But cancer took her in the end. No more pain now. Just happiness. Lynette, you are now a guardian angel for your family. I will make sure Jimmy and Little Jimmy are taken care of. WE ALL WILL!!!

I live at LCA and whenever I went to the office to pay my rent she was there and always had a smile on her face. She will be sorely missed. My deepest condolences to her Family and the LCA Family.

Our Lynetti-pooh..we'll never forget.
You were caring and funny and even yet...
Oh so tough and didn't complain...
You fought your battles without disdain.
You touched our hearts in ways so deep,
In those chambers your memory we keep.
And so to you the honor we give.
We'll never forget; You forever live.
So work it now; receive the love!
You red carpet girl...up there..above!
Strut your stuff...we're cheering you on!
And now you carry a DIVINE baton!

Lynnette, Everyday for the 30 years we worked together at Lake Carlton Arms was a very special time. Your secret knocks on the door to get in my office, are breaks outside throughout the day, your jokes, your dances (imitating birds) all kept me laughing and made any bad day good days all because of you. It was a pleasure to know and work beside you in those unforgettable
Years. No pain now my little Angel. R.I.P.
My Deepest Sympathy to the Pitisci Family
You are Truly Missed.
