Davanna E. Hitt

Davanna E. Hitt, 78 of Largo FL also known as Davy, Mom, Grandma, passed away Sunday October 3, 2021 at Largo Medical Center Hospital surrounded by her family members. Born on July 22, 1943 to Viola and David Snyder of Delhi, New York. She graduated from Delaware Academy in Delhi, New York, June of 1962. On July 4, 1962 she became Mrs. Sam Hitt, and moved to Florida.

Davy, as well as being a mom and housewife, she started working as a PE Teacher at Plumb Elementary and then a Data Prep Clerk for many years after retiring from Pinellas County School Board. She spent time with family, and she enjoyed meeting friends & colleagues for lunches or dinners. Davy was all about family. There was never a moment or time she wouldn’t say no, she would listen and was always there for her family and friends, and willing to lend a helping hand no matter the situation.

She is survived by her loving husband of 58 years, Sam, her daughters Debbie Hitt, Deanna Stevens, Michelle Hitt, and her son David Hitt. There are seven grandchildren, four great grandchildren, and her fur baby Dolly the Saint Bernard.

I’m sorry its taken so long to put into words just how much our mom, wife, grandma, and friend will be missed, always be loved, and in our hearts. I’m still thinking she will walk in the door like returning from vacation. I know she is in a better place and no longer in pain.

Please read & tell us a story, a moment you shared, or something that reminds you of our mom so it can be shared and live on through the years for future generations; so that they can read and be proud to know the people my mom knew and cared for now and forever.

    Davy was such a bright and happy part of the Plumb family! When I arrived in 2001, she welcomed me with open arms and a wonderful smile. I knew that she was always willing to help any of the staff when needed.I am so sorry to hear of Davy’s passing. Anyone who knew Davy also understood how important her family was to her. Please know that I am keeping Davy’s family in prayer as they grieve.

    I will always remember Mrs. Davy (thats what I called her) from Plumb. I would visit her every afternoon before my shift at the Y and we would just laugh and chat it up. She was always so kind and friendly. May she rest in peace.

  • Janice Garvue says:

    I had the pleasure of teaching 3 of Davy’s grandchildren at Plumb, and boy was she proud of them! Nothing could bring a smile to her face quicker than the mention of them. Davy always had a minute to stop and talk despite her difficult job. When she retired I missed her laugh in the front office, but was so happy that she could focus on herself and her family, whom she adored. May she rest in eternal peace knowing that she brought joy to many.

  • Silvija Rops says:

    Every morning before the school bell rang, I would meet Davy in her office and our conversation would commence. From family, to health, to tv shopping, to school issues and politics ,we discussed it all. Of course, we would end our conversation with “laughter”. She was so kind and giving. There was no better way to start my day than seeing Davy’s smile. She was an incredible person, who loved her family more than anything. She will be dearly missed. Praying for the family. May God’s peace and comfort surround you as you grieve her loss. Silvija Rops
