LEAVITT, Gay Donna born on July 31, 1944 in Plainfield, NJ to the late Hazel (Vanderbeck) & Joseph Russo. She and her family moved to St. Petersburg in 1954. After graduating from Dixie Hollins High School in 1962 she began working for Better Business Forms, retiring in 2003. On June 20, 2014 Gay was called home to Heaven after a serious but brief illness. She enjoyed her cats, Frasier, Niles, Daphne & Roz, as they brought her much joy. She also collected miniature perfume bottles, loved to read and was a true Buccaneer fan. Gay was preceded in death by her parents, the love of life, husband Richard Leavitt, a dear brother, Joseph Russo and nephew Anthony Russo. She is survived by son, Joseph Prescott and his wife Stephanie; grandchildren, Cheyenne, Sidney & Zachary Prescott; great-grandson, Kyle Lane, Jr; and nephews, Joseph, Eric & Justin Russo. Per Gay's wishes, no services will be held.
