Kittye Louise Schaeffer MacNeille Obituary
Kittye Louise Schaeffer MacNeille

Palm Harbor, FL

The MacNeille and Schaeffer families are saddened to report that Kittye Louise Schaeffer MacNeille passed away peacefully on Wednesday evening April 5th, 2017, in Palm Harbor, Florida at the age of 92. She was the third child of Mattie Sue Randolph and Joseph Henry Schaeffer of Capleville, Tennessee.

Kittye graduated from Whitehaven High School and immediately was hired as an executive secretary for Chicago and Southern Airlines and later was recruited to become a stewardess for Chicago and Southern in Memphis. She met her husband, Walter MacNeille, while flying from Memphis to New Orleans. Walter passed away in 1997 after celebrating 42 years of marriage.

While flying for Chicago and Southern Airlines, Kittye graciously treated numerous family members to fly with her to a number of places out of the country, which was much appreciated. Also, she and Walter opened up their home to friends and family who joined them in Florida in order to escape the winter weather and to enjoy the Florida sunshine and the lovely flowers and Palm Trees in her garden. Kittye and Walter raised their two daughters Denise and Suzanne in Florida and spent a lot of time at the beaches and local parks enjoying the Florida weather.

We will miss her.

Survivors include her daughters, Denise Wilson Wiesner and Suzanne Hess along with four grandchildren, Christopher Wilson, Eric Wilson, Ryan Hess and Stephen Hess. Also surviving Kittye are her brothers Milton Schaeffer and Duke Schaeffer and sisters Dorothy Randolph Schaeffer Vawter, Martha Sue Schaeffer Coleman, and Betty Caylor Schaeffer Carasso.

The family is having a private service. Donations can be made to Suncoast Hospice Care Center 164 W Lake Rd, Palm Harbor, FL 34684.
