Our nursing community has suffered another loss.  It is with a heavy heart that I must inform you that Julie Pitts, clinical nurse specialist, passed away on September 15, 2013. She had worked in the intensive care unit and was certified in oncology.  Julie was an extraordinarily professional and compassionate nurse who was an angel to many thousands of patients and families in her 41 years of nursing. She was a mentor and role model to dozens of young nurses throughout her nursing career, and worked at Naples Community Hospital, at Lee Memorial Hospital and most recently at Physician's Regional Hospital.

A visitation will be held on Thursday, September 19, 2013 from 4:00PM - 7:00 PM, at Fuller Funeral Home, 1625 Pine Ridge Road, Naples, 34109.

A funeral service will be held on Friday, September 20 at 10:00AM at North Naples United Methodist Church's main sanctuary, 6000 Goodlette Road N, Naples, 34109, with interment to follow at Palm Royale Cemetery, 6780 Vanderbilt Beach Road, Naples, 34119

In lieu of flowers, donations in Julie's name may be made to the Cancer Alliance of Naples.
