Obituary

On October 22, 2105, a remarkable woman, Joyce Elaine Plitt, lost her battle with Lupus.
Her age is not important as it was just a number that could never describe her youthful vibrancy. Joyce had an insatiable zest for life. A resident of Stone Creek, Joyce was an award-winning golfer and loved to travel. She had a passion for entertaining, always made too much food and always made you feel at home. Joyce showed kindness and unrelenting love to everyone she met. “Can’t” isn’t in my vocabulary, she would stubbornly say. She met each day with a determination to live life to its fullest. And on the bad days, her faith gave her the strength to push through. Joyce’s friends and their unwavering love and support meant the world to her. Anyone that had the privilege to meet Joyce knows that she was surely taken from us too soon. She will forever hold a special place in our hearts.

Joyce is survived by her partner, Greg Anderson of Ocala, FL; Charles Robert Sebour, son of Baltimore, MD; Eric Plitt, son, and wife Janel of St. Augustine, FL; Bruce Sebour, son of Baltimore, MD; Preston Sappington, brother and wife, Kathy of Ocala, FL; Joseph Sappington, brother, and wife Chris of St. Augustine, FL; Judy Harmon, sister, and husband Wayne of Ocala, FL. 4 grandchildren and countless nieces, nephews and cousins.

Per Joyce’s request, no services will be held. In lieu of flowers, we would love for you to make a donation to the Lupus Foundation of America. Please visit Joyce’s memorial page @ http://lupus.donorpages.com/Raise4Lupus/JoycePlittMemorial

    Your love of family, friends and God, coupled with your " I can do anything" spirit made you the most open, caring, loving and beautiful person I've ever known. You fought so hard every day to stay. I ache every minute without you. Although I can't see you, I feel you all around me. Our memories and love will always fill my heart.

    I met Joyce once on the golf course and that's all it took to know she was a special person. Judy Harmon always kept me updated on her condition and how she was doing. It's obvious she will be missed by everyone who met her. Hey Joyce, can you help my golf game from Heaven? My sincere condolences to the family.

    You lived your dash brilliantly!

    The Dash
    by Linda Ellis copyright 1996

    ​I read of a man who stood to speak
    at the funeral of a friend.
    He referred to the dates on the tombstone
    from the beginning…to the end.

    He noted that first came the date of birth
    and spoke the following date with tears,
    but he said what mattered most of all
    was the dash between those years.

    For that dash represents all the time
    that they spent alive on earth.
    And now only those who loved them
    know what that little line is worth.

    For it matters not, how much we own,
    the cars…the house…the cash.
    What matters is how we live and love
    and how we spend our dash.

    So, think about this long and hard.
    Are there things you’d like to change?
    For you never know how much time is left
    that can still be rearranged.

    If we could just slow down enough
    to consider what’s true and real
    and always try to understand
    ​the way other people feel.

    And be less quick to anger
    and show appreciation more
    and love the people in our lives
    like we’ve never loved before.

    If we treat each other with respect
    and more often wear a smile,
    remembering that this special dash
    might only last a little while.

    ​So, when your eulogy is being read,
    with your life’s actions to rehash…
    would you be proud of the things they say
    about how you spent YOUR dash?

    How we will miss "Joycie." She brought so much fun and laughter to all of us and was the perfect partner for my brother, Greg. I marvel at her positive, upbeat nature, even during the times she wasn't feeling well. May we often recall the words I so often heard her speak: "Thank You, Lord." I'm so grateful He gave us Joyce to bless our lives. We will miss you, my Dear sister.

    We have lost a wonderful, sweet and caring sister and we feel the loss deeply. Joyce's loss will be felt by everyone who had the pleasure of knowIng her. Through all her many years of suffering, she always had a smile and such determination to conquer the ugly disease that kept rearing its ugly head. Her determination kept her going. Joyce deeply loved her family, as well as her dearest friends, Judy and Wayne, and most of all, her LLC Greg. We will miss you and will carry you in our hearts forever. Pat and Kathy

    I have so many wonderful memories of my Aunt Joyce when I was young. She was patient and kind. She would have had to been to be married to a Plitt as long as she was. :) She worked with me as a kid, helping me learn to swim at a young age in the pool outback. My sister and I used to love to go visit. I remember she was always smiling. May she rest in peace.

    I never remember a time seeing Joyce Elaine without a smile on her face, regardless of what she was dealing with inside. Loved her sassy attitude, her love of life, her "we are women, hear us roar" approach to life. Joyce, those Herrick reunions won't be the same without ya, but we'll roar in your honor!

    Joyce,
    I've known you since I was a little girl. You were my other big sister who let me tag along with you and Judy..sometimes not by choice! You were always a bright star in our lives and kept us laughing. You were a fighter to the very end. We were blessed to have you as part of our lives and you will be missed. May you rest in peace Sis. Love you!

    there are no words to describe how remarkable you were as a person. I can't even begin to count the things you taught me... from how to cook to how to properly fold laundry to how to have patience and deal with a Plitt! You were a guiding light and an inspiration to not only me, but to everyone that met you! From the beginning, you welcomed and embraced me and made a part of your family, as you did with all of your friends and everyone you cared about. You have always been a pillar of strength in my life. With all my heart, thank you for being you. We love you!
