Monsita Theresa Whitmore of Tampa departed this life on Sunday, February 4, 2018.  Visitation will be held Friday, February 9  from 6 to 8 p.m. at Ray Williams Funeral Home, 301 N. Howard Avenue.

Monsita Theresa Whitmore was born in Tampa, FL on December 1, 1961 to the late Velma Douglas. As a child she was a member of Friendship Missionary Baptist Church in Tampa and attended several Hillsborough County public schools. She was a graduate of Chamberlain High School, where she excelled in academics and was a member of the Chiefettes Dance and Baton Twirling Team.

She graduated with a degree from Hillsborough Community College and went on to higher education at Florida State University in Tallahassee, FL.

Upon her return to Tampa, her love of pets graced her with employment at The Humane Society of Tampa; she was also employed at other businesses in the Tampa Bay area, including GTE. Her loving spirit soared insurmountably high; most people she met was awestruck by her friendliness, kindness, and warmness. She is dearly missed.
