BAINE, Zita Althea

11/25/68 – 1/3/21

Zita Baine, born November 25 ,1968 in Cambridge Massachusetts, passed into heaven last week in Sarasota, FL. She has been a resident of Sarasota for 16 years. Zita and the Hall family also formally resided in Dunwoody, GA north of Atlanta, and formerly in Arlington, MA. A graduate of Georgia Southern University with a BA in business, Zita was a catering adviser for big companies throughout Atlanta and really made a foot print before during and after the 1996 Olympics, Zita was an adviser and event planner in the restaurant and hotel industry. Zita also worked with her brother Larry owner of the 26 year old Park Bench pub before she and husband Don Baine started their family. Zita also enjoyed working with the PGA golf association as a contract support team member in all duties that were called upon her. But her greatest passion was love for her family and friends. Possessing a gift of excellent perception of character, she always had kindness for those she met while maintaining a motherly affection and protection of family and loved ones. The foundation of this was her profound and unwavering love and relationship with her mom and dad. Even in times of recent illnesses, her caring for others above herself was abundantly evident, and lives on an example of selfless love for this world.

"LITTLE - Z" had a wonderful little boy Cole Baine and she lived life devoted to him, and loved him with every breath she took raising him. Zita is survived by: sisters Stacy 59 , Erin 55, brothers Tom 57, Larry 54; son-in-laws Bruce Barker and Dwight Smith , nephews Kyle Smith, Kevin Smith, Ryan Hall, Brendan Hall and nieces Katie Smith and Megan Siveright and sister in law Sue, and by her friend Mark. She is the daughter Anne and Ron Hall of Dunwoody, GA.

Zita was welcomed home by her Heavenly Father on January 3, 2021, and we now have a guardian-angel looking over us in this world. She will be laid to rest January 14th 2021 alongside of her beloved son Cole Baine. A family-only service will be held at St. Jude's Apostle in Sandy-Springs on January 14. The service will be streamed live at the following link: https://vimeo.com/498699829
