Services for Jo Leta Gavit of Port Aransas are scheduled for 11 a.m. on Saturday, Feb. 26 at Trinity-by-the-Sea Episcopal Church.
A reception in the parish hall will follow.
Gavit, 87, died on Sunday, Feb. 6.
Gavit helped establish the William R. “Bill” Ellis Memorial Library and provided it with support for many years.
The library’s Jo Leta Gavit Special Collections room was named after her.
Gavit also was largely responsible for the creation of Discover Port A! exhibit in the Port Aransas Civic Center’s foyer. Exhibits profile organizations including the University of Texas Marine Science Institute and Port Aransas ISD. Displays explain some Port Aransas history and list activities and points of interest in town.
In lieu of flowers, Gavit’s family is asking that folks make donations in her memory to the Friends of the Library organization. Checks should be mailed to Friends of the Library, P.O. Box 11, Port Aransas, TX., 78373.
