Thirty-three years ago today, Anita and Joe got married. They were so young but so in love. They met when she was 15 and married before she turned 23. It was such a joyful day. The two families really became one.
I was Anita’s maid of honor. I was 19 and this was a first wedding for me too! Apparently, I was responsible for remembering her makeup so that she could touch it up after crying in the church (Anita was so sensitive and crying from joy not uncommon for her) before they did all the pics and reception… Well…I forgot it. All of it. Not just the mascara or the blush…the whole bag! Needless to say, she was NOT happy with me BUT like the good sister she was she ultimately forgave me. Might have taken a few years and I know she remembered this until the very end since it was one of the last things we talked about.
I miss her so much.

We met Anita when we were blessed to become her next door neighbor 19 years ago. From that moment on she considered us family. She was a wonderful friend, mother and wife. She loved unconditionally. We will miss seeing her smile and hearing her laugh but most especially miss her friendship. May God bless her and reunite her with her parents. Hugs and prayers to the entire family 🙏🏻❤️🙏🏻❤️

I had the privilege of becoming Anita’s friend when Chris and my son, Mitchell, were in kindergarten together. Her smile and laugh were infectious. There were so many good times…field trips, trunk-or-treat, fall festivals, and others…but my favorite memories were the times we sat on the bench together for hours while the boys played after school. I will always cherish our talks, which were usually centered around family. She loved Sammy, Chris and Joe so much and was so very proud of them. I will miss Anita 💕

Anita was such a sweet, kind soul with a beautiful heart and smile. It was an honor to know her. I knew my boys were in good hands when they were with her.

Joey, I remember the day you called me and told me about this girl you were going to marry. You loved her so much and you wanted me to love her too! I didn't know her then, so once I met her I did. But over the years when I got to know her I realized she was the perfect wife for you and a wonderful mother for your kids. She was the only other woman that was like Linda. She will always be with you and the boys. God gave her to you, Sammy and Chris and she was a wonderful gift. We are sorry for your loss, but happy for her. No more suffering here and happy up there! Love Uncle Sam and the family.

For the past year or so I had the privilege of caring for Anita.

She had many tough days while we were together. She handled these days with grace and humor. She referred to the ugly functional shoes Joe bought as her “Herman munsters” and her white long compression socks as her “George Washingtons”.

We had many fun adventures in the car joking that we were Thelma and Louise, going for ice cream, getting bloodwork done on a very snowy day last winter, and getting a margarita after going to Towson Orthopedics. (I did not indulge!)

Last year no one could get out much, but I was able to go to Anita’s. We shared our life stories-our childhoods, our high school days, how we met our husbands; we talked a lot about our kids- the most important part of our lives.

We decorated her house for Christmas, made cookies, shared recipes, talked, laughed, and built a beautiful friendship in a short time. I cared for Anita but she also cared for me. I am so grateful for our time together.

Don’t pity us for losing Anita. We were the privileged. We got to be her sister, spouse, cousins, children, nephews….We got to bask in her brilliance and light. We got to be a part of her world and have our worlds changed and shaped for the better because of her.

I fell in love with her Aug 17, 1969 when they brought me home from the hospital. Some people have older siblings who torture or ignore them. I had an older sister who nurtured and supported me. I am convinced that I learned to walk, ride a bike and drive a car just so I could follow her. I worshipped her and always wanted to be wherever she was. She tolerated me following her to friends’ houses, sleepovers, heck even on her dates with my future brother-in-law. She tolerated me wanting to BE just like her.

I was 11 when she met Joe, my future brother-in-law. They met at a Loyola High School mixer when she was a sophomore at IND. I had a front row seat to what would be the greatest love match of a lifetime. Those two defined the term “soul mates”. I was privileged to be her maid of honor on their wedding day and godmother of their first child-Sammy.

She got me through the worst moments of my life-the loss of my first child, my mom’s death, Josh’s drowning, divorce and being laid off. Without her strength and faith, I never would have survived being knocked down so many times. No matter how many times it happened she picked me back up and propped me up until I could stand on my own.

Of everyone who was privileged to be a part of her world, I was probably the luckiest one so don’t feel sorry for me.

I loved working with Anita at Coyne & McClean! She had a beautiful smile and her laugh was the highlight!
May she be free of her suffering and at peace at home with God.
May your memories of her give you comfort during this difficult time.
