I have many wonderful memories of fun
times playing Mexican dominoes and cards in our neighborhood. Anita was not very lucky in winning but a good.sport none the less.
Anita never forgot a birthday or anniversary wish. You could count on a card in your mailbox.
Anita loved her family and often expressed her love for them and how they helped her out.
Hugs to all of you.

I will always treasure Aunt Anita’s kindness and generous love. When I was a child I was fascinated by her beauty and her lovely kind manner. She also spoke her truth when she felt it was needed and for that I will always respect her. Aunt Anita created a warm and beautiful home and enabled her guests to feel loved and relaxed. She was also a very talented artisan. My parents loved and respected her, my father was amazed and very moved by her care of his brother, George. She made my life better and I am sure that is true for a countless number of people. Thanks be to God for her life and all she did for all of us.

Aunt Anita was everyone’s favorite relative, I expect. She spoke her mind, even to my dad!, was always kind, smiling, fun and I wanted to be like her when I grew up. The memories of getting together with Chuck, Dana, Mike, and Uncle George and Aunt Anita are among the best of childhood.
