Anita P. Escalante, 93, passed away on Friday, October 8, 2021, at her beautiful home surrounded by her family.

She was born in Fresnillo, Zacatecas, Mexico in August of 1928, and was the daughter of Gilberto Parra and Juana Molina Parra. She was married to George F. Escalante on January 16, 1949 and had 8 children. She was an excellent wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother.

She devoted her time and all her energy to the care of her family. She created a beautiful and welcoming home in which all were welcome. She was an excellent cook and an excellent homemaker. She would ensure that all her family was taken care before herself. She will be remembered for her beautiful heart, her big and beautiful smile, and her elegant manner. She would light up every room she would go into with her smile and her overall energy. When she would finally get a chance for herself you would find her on the beach with her feet in the sand just enjoying life.
