I converted to the Catholic faith in 1995 and Anita was probably the first person to extend friendship and hugs to me, an outsider. She welcomed me into the Respect Life committee and in her I witnessed unwavering dedication to prayer and action for the most vulnerable little ones in the womb. She was loving and kind to all. She was both honest and gentle. She accepted the joy and pain in her life with amazing trust in God. She was an incredible cook! After the passing of her cherished husband, Chuck, she remained in the home they both loved—even adopting two abandoned kittens—thanks to the dedicated love of her daughter, son, and other family. Despite a slow, debilitating decline in health, she continued as a sacristan at St Bernardine (among other duties) for many more years. She possessed all the Gifts of the Holy Spirit, most especially Wisdom. And now, at last, I can talk to her anytime I want.

Mrs. Grill and the girls would play pinochle at our house with my mom. They would laugh and laugh. I knew they were coming over when the “good” cocktail glasses came out. My brother, Bill, had her as a den mother. She was such a nice woman. I’m sure a few games will be played in heaven. Much love to Connie and Chuck from the Locash’s. ❤️
