I remember growing up with Anita and she was ALWAYS making me laugh. She was so funny. She had the kindest heart and was the sweetest person. My thoughts and prayers are with the family. Another angel got her wings. Always on my mind.... Forever in my... Hart. 💝

From the time Anita was a little girl she was always a caring and loving person.
We had many conversations over the years especially the last 5 years. She would contact me for advice and insight and I was so happy that she trusted me enough to confide in me!
She will be truly missed and will always be loved!!
I know without a doubt that she’s resting in peace in heaven with my brother ❤️

So many memories with this woman. Anita was my stepmom for many many years. Her and James were a big part of our family. I will truly miss her dearly. She was there when my son was born and that was 28 yrs ago.

Cousin Anita has such a big big heart. She loved her pets and all dogs in general. One time, when I was a child, she came down to visit the family in Hughes, Arkansas. We went to the store and she was driving a borrowed vehicle. Lol. We accidentally turned on the hazard lights and couldn’t figure out how to turn them off. So we drove home with the flashers on. Laughing all the way. So many more memories I could share. She will be missed.
