Anita Charlene Hampshire, 77, of Lee's Summit, Missouri, passed away on Wednesday, July 22, 2020. She was born to parents Harold and Helen Nash, on 09/04/1942 in, Kansas City, Missouri.

Anita and her husband James, (who passed 4-1/2 years ago) enjoyed each other’s company so much… they went everywhere together—Anita especially enjoyed traveling, reading, quilting, making jewelry, sewing, and socializing at their lake house in Warsaw, MO. In the winters both Anita and James were “snowbirds” and traveled to south Texas to a retirement RV community—they were involved in all kinds of fun activities there. They both “especially” loved being in Texas.

Those that knew Anita, knew how to spoil her—she loved her “Lindt Lindor Truffes”. Anita met James Earl Hampshire in 1990. They were married on July 27, 1991 in Kansas City, Missouri. Together they enjoyed 4 children: James A. Clark, Jr and wife Polly; Stuart A. Clark and wife Ruthann; Rhonda J Forsen and husband Scott; Sondra D. Brasfield and husband Rick.

Anita is survived by her wonderful grandchildren, Michael Kellam, Jason Clark, Kristin Drussel, Courtney Conant, Lauren Tellson, Mallory Klink, Mackenzie Karr, Paul Logan Clark, Candice Moody, and Riley Wyatt. Anita is also survived by 23 lovely Great-Grand Children.

She was preceded in death by James E Hampshire, husband. James was the love of her life, her best friend, and partner. They both adored each other, their marriage was perfect. Anita has been somewhat lost since his passing. What a joy and comfort to know she is now back in his arms! Anita expressed her wish for donations and continued support be made to Freezin' for a Reason.

I knew her from the Red Hat group she started about the time we moved to Warsaw. We went to the community center shortly after moving to Warsaw and she invited me to join her group..but due to health reasons, we moved back to Nebraska in 2009.... we tried to keep in touch for quite some time. I am so sad to learn that she has passed but all are right..she is happy back with James. My heartfelt sympathy to all who loved her.

My grandma... she was always there for me in my hardest times. I could drive over to her house and talk to her about anything without any judgment being passed. She couldn’t wait to get her hands on her newest great grand baby Maddox but time did not allow. I know she will be watching over him though, in addition to all of her other great grand children and our family. Grandma, I love you and I am so happy to know you are reuniting with James. That’s all you wanted since he went to heaven. You will be in our hearts forever!

I was so blessed to get to be Anita's caregiver. We had so much fun together and so many laughs. She will be missed by many. I know James was happy to greet her and they are back in each other's arms. RIP dear friend❤
