Anita Marie,

Loving wife to Gordon for thirty-five years and devoted mother of Erin, Joel, and James and mother-in-law to Kristen and Daisy passed away on June 24th, 2012. Prior to her passing Anita dedicated herself to her family, friends, and patients. Her grandson Robert Francisco "Robbie" was her greatest joy and he loved his "honey".

Anita loved talking politics and reminding people to vote Republican almost as much as she loved telling stories about her days working on the CVSDU at Fairfax.

It was clear during Anita's final days the number of people who's lives she touched. Her time as a patient in the ICU was filled with as much laughter as her time there as a provider. Her sense of humor was and will be never ending, and she insisted that there be no "waterworks" but forgave those of us who couldn't help but shed a tears for this amazing woman.

She was not afraid of anything in life and prepared for her own passing. She bravely accepted her condition and used her last moments in this world to ensure the well being and happiness of those she loved. Her passing was peaceful and she sends her love to all.

Memorial Service will be Wednesday, June 27, 2012 at 2:00pm at Demaine Chapel 5308 Backlick Road Springfield, Virginia, 22151, 703-941-9428,

I've known Anita since she and Gordon were dating in high school. When my son Seth was born she stayed with us for a month to help out. She was always kind, loving, and and lighted-hearted. I will miss her.

Gordon and family,
I am so sorry to learn of your loss. Another star shines the heavens tonight!. Anita was such a sweet spirit and kind personality. Although our paths only crossed briefly, and that was more than thirty years ago, Anita always treated me like a member of the family. I remember how much she loved Gordon and how she talked frequently about her desire for children. I never knew her as a mother, but I'll bet she was a great one. Her legacy will live on in those she loved and touched, and her reunion in glory will be something for us all to look forward to!
God bless you and comfort you in your loss,

Dear Bosch Family,

I knew Anita since the Respiratory school in NOVA, we all have kids, & we all both started working in Fairfax Hospital, then I saw her working at night to study B.S.with 3 young children at home, advanced to PA program, finally became a PA in CVSD. Along the way, she always carried her heart with her, being straight & humorous...Now she might have accepted her destiny, I am still coping with the loss. As close as you are as a family, you know better about her love & courage. Time will easy the pain & tears, but her strength is forever real. Please take good care, you are the core center of her life.
