Anita, what a wonderful mother she was to her children, grandchildren and all the people she came in touch with. I remember when she moved into a house my mother rented her and her five young children who she raised on her own and did such a wonderful job . She welcomed everyone and was such a great neighbor. May all your wonderful memories that she gave you remain in your hearts forever!

Such a wonderful Memere ! I so enjoyed sending her my old Danielle Steele novels. How she loved those stories & i so enjoyed talking about them with her. Rest in peace Aunt Anita.

We are so sorry to hear of Anita's passing. My family spent many memorable days with her in Florida when she was married to my Uncle Dan. She was so wonderful to my girls who were little ones back then. Dan and Anita were often with my parents Louise and Bill Hikel sharing a meal, playing cards and enjoying life. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all at this time.
