Anita was an incredibly intelligent and kind woman. She devoted her life to caring for her family, faithfully tending to the needs of her parents and her beloved sister Elsie during their times of need. She truly cherished her friendships, nurturing each of them with great love and appreciation. Her strong Catholic faith sustained her through life and gave her great joy. Anita’s professional accomplishments were also impressive and the younger generation of her family admire her as an inspirational role model for her ability to skillfully manage career, family and friends. She was incredibly strong over the past several years in the face of many serious health challenges, but she never lost her quick wit, sharp mind and will to live as independently as she was able.
