I remember as a kid being so excited when she would come to visit for a weekend! Hope she is up there visiting with my mom who also really enjoyed her visits! A memory of my childhood!

A Very Beautiful Person with a good sense of fun and family that all the "Northerners" enjoyed her visits in summers at cousins' homes or the beach. Always remembered as a Very Warm Cousin. Vic, Joyce and all our families

Anita although small was my "Big" cousin. We attended her graduation from nursing school and I remember staying on for a few days and visiting with her mom, dad, and brother. I got to meet some of her friends as well. I felt so grown up! For years she worked with sick children until she finally felt she could not do it any more. How hard it is to give injections etc. to little children. May you Rest In Peace, Anita.

I have many memories of Anita but at the top of the list is the fact the in 1964 she got me a summer job at Illinois Research Hospital (UIC Hospital) as an orderly in the operating room. There I met my future wife, Lois. I will always be grateful.
