She enjoyed camping, fishing, and riding ATVs. She was also a member of the Utah ATV Association. Anita made friends wherever she went, and she had a smile and personality that was contagious to everyone who met her. She loved spending time with the “Wild Bunch,” her ATV friends.
She was an amazing grandmother and mother, and she loved her family so greatly.
Anita valiantly fought her cancer for 13 months before her body became too weak to fight any longer.
