Anita and Todd married on July 7, 2001, and they built a wonderful and happy life together. To know Anita was to laugh as she was always joking. Throughout her battle with cancer her sense of humor never diminished. She loved her family and fought for more days to spend with them. Anita will be deeply missed by all who knew her.
