Anita loved to listen to Richard Clayderman; sit down with a good book; watch Anne of Green Gales; and play cards with her friends.
She loved going out in service and teaching others about Jehovah. She enjoyed going to Assemblies and Conventions and going out to eat with friends afterwards.
She was a friend to many, she especially loved caring for the older ones in the congregation and always made herself available to help them, she loved doing that. She had a gift for it.
