As well as being a homemaker and mother, Anita co-owned with Archie, their transportation and garage business, working as manager and bookkeeper, while Archie was on the road. She also held various clerical and retail positions and spent time as a girl guide leader.

Anita was a kind, loving, smart, funny and determined person. She was proud and independent, loved the Blue Jays and watched almost every game.

She was always trying new recipes for her family and friends and proudly hosted many family gatherings using her treasured china and crystal. Anita loved doing jigsaw puzzles with her children and grandchildren, and preferred Springbok.
