Anita’s greatest love was caring for her family.  She volunteered as a Girl Scout leader, a Cub Scout Den Mother, a parent volunteer at Round Meadow School and a math tutor. She was an amazing mom who made her children’s lives special and who gave unconditional love.  Anita took great delight in her 8 grandchildren.  She was a constant cheerleader for their success in academics, various activities and teams.  She loved to encourage their musical interests and enjoyed hosting an annual recital after Thanksgiving dinner where they could showcase their musical talents. 

Anita was an accomplished pianist and enjoyed attending classical music and opera concerts.  She loved animals including her 3 cats, rabbit and 5 lovebirds.  She loved to sew, especially for family and friends in need of her talents.  She also served as a member of the Bucks County Dairy Promotion Committee.  She was faithful to the Lord and  was involved in many capacities at Saint John Bosco Parish – as a choir member for more than 45 years, Lector, Cantor, Eucharistic Minister, Women’s Guild, Altar and Rosary Society, and an office volunteer.
