David I am so sorry to just learn of Anita’s passing. Anita was a very special friend with her coming on board with the Master Gardeners Association and then a couple more groups that we both were involved. My very sincere sympathy at this very difficult time. Mary Lou Kelso

I am deeply saddened to hear the loss of dear Anita. I first knew her at Weis Jr. High where we were both in band. We were neighbors on Fairway and I enjoyed having her come to visit. I knew that Anita loved to swim. It was she who taught me how to dive at the Seahorse pool. Maybe I got my nerve up to dive by watching her. She was a good diver. Anita was always friendly and nice to everyone and she was an all around great person. My sincerest condolences and prayers go out to her family at this sad time. With deepest sympathy, Edie Steger Henson

My most sincere condolences in just learning of Anita's passing... I have very fond memories of Anita during band rehearsals and trips while at Ball High. I was in the percussionist section and she often critical us/me that we were "hoods" in the band because it did not take alot of talent! In German class, I would often help her in a study group...I remember reminding her that even a "hood" could learn German! We became friends and she would often look back and mouth the word "hood" during band practices. Rest in Peace dear friend. Condolences to your brother Steve and family... Noah

Steve, Sorry to hear about Anita. And I’m sorry I never got to know her better. I didn’t realize she was such a GHF person. Hope you are well. I wish you were around so we could again recall your role as Mr. Tesander. And I could get more of your calm, careful advice on life’s challenges. I am in steady contact with John Grossman who lives in Galvatraz. He is well and married to my ex. Had an email from Lee Framer. He wants to move back to the island but his wife says no. Your old pal, John

Sending my deepest condolences and prayers to your family, wonderful Anita! You were always the bright spot of every occasion, and you looked like Ann Margaret when I last saw you at the BHS band reunion. You may be gone, but you live in the hearts of everyone you met!
