Condolences & Memories (2 entries)

  • My sincere condolences to Milton, Lorraine, Dan and her grandchildren and siblings. Although I couldn't be there for the funeral I'm there in Spirit. Anita was a great woman and I enjoyed her company, especially at the bingo on McPhillips Street Station Casino, sharing stories. Anita was always there for her children, grandchildren and her siblings and friends. She was generous and made the best buns and bannock. Last time I saw her I got to give her hugs and a kiss. You are no longer in pain and soaring high above. May Creator wrap his arms around her family at this time of great sorrow. Love you lots Anita, your friend and relative Audrey Henderson - Posted by: Audrey Henderson (Relative and Friend) on: Jul 29, 2022

  • I was just driving down Salter passed Anita's place last week and was wondering how she was or if she still lived at her home. I haven't seen or heard from Anita in 18 years, she did some cooking for me for my sister's one year memorial for me. I first met her in the 80s she was with the Federal government on Edmonton Street. Many of us at the time travel through out Manitoba, encouraging young Indigenous youth to Stay in School and Follow their Dreams. We must have driven up #6 Highway 500 times together or flying to a remote rez communities. Anita had a kind heart and was always willing to share advice or food with anyone who needed help. She liked her VLTs and bingo too. and was alot more lucky than most of us that traveled together. I've thought of many of my ole friends and have lost many, she will be missed and I commend her for the dedication she had for young people in this province, many were able to move forward in life with Anita's guidance. My deepest thoughts go out to those who loved her and especially her family and grandchildren. Clayton Sandy and family - Posted by: Clayton Sandy (Working Colleague) on: Jul 26, 2022
