Anita was preceded in death by both parents, Juelene Armstead (nee Coleman) and Richard Curtis Armstead.
Anita was a kind, loving, artistic, and passionate person. Anita loved to sing. She spent many years singing in various choirs and enjoyed open-mic nights at poetry houses. She enjoyed bringing joy to her friends and loved ones. Anita was a talented massage therapist and brought many people great relief and relaxation through her small, but powerful, hands. Anita often said she felt that God had made her hands for healing.

I am free to fly on wind, to catch the breeze, floating where I please.
I am free to shine with the sun, to light up the day in my own special way.
I am free without my body, to live on in your memory.
Anita was very loved and will be deeply missed by all!
A Celebration of Life reception will be scheduled.
