Anita’s family would like to thank Drs. Mian, Jahnke and Herdrich for the care given to our mother. Also we would like to thank the staff of I.C.U. and the third floor staff at Aurora Medical Center Washington County in Hartford as well as the gentle and caring staff of Kathy Hospice in the Town of Polk.

Mom was a warm and loving person who cared about everyone. She practiced her faith daily and could be counted on for needed prayers.
