Meet Anita

Writer, Speaker, Ceremonialist

Anita grew up in a large family (9 kids) on a farm in southeast Nebraska. Her Midwestern values (hard work, honesty and helping others) remain at the core of who she is today. She moved to Colorado in 1979, and believes she’s almost-a-native! Anita loves everything the Rocky Mountains have to offer in every season. Yes, even the snow. She enjoys hiking, snowshoeing, snowmobiling and all the beautiful sunny days. Sunshine is good for the soul, filling us with love and hope.

Anita is passionate about creating highly personalized Memorials and Celebrations of Life. Many families choose to have the ceremony outdoors. What better way to celebrate your loved one’s life than being outside, connecting with the beauty of nature, feeling the warmth of the Colorado sunshine and breathing in the fresh mountain air? 

The best part of any Celebration of Life or Memorial is always the people who share in it. There is a quote by Thomas Horn that says, “Grief, no matter where it comes from, can only be resolved by connecting to other people”. That is so true.

Anita is a lifelong learner, writer, artist and speaker. She is a compassionate listener and learns about your loved one’s life through your memories and stories. She truly considers it an honor and privilege to collaborate with you for a unique Remembrance. Every life is important and everyone leaves a lasting legacy.
