Anita was born in Salvage, NF and arrived in Calgary in August 1969 to marry Lloyd. She proudly raised her three children until they had all entered school after which she decided to continue her dental career. Anita was employed by Drs. Peter Chan and Paul Chow until she was diagnosed with cancer in the summer of 2000. She spent her remaining years loving her family (particularly her grandchildren), and enjoying her wonderful friends. Anita was under the compassionate care of Dr. Karen Valentine and the “Medical Daycare” Staff at the Tom Baker Cancer Centre. Her family would like to thank her many friends who supported her with telephone calls and visits during Anita’s difficult time. A special thank you goes out to Dr. Karen Valentine and her staff, as well as Isabella Vandal, caregiver.
