You never went hungry when you came to Mrs. Myers, she would cook for a crew and enjoy every minute and spending time with her family. Her biggest joy was being with her great-grandson, Tyler Conrad, they maybe just sitting and talking or enjoying a sonic together, she didn’t care he was her life. Anita will be dearly missed by her family and most of all we will miss the love she had for us and the care she gave. Love you.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made in Anita’s honor to Baptist Children Home, 2200 S. Avenue I, Portales, NM 88130.
