Anita was strongly supported by many friends (Team Yoder) during her illness and they made many contributions to her well-being and comfort during her illness. Anita depended on them greatly and was very grateful for their support.

She is survived by her brothers Tom and Dave, their spouses, and many nieces and nephews.
