Anita was born in Anaconda, Montana to Anna Crutcher Williams and Perry Williams.
Anita’s husband Harry Walter Sheldon of 41 years preceded her in death in 1977.
They had two daughters Marilynn (hus- band Bob) and Candace and one son, Harry Patrick who preceded his mother in death by nearly two years.
She also had two almost daughters, Penny and Beth (she called them her little women.)
Anita had four grandchildren, Michael (wife Jen), Michaelle, (life partner Shane) Terri (husband Craig) and Joleen, and seven great-grandchildren, Taylor, Erin, Emily, Rowan, Ava, Emme and Henry “Harry”.
Anita loved to paint, draw, crochet, do cross word puzzles, play pinochle, horse racing, the casinos and she especially loved her family and her home in Spokane.
She was a no nonsense person, very generous and kind and loved life, and had a wonderful and dry sense of humor.
Services will be held at Hennessey Funeral Home, Wednesday 5/2 at 1pm.
