Anita loved to crochet and collect recipes. She was very active in her church parishes. Both in Richfield, UT and Magna, UT where she helped with the funeral committee, and led the rosary before mass. Anita was a firm believer in her faith, and it helped shape her life. She loved her family fiercely. Teaching her grandchildren valuable lessons and brightening up everyone’s day with hilarious stories about her life or the crazy things her kids did.

She will be dearly missed by those who survive her. Her brother Richard Fowler, sons Chris (Cyndy) and Darrell, twelve grandchildren, twenty-eight great-grandchildren, and two great-great-grandchildren

She is preceded in death by her husband Phil, son Russ, great-grandson Joshua, and daughter-in-law Starley.

For the better part of 4 decades we have been friends with the Gleave Family. What an amazing family and what an amazing legacy Anita leaves. It seems I was adopted into the family because of my friend ship with Sue Gleave (Bangerter). When time would allow me to attend daily Mass, it gave me the opportunity to catch up with Anita & I enjoyed every minute. She was a very special spirit and will be dearly missed!

Chris, Cyndy, Darrell and are in our every thought and prayers during this most difficult time.

God Bless & love Bob & Le Le Wilkinson

What a wonderful woman sweet Anita was. She had a special devotion to Our Blessed Mother and always spoke lovingly of family. Anita also had a great sense of wry humor. We will miss her warmth and charm. Love and blessings to all.
