Anita was born and grew up on the family farm and ranch on Upper Cibolo Creek Road where she lived her entire life. She attended the Upper Cibolo Creek School. She met Felix before WWII and they married soon after he returned on April 6, 1946. They took over the dairy from her mother and brother and continued the dairy and egg route from Boerne to San Antonio until the mid-1980s. These two special people worked together on the land to not only make a living, but to preserve a homestead that has been in the family for more than a hundred years. Anita loved the outdoors and was an accomplished gardener with a yard and garden to be admired. She took pride in her gardens and beautiful flowers, winning numerous prizes through the years at the Kendall County Fair. She valued family and treasured time spent with all family, but especially her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren.
