Anita is survived by her daughter Taiz Monterastelli and twin
grandchildren Dylan and Jagger Monterastelli, brother Mark and his

will be lovingly remembered as a wonderful friend and step-grandma by

It was Anita's request that no services be held. You may honor her
memory and love for animals with a donation to the Nevada Humane Society
or an animal rescue service of your choice.
