After retiring, Anita and her husband moved to McCoy and became members of the Three Oaks community. She enjoyed playing dominos with friends, crocheting keepsakes for friends and family, and volunteering her time in activities such as 4-H, Texas Public Employees Association, District 8 Nurses Association, the Food Pantry for the Poth area, and the Three Oaks EE Club.
