Anita was a graduate of Marion County High School and following her graduation there she entered the Nursing Program at Erlanger Hospital. She worked much of her adult life as an R.N. and was praised for the tender, loving, and compassionate way she had in dispensing her TLC. She finished her career at Memorial Hospital, retiring in January of 2002. She is survived by her husband, Arthur; and two children, Ernest D. Peoples Jr. and Melinda E. West plus several grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Anita was a member of Mowbray Mountain Presbyterian Church where, along with her husband, they were leaders of the congregation for over twenty years. Along with her love of family and church she had a deep commitment to canine friends needing a new home. In the yard where she loved to work there are several trees that were planted to celebrate the dogs that had passed through her care on the way to others. Among the many achievements Anita won praise for, the two she was most proud of were being named "Employee of the Year" at Memorial Hospital and being voted "Woman of the Year" by her Mowbray Presbyterian family.
