I heard about Aunt Nita’s passing 5 days after the funeral service. She was the last of my mother’s (Leone’s) brother and sisters (I’m not real sure but I think so). I’ve lost touch with that side of my family and I deeply regret it. Aunt Nita was always one of my favorite people in the world to visit. My sincere condolences in your loss.

To Anita’s Family,
My name is Tony Haefs, son of R.W. Haefs, Sr. (Anita’s brother). In 1964, I flew to Wisconsin and Michigan for the first time and met many of my relatives for the first time. Anita was one I met and stayed with for several days. She was by far my favorite aunt. I want to thank Norma for letting me know. I will continue to be in prayer for your family. Anita will always have a very special place in my heart. Blessings,
