Anita was generous, intelligent, and informed. We had many fun times and good conversations. Her filing system (on artists) could rival today's internet. Shirley Katz

I send my condolences to the family on the loss of Anita. I remember her well and continue to cherish her wonderful lillies painting that was originally in my mom’s dining room in her apartment on Cote St Luc Road. The last time I saw Anita was in our own dining room in Vancouver where that painting of hers now lives. It is a good memory. I hope you are finding comfort in sharing the many stories of Anita’s relationships and what she gave to the world. Rob Dainow
