Anita Gail Chalfant passed on January 10, 2021 at the age of 67 in her home surrounded by family. Full of life and love, Anita cherished family, friends, and community. Through these relationships, her legacy and memories will be carried on in the hearts of many.

Anita was born on September 12, 1953 in Atchison, KS. She grew up on a farm with four sisters and one brother. As a sophomore at Atchison County Community High School, Anita met her high school sweetheart Wayne. She graduated in 1971 and shortly after on August 13, 1972, she and Wayne married and began their family.

Wayne and Anita enjoyed traveling and visiting their grandchildren frequently. Anita had a passion for holidays, celebrations, and shopping with family.

Anita worked hard her entire life and was most recently employed as a paraprofessional at Horton Elementary School for over 25 years before her retirement. After retirement, Anita’s primary profession was spoiling her grandchildren. Wayne and Anita were members of the Everest Christian Church, where they attended regularly.

Her brevity, humor, and unwavering passion are what fueled Anita’s bright personality. Anita was never slow to share her opinion, and never missed a daily video chat with her children and eight grandchildren.
