Dear Family and Friends,

Thank you all, for the overwhelming outpouring of love and kindness, in this time of tragic loss of our beloved Anita. Our hearts are heavy, yet our memories carry us through.

The service will be held on Saturday, February 15, at 10:00 A.M. at Saddleback Church, 1 Saddleback Pkwy, Lake Forest, CA 92630, in the Plaza Room. Please RSVP to Anita’s sister,

Immediately after, there will be a reception, upstairs on the terrace.

And for those who would like to contribute, there will be an opportunity for a small potluck, in the Hawaiian style. Please mention it in the response to Tina.

We have set up an account in the name of “Dreamspirit in memorial of Anita McDonald” at Schools First Credit Union, for supporting those who help the homeless community. Tina has the details on how to contribute.

If you would like to share memories of Anita, there will be time at the end of the ceremony, and during the reception. Please inform Tina in your response.

We hope you can attend this celebration of a life that touched us all.

  1. My sweet beautiful coudin…I am sooo going to miss you. We have been keeping in contact with each other a lot in the the last couple of months and planning family get togethers. When I had my surgery in Aug and was going through my aches and pains you were such a joy to talk to even though you made me nearly bust my stitches by making me laugh. I cherish every moment and memory I have with you. I love you cuz and will miss you so much. Till we meet again…God speed.

    All my love & aloha,
    Your cousin Annette
