Hooper, Anita Barbara "Neats"
October 3, 1923 - May 23, 2017
Anita Barbara Hooper, born October 3, 1923, known as ” Neats”, left us on Tuesday, May 23, 2017. Anita fought to be here to the bitter end. Her strong will and determination to go ‘her way’ was Anita’s plan.
Her exceptional love, devotion and caring ways was a gift greatly felt by all. Her love to care and nurture others was her lifetime goal. The love of her life was her husband, Donald, along with her son, Donny. Her biggest fear leaving this world was leaving Donny to care for himself. Now…the struggle is over and she leaves behind; Donnie, her beloved only child and his wife, Michele, who was like a ‘ daughter to her; Rob and Rick, her grandsons, who held a very special place in her heart along with Rick’s wife, Ginger as well as Rob’s girlfriend, Amanda Haag; great grandson, Grayson, the son of Rick and Ginger; Myrna Litten, her close friend and ‘sister’; Mindy Litten, her admired friend; Studley ‘Lala’ and Bentley, the family dogs, who she spoiled rotten giving extra treats and table food whenever no one was looking! In addition to her immediate family, she leaves behind her two great nieces, Erica Young and Nicole Heath, who she nurtured and cared for like a grandmother/mother; and her admired caretakers, Gwendolyn Thomas and Cheryl Lee Waring, who cared and protected her until the end.
Anita is now free and can finally rest in peace beside her beloved husband Donald and reconnect with her mother, Sophie, father, Thomas and brother, Freddy in the heavens above.
Her family and friends will greatly miss her and will never forget the love she gave.💖
Anita will be entombed on Thursday, May 25, 2017 at 12:00 noon in the Mausoleum at Sparkman Hillcrest Memorial Park, 7405 W. Northwest Highway, Dallas, Texas 75225.
