(Nee Junghans) Entered Peacefully into Eternal Life on Thursday, August 30, 2018.  Age 91.  Beloved wife of Emerich Schenk who preceded her into death. Loving and Cherished mother of Gordon (Mary). Special Aunt to John (Valerie), and to grandniece Kristen (Ben).

The essence of Anita was devotion to family, friends and God.  She was a gentle, loving, caring and kind person, always putting her others before herself.  Anita was an amazing cook for many years, made fabulous desserts and cookies and became known as “Mrs. Santa Claus” by those who knew her. Anita enjoyed being around many great and wonderful friends from Germany and from Wisconsin and there was, in earlier times, never a lack of wonderful get togethers and parties to celebrate life.

Adored grandma of Thorr, Donner and Blitz (Gordon and Mary’s Dogs) who waited patiently for Marmalade Toast on either side of her chair when she would visit.  Anita is preceded in death by her parents, Paula and Max; sister, Isle; and brothers, Dieter and Martin.
