Anita Carson, age 81, of Sylvania, Ohio passed away Thursday evening, June 23, 2022, at The Ebeid Hospice with her loving family at her side. She was born February 4, 1941, to Everett and Josephine Ammons. On March 11, 1962, she married Edward. Anita was a beautician at MaChere and Charles For Hair for many years.
Anita had a zest for life and was truly a “rockstar” fighting to the very end. Her pride and joy in life were her children and grandchildren. If she was not chatting on the phone with family and friends, she would spend her free time baking and reading. She loved planning family gatherings, Mayberry Village parties and events at the Berkey Congregational Church. She enjoyed taking bus trips and vacationing with friends. Recently she was honored with the Gleaner’s community service recognition award for her outstanding volunteer work.
If you were blessed with knowing Anita there is no doubt how strong and positive, she always was. Anita will be dearly missed.
Anita is survived by her children, Gary (Gloria) Carson of Belle Center, OH, Renee (Ken) Wysong of Metamora, OH, and Jack (Mary) Carson of Metamora, OH; grandchildren, Jennifer (James) Ward, Ross Miller, Ashley Herr, Brittany (Dylan) Henricks, Levi Carson, and Olivia Wysong, as well as 6 great-grandchildren. Anita was preceded in death by her parents, her brother, Kay, and husband.
