Anita Doreen Krebs, 78, Warsaw, passed away at 9 a.m. on Tuesday, March 17, 2020, at Miller’s Merry Manor of Warsaw.
She was born on Oct. 6, 1941, at Wolf Lake, to Violet Audrey (Harlan) Anders and Homer Russel Anders. On Aug. 26, 1960, she was married to Eddie Eugene Krebs. They shared 59 years of marriage together before he passed away on October 10, 2019.
Anita was a 1960 graduate of Pierceton High School. She worked for six years at Ace Hardware in Warsaw and many came to know her as being their Avon Lady for over 25 years. She proudly worked various jobs throughout her life and there wasn’t anything that she wouldn’t try her hand at. Anita worked at different factories like Jomac Gloves in Warsaw, did retail at Harvey’s, was a waitress at the Candy Cane Restaurant, and was a custodian at Hulls Transfer. She was ready to do anything she needed to help raise her family. When she wasn’t working, she loved being a den mother for the Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts, enjoyed volunteering her time with Meal on Wheels and the American Red Cross. Anita was a past member of Warsaw Church of God and had been attending Warsaw Community Church. Anita lived a full life and showed her love for her family in everything she did for them. She will be dearly missed.
She will be lovingly remembered by her daughter: Lori Riley, Warsaw; son: Kevin Eugene Krebs, Warsaw; granddaughter: Jennifer (Matthew) Craig, High Point, N.C.; great-grandson: Elias Craig, High Point, N.C.; and two brothers: Jerry Anders, Pierceton; Alan (Wanda) Anders, Pierceton. She was preceded in death by her parents, husband, and two half-sisters.
Anita’s life will be celebrated with a private funeral service on Tuesday, March 24, at Redpath-Fruth Funeral Home, 225 Argonne Road, Warsaw, and officiated by Pastor Ronnie Patrick and Pastor Jamy Gregory. Burial will follow with a graveside service at Oakwood Cemetery of Warsaw. There will be time for visiting prior to the service from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. with her service at 1 p.m.
