Shelly and family, Even though we did not get to meet your mom, we felt that we got to know her through you. You can feel so proud about the wonderful things people are writing about her and what a wonderful example of a Christian woman she was. You and your sister are her living legacies--and we know you made a difference in our lives! We are here for you.

I cannot believe we have lost Anita. She was one of my closest friends in high school, college, and later life. We shared many memorable experiences. She was so talented and beautiful. She was our homecoming queen, varsity cheerleader, and all round school supporter. Her passing is a real tragedy. I will miss her. There are no words to console Dick, Shawn, and Shelly. Treasure the memories. She has found rest.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Mrs. Tennant was just the most special woman. She always remembered me and my son's..by name, even if i had not seen her in years. She always had a smile on her face. I first met her at Small World Nursery School and she was such a wonderful director and the kids all loved her. I will remember her best though with the love and pride she showed when she talked about her girls and grandchildren. Evie Lucas.

Dear Tennant Family and Friends: I have known Anita for a long time. What a wonderful person! A wonderful Wife and Mom! A Wonderful Grandma and Great Grandma! A great friend! I just loved her so much. She was always happy to see you. She was our organizer! LOL I have to laugh at that because she was always so funny organizing everything and we just listened to what she told us to do. She never missed a beat thats for sure. She was a vibrant lady and so loved for the kind, generous and thoughtful and loving person she was. I will so miss her, miss her smile, miss her friendship. God doesn't tell us how long we will stay here on Earth, he only promises everlasting life and peace with him. I truely believe that Anita resides in his Kingdom and there she has met up with my Dad (Jerry McCann)and has organized everything for us so when we get there, there will be no waiting -- her and Jerry will be our greeters and we will once again be reunited and our circle will be complete. Love, Judy

Shelly, We were very sorry to hear about your mom. Our prayers are with you. She was one of the nicest ladies and we enjoyed the times together chatting with her at your house when we were in Pt.
