Born on Aug. 3, 1941 in Epsom (London) England to the late Fred and Alice Jonas (Morden, England), Anita was a gifted cook, baker and seamstress, but her passion was her garden.

In 1965, after finishing her studies in England, she headed out on holiday to Nova Scotia. Once she arrived she fell fast in love with Canada and her soul mate, Bill (or William when he was in trouble) After retirement from the NS Provincial Government, she spent her time bowling, swimming and enjoying Starbucks dates with her friends. Bill and Anita traveled back to England many times, and recently enjoyed the retirement life Cruising and in the Caribbean. Anita deeply loved her family and she found immense joy every time the family gathered. She is survived by her devoted husband, Bill & son Gary (Terry Lynn). She will be deeply missed by her Granddaughters, Justine (Adam), Erica (Shawn) and Rebecca; the sunshine of her life, Great-granddaughter Maddie, and adored Great-Grandsons Breton and Shawn; her son in law Frank Cowie, brother Terry (Marion) Jonas, in-laws Lorraine, Donna ( Cookie), Ritchie, Barry and John; several nieces and nephews.
