    Moorhead MnWe are very saddened to hear about the loss of Anita. When a member of anyone in our industry hurts, we all hurt. Anita and her fellow workers at TRN was always most willing to accommodate the many changes and quirks getting the closings to the end.

    Hold all your memories close to your hearts and blessings to all of Anita’s family.

    Becky and Richard

    I had the great privilege of working with Anita at TRN Abstract & Title. She was a wonderful co-worker and person. She was always pleasant to be around and was always there to answer any question that you may have. Her tasty treats were always welcomed at the office and to this day I still have recipes that she shared with us. She will be greatly missed by many. Rest in Peace Anita.

    Anita was a former co-worker of mine at First Dakota Title / TRN Abstract and she was truly an amazing lady. She taught me so many things in the real estate industry and I have appreciated everything I learned from her. She was such a sweet person and I enjoyed working with her so much. She always talked so highly of her kids and family and I am so sorry for their loss. I will continue to keep them in my prayers. She was truly amazing.

    My sympathies to the family of Anita. I knew Anita when her family lived in Mayville for a short time. She was a wonderful person and a good friend.

    Anita and I worked togehter at First Dakota Title/TRN for over 12 years. She was our “Martha Stewart” in the office. When we had pot luck or new baby or wedding celebrations we all looked forward to Anita’s contribution. The food was always so new to us, tasty, and beautifully presented. We always felt so special when she shared her kichen wonders! Her talented crafts and sewing were amazingly beautiful. She was an incredibly talented and giving person. Anita was our ‘rock’ in the title insurance department, a very knowledgable, pleasant, dedicated employee. We all knew we could always count on Anita! We have missed Anita in the office these many months while she battled her illness. She will be missed by all who knew her. Rest in peace dear friend.

    West Fargo Anita and I were co-workers at JoAnn’s for about two years. I was always happy when we got to work the same shift because she was pleasant , caring and ambitious. We looked forward to seeing her latest creations. I remember a black leather look motorcycle outfit that she made for a dog. It was adorable. My condolences to Anita’s family at the loss of such a dear person.

    Fargo I’m so sorry for the loss Anita. She was truly an amazing person. She was always great to work with when an order for ‘title insurance’ was needed through TRN Abstract and Title. She was also a great help while she worked at Joann Fabrics. She was so talented and soft spoken, I will truly miss her as a friend that I have gotten to know over the years. I will miss you Anita..God Bless and I know you are being held in God’s hands now to ease the pain and suffering. Jodi Deplazes

    St Joseph MnAnita was a co-worker of mine at First Dakota Title/TRN, but more than that, she was a wonderful friend. It was so easy to be with Anita. There was always laughter involved with her in the group. We had lots of good times along with our daily work, which she did with efficiency and dedication. She talked proudly of her family and I will keep them in my prayers at this very difficult time. I’m sorry for this tragic loss of a wonderful friend.

    Hazelhurst WII first met Anita while dating her brother Lloyd, my husband. Lloyd and I had gone to the Bakken home to visit. Anita and her younger sisters, Becky and Patty, were to share their room with me. They were all so cute, but Anita, being oldest was in charge of my accommodations! They had cleaned their room so it shone. Anita must have been about 13 @ the time. She and her sisters shared all kinds of school and friend information. Anita was a bit embarrassed by Patty, about age 6, for sharing information that she didn’t deem important enough or maybe too personal.

    My first and only trip to the Grand Canyon included Anita and her son Justin. Tyler was a baby and stayed with Gr’ma and Gr’pa in Phoenix while Lloyd, our children, Anita, Justin, and I had our journey. Anita was a great photographer and had a good camera so shared wonderful pictures from our time at the Grand Canyon. Anita was so generous with her photographs. Many times after being together we would receive great photos of the event including great pictures of our children I didn’t even know she had taken.

    Anita was a talented seamstress and made the most beautiful bags for me to give as presents, and blankets for us to give as gifts to friends and babies. All winter we sleep under a Green Bay Packer blanket she made me when we moved to WI. Her presentation was as stunning as she. All were wrapped in beautiful ribbons and tied with lovely bows. I still have some extras ready for giving. But, they will be saved for my grandchildren if I should be so lucky.

    I will miss her texts, her calm voice at the other end of the line, her neatly penned notes, and mostly knowing she will not be at the next family event. I was blessed by a wonderful sister-in-law. Thank you Anita for your kindness.

    Blessings to Mike, Justin, Tyler, and Lacey today and forever.
