IN LOVING MEMORY OF ANITA POST….
Most of you have known our dear member, Anita Post, over the many years she was a member of our support group. It is
with great sadness to inform you she recently passed away with her family by her side. She had a bad fall, falling backwards
and hitting her head, and was taken immediately into hospice. She remained there close to three weeks and had rebounded
somewhat, though suddenly spiraled downward and passed peacefully on April 8, 2019.
Anita was born on October 4, 1947 and was a wonderful wife to her husband, Harvey, and a great
mother to her two daughters, Wendy and Marla and loved the joy of being a grandmother. Her career was being a preschool
teacher. She loved to laugh, had a great sense of humor, always had a smile on her face and always thought of other
Anita got polio in her upper torso. She
suffered from complications of post-polio syndrome and put up a strong fight for many years. Anita never felt sorry for herself.
Once she had rods placed in her back, she suffered with a great deal of pain. Years back, as a member of our group,
Anita was quite active in the early 90’s, helped with the newsletter and was involved in many of its activities, as
well as being a member of the ladies’ group (the Ya-Ya’s) a couple decades ago who met monthly.
Anita will be deeply missed by our entire support group, as well
as all who knew her, though she remains in our hearts always. Our polio group has sent a donation to Western Reserve
in Medina, a charity the family requested in her memory. - Brenda Ferguson
