Anita Mariam Lang Obituary

Anita Mariam Lang, passed away August 5, 2016, she was 95 years old at the time of her death. Anita was born on February 23, 1921 in Bishop, CA to Fred and Lena Heitman. In 1925, the Heitman family which included two brothers (Ewald and Wilbert) relocated to Meridian, CA where t hey eventually acquired 200 acres of farm ground. Anita married Eddie F. Lang and moved onto the 60 acre property located on Morgan Road in the Meridian area where Anita continued to live until her death. Anita and Eddie had four children: Eddie F. Lang Jr., Lynda G. Lang, Diane Jaeger and Nancy Sandgren.

During Anita's life she encountered many challenges including the Great Depression, four major wars and she lived through four floods, the last of which destroyed her home in 1996. Anita could hardly wait for her new home to be completed and return to the farm that she loved. There were accomplishments that Anita was proud of during her life including landscaping Sutter High School and serving on the grand jury, but nothing compared to the love of being on the farm and the pride in growing things.

Her husband Eddie F. Lang and her daughter Lynda G. Lang preceded her in death.

Lang Jr. (son) and Cheri Lang (his wife), Diane Jaeger (daughter) and Jerry Jaeger (her husband), Nancy Sandgren (daughter) and Steve Sandgren (her husband); grandchildren Eddie F.
