Anita Latona Prula of West Pittston entered into eternal rest Dec. 3, 2018, following a brief illness.

Anita was born in Pittston on April 11, 1928, to the late Joseph and Christine Montione Latona. She was educated in Pittston Area Schools and graduated from Pittston Area High School in 1946.

Anita married the love of her life, the late Joseph Prula, on May 12, 1958. Anita and Joe cherished 49 years of marriage, before his death in 2008.

Anita worked in the garment industry for many years before her retirement.

Anita was well known for her baking talents, sharing many old world Sicilian recipes with her family and friends; she enjoyed traveling with her late husband, Joe; and, in her later years, Anita was active with the Pittston Senior Center.

Steadfastly devoted to her Catholic faith, Anita was a life-long member of Immaculate Conception Church at Corpus Christi Parish.

In addition to her parents and her husband, Joseph, Anita was preceded in death by her brother, Philip Latona, in 2018.

Anita is survived by her two sons, Joseph, Covington Twp., and Charles, Exeter.

The family would like to thank Anita's loving friends for their unwavering support, which fulfilled her wishes to stay in her home: Jaz; Susie, JJ, and Brady; Bob and Cookie; her devoted goddaughter, Angela; and to Dr. Charles Manganiello, for his care and compassion shown to Anita over the years.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the West Pittston Library.

Funeral services will be held at the convenience of the family.

Arrangements are entrusted to Anthony Recupero Funeral Home, West Pittston.
