Anita Devine Obituary

Anita J. Devine

July 4, 1946 - August 19, 2012

Resident of San Jose, CA

Anita Juliette Devine made her peaceful transition unexpectedly while recovering from gallbladder surgery. She was 66 years young. Her enormous circle of friends, family, colleagues, and clients will miss her dearly.

Anita was born, the oldest of five, in Detroit, Michigan, to her parents Dorothy and Ira. She is survived by brothers, John and Jeff, sisters, Maureen and Margot. Anita began her life-long career as a legal secretary in Detroit. She then relocated to Washington, D.C., and finally, she moved to California, where most recently she worked at the San Jose firms of Shea and McIntyre, and before then, Gates Eisenhart Dawson. Anita also had a thriving counseling and hypnotherapy practice during her evenings and weekends. She was also licensed clergy, routinely performing weddings for friends and clients.

Anita shared many gifts, among them her unwavering passion to help others. She was a fiercely loyal and devoted friend to countless many. And she was a great cook as well, always a delicious dish in hand when invited over for a meal.

A Celebration of Anita's life is scheduled on Saturday, September 29, 2012, from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m. at Riconada Hills Club, 100 Avenida Del Sol, Los Gatos, CA.
