Born in Gig Harbor, Washington on March 6, 1916, Anita was the daughter of Gig Harbor pioneers, Lloyd and Anna Hunt. Her father and uncle operated the "Mosquito Fleet" boats throughout the Puget Sound when travel by boat was necessary for both passengers and provisions to the growing harbor communities. She attended Gig Harbor High School and received a full scholarship to Washington State College.
Anita Hunt married Albert Russell Sieber in Tacoma in 1935 and was a devoted wife, widowed for 21 years. They raised their family in Bremerton. She was a life long member of the Gig Harbor Methodist Church which her grandmother formed.
Survivors include one daughter, one son, three granddaughters and three great-grandsons, all Washington residents.
Family graveside services only, at Artondale Cemetery of Gig Harbor, planned for spring. Memorial gifts made to Children's Hospital of Seattle, or Washington State University Scholarship Fund.
Anita let her light shine by enhancing the lives of others.
Arrangements are under the care of Kern Funeral Home.
