Newark - Anita Louise DeNardo, age 83, of Newark, DE formerly of Dobbs Ferry, NY, passed away peacefully on September 7, 2020 at home surrounded by family.

Anita graduated from Dobbs Ferry High School in 1955. She was a homemaker for her family while also cutting hair in her basement salon. She was an active member of her local church, Our Lady of Perpetual Help, in Ardsley and the Dobbs Ferry Embassy Club. She enjoyed being part of her children's activities and took great pride and joy ensuring that there was a home-cooked meal served each night and that the cake tin was never empty.
Upon retirement, Anita and Pat moved to Newark, DE to be closer to family. The two enjoyed vacationing in their motorhome up and down the East Coast and spent winters in Fort Myers, FL. Anita was an active member of St. Margaret of Scotland Church, Newark Senior Center and Red Hat Society. She participated in clubs and groups within those organizations and always showed up to gatherings with at least one homemade goodie. She took joy in serving others by making bears for Hospice, quilts for veterans, dresses for church mission trips to Haiti and stockings for soldiers.
Anita enjoyed and took great pride in watching all of her grandchildren participate in school and sports activities and felt very fortunate to meet her only great grandchild. She also loved attending UD sporting events.
