Anita Childers Obituary

Anita June Scott Childers died Monday, April 10, 2017 in Yuba City, CA, at the age of 78. She began life in Big Spring, Texas, but moved to Linda, CA in 1950 with her parents and 6 siblings. She attended Alicia Elementary School, and graduated from Marysville High School in 1957. A year later she married the love of her life, Ben Childers Jr. From this marriage came the birth of two sons, Benjy Childers III and Michael Childers, 10 grandchildren, and 9 great-grandchildren. She was proud to have been married to Ben for almost 50 years. Anita loved her time working for Weight Watchers, and as a Merchandising Manager for JC Penney.

Anita was a lady with big hair and a bigger personality. She was always stylishly dressed, and who would expect anything less with her having been the head of her high school fashion club. She loved people, especially children, and always said that children were like a breath of fresh air. Anita attended Sutter Community Church and felt it was important to lend a helping hand to those who were less fortunate.

Anita is predeceased by her husband, Ben Childers Jr., her parents, Joe and Jewel Scott and all of her siblings.
