Anita Faoro Obituary

Anita Stewart Faoro, 78, was a 1962 graduate of Canon City, CO. Anita was a lifeguard in her teen years. She was a remarkable Cattlewoman whose heart was as soft as her touch, yet strong as steel. She has left a mark on the hearts of all who knew her. With deep sorrow, Anita left this world to join her husband, Lawrence, on March 6, 2024. Anita was not just a dedicated Cattlewoman, but she was an avid quilter and seamstress, a loving mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and horse rider. Her unwavering love created warmth and compassion that resonated through generations. She was united in marriage to Lawrence Faoro on December 22, 1962.

Anita is survived by her daughter, Melinda (Sam) Shade; beautiful granddaughters, Megan (Travis) and Amanda Shade; her lively beautiful great-granddaughters, Bryn and Blake; sister, Janice Rathke, who is as special as Anita and gave her love and comfort; brother, Bubbi; and several nieces and nephews.

Please join the family to celebrate Anita’s life on Thursday, March 14, 2024 at 10 a.m at St. Benedict Catholic Church in Florence, CO.
