Grandchildren Donovan McGuckin, Justin and wife Erica Horten and their children Oliver and Theodore, Erin Horten, Brian Olaechea and wife Stephanie and their children Aaron Baca, Aubrey, Lucas and Sophia Olaechea, Andrea and husband Richard Serrano and their son Jeremiah Serrano. She is also survived by her two brothers Anthony and Daniel Trujillo, brother-in-law Arthur Garcia, her cousin Philip F. Trujillo and wife Rosita Trujillo.

Trujillo, brother-in-law Bob Ewing, and grandson Jason Horten.
Anita had a long and busy career. Her first job was Secretary/Office Manager for Dr. H. R. Landmann. She served in this capacity for many years before embarking on her next career as Administrative Secretary of the Museum of New Mexico Office of Cultural Affairs. It was there that she met and worked for George Ewing, Director of that office, whom she married after her retirement. Anita was an accomplished artist and it was probably her love for art that encouraged her to pursue her career with the Museum of New Mexico. The family would like to thank Sierra Vista Retirement Community in Santa Fe and Marler Manor in Albuquerque for their loving care and their more than adequate accommodation.
Services are pending with Berardinelli Family Funeral Service.
