    Anita Caffet

    It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Anita Simone Leona Caffet, AKA Neetz, P, Chicken, Anita Vacation, Mama, & Ladybird, on September 27, 2023 at the age of 73. Left to cherish her memory are her daughter, Shari (Jean-Paul); grandson, Cohen of Red Deer, AB; sisters, Jeanette, Paulette, Delphine, Carol, and Sylvia; brothers, John, Robert, and Roland; and numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends. Anita is predeceased by her parents, John and Mary, and sisters, Lucy and Jackie.
    Anita was born in Spiritwood, SK on July 30, 1950, the seventh of eleven children. As a young teenager, she used to spend her babysitting money on new clothes or toys for her younger siblings, rather than herself. As a young adult, she lived in the Northwest Territories, Ontario, and Alberta, where she worked as a telephone operator. After having her daughter, Anita eventually moved to Regina, SK, where she was employed by the province’s power corporation, a company she remained with for the rest of her career. Anita worked hard for everything she ever had and was always able to handle whatever life threw her way.
    Her work led her to Kindersley, Swift Current, Saskatoon, and eventually back to Regina. In addition to her career, she worked tirelessly on several projects, crafts, and hobbies, serving on numerous committees, and serving her community as a volunteer in several ways over the years. A dedicated organizer and lifelong learner, Anita managed to plan numerous class reunions, projects, took several university courses, and conducted extensive family ancestry research, culminating in a trip with sisters Delphine and Carol to Belgium and France. Despite a comically poor sense of direction, Anita was well-travelled, taking numerous trips to several Asian countries. Finally, upon retirement, Anita moved to Medicine Hat where she remained until her passing.
    Unfortunately, Anita’s life was not easy. She was unfairly afflicted with a severe case of bipolar disorder, which greatly affected her personal and professional life from the time she was a teenager. Nevertheless, she was resilient, rebounding time and time again, pulling herself out of so many personal disasters, to ensure her only child was always loved and provided for. As a result of decades of taking the medication needed to manage this disorder, Anita’s kidneys were permanently damaged, and she required painful, regimented dialysis treatment for the last years of her life. As if that weren’t enough, as soon as she was able to retire and enjoy her life as a grandmother, she was struck with Alzheimer’s Disease. However, to see her, you would have no idea she had any ailments at all, as she was one of the happiest, most joyful, and funny people one could ever meet. Children and animals especially loved her. Nieces and nephews could never get enough of her old ‘Hazel’ and Dickie Bird routines, or when she would pull her teeth out and do ‘Popeye’ faces. She was always wanting to care for and help others and would find humour in almost any situation. The inside jokes and hilarious anecdotes are endless. She had even laughed at the above photo of her, noting it would be great for her obituary. Her family has more than a lifetime of loving, joyful memories of her to treasure. We will miss her terribly, but we are so grateful and happy that her suffering is now over.
    The family also extends a special thanks to every single one of the staff at Good Samaritan’s South Ridge Village for the care and love they provided Anita for the past two years, as well as the support of the Hemodialysis Unit at the Medicine Hat Hospital.
    A service honouring Anita’s life will be held at Saamis Memorial Funeral Chapel, 1 Dunmore Road SE Medicine Hat, AB on Thursday, October 12th, 2023 at 11:00 am with Pastor Shane Hein officiating. In lieu of flowers, donations in Anita’s name can be made to the Alzheimer Society of Saskatchewan, 301-2550-12th Avenue Regina, SK S4P 3X1. Condolences may be sent through or to subject heading Anita Caffet.
