Anita grew up in Brooklyn, NY enjoying Coney Island, running into movie stars and working in New York City. Anita was attending a dance in New York where she met her husband, Joseph Thomas Dixon. They immediately liked each other and married on October 15, 1955. Anita set up home in New York until Joe was discharged from US Navy in 1957. From there they moved to the Washington, DC area and then to PG county where they finally settled in Clinton in 1968. Anita loved being a wife, mom, grandmother, daughter, aunt and friend.

Anita loved shopping, talking with her kids daily, watching Jeopardy, going to casinos, cruising on a big ship with Joe and their friends, talking on the phone, going out to dinner and just hanging out with her family.
