Anita L. O’Hara

June 08, 1925 ‒ January 26, 2017

Lexington, Ohio

Anita Louise O’Hara passed away Thursday, January 26, 2017 in her home after a long struggle with Alzheimer’s. She was 91.

She was born June 8, 1925 to parents Tedziano & Natalina (Nardi) Stefanacci-Stevens in Aliquippa, Pennsylvania. After Anita graduated from Aliquippa High School with the class of 1943, she met Edward C. O’Hara and the pair soon married on June 4, 1949.

Anita worked as the bookkeeper for Edward’s business Areo-Kleen, where she worked for over 20 years until retiring in 1982.

In spare time, she took pleasure in being active in the First Presbyterian in Lexington and crocheting. But above all, Anita cherished spending time with her grandchildren.

She is survived by her daughter and son-in-law Debra and Michael J. Greter; her 3 grandsons Adam (Fiancé Rhiannon Lewis) Greter, Brandon (Leonarda) Greter, and Collin Greter; great granddaughter Evelyn Adrian Greter.

In addition to her loving husband Edward C. O’Hara, she was preceded in death by her parents; sisters Angeline Colonna and Lena Pellegrini; brothers Amerigo, Louis, James, Julius, Albert, Eugene, Emelio and a very special niece and nephew John and Ann DiCioccio.

The family wishes to extend their gratitude to the wonderful caregivers of Care Companions and to a very special caregiver Loretta Stone who had cared for Anita for years and to the OhioHealth Hospice Staff.

Although no public service will be held per Anita’s wishes, her family hopes that you will hold her in your heart as you remember her in your own special way.
