Anita Louise Lazar

October 2, 1946 — July 19, 2023

Anita passed away peacefully with her partner Brian by her side on July 19, 2023 at age 76 in Mission Hills, California.
She was born to Louis and Florence Lazar on October 2, 1946 in Chicago, IL.  As a child, she spent many hours, in all weather, riding her favorite bicycle, which she was surprised with one Christmas morning.  Her high school highlight was a trip to Paris, where she fell in love with the Louvre museum.
After leaving Chicago early in her adult life, she pursued her dreams, moved to Los Angeles and had successful careers in Insurance and Information Technology.
From an early age, Anita loved animals.  As a child, she loved pony rides and in later life owned her own horse her beloved Selene.  She had many dogs throughout her life and loved them all.  Peanut, in particular, became a wonderful road trip companion.
Her mother, Florence, moved from Chicago to live with Anita in California for a short time before Florence herself passed away in 1993.  Anita was very grateful to have had this time together with her mother.
Once retired, Anita together with Brian loved to travel, especially cruising, and over the years visited many countries.  Her favorite city was Paris and her enthusiasm for museums of all kinds never waned.
Through the years Anita kept in touch with her cousins Ron and Sharon.  She had fond memories of her visit to Wisconsin to see Sharon.  Anita was also in touch with and loved her multiple visits with her cousins Debbie and Bob.
Anita is sadly missed and will never be forgotten. 
A funeral service was held at Forest Lawn Cemetery, Hollywood Hills on August 9,  2023.  Rest In Peace.
