Anita M. Davila, 84 years of age, entered eternal rest on Monday, January 15th 2018 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
Anita was born on June 25th 1933 to the late Clemente Moreno and Julia Mungia in Laredo, Texas. After living in Laredo, Texas and some parts of Dallas, Texas for several years of her life she migrated to Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Upon settling in Milwaukee, Anita began her career as a caretaker for young children in the city of Milwaukee at Day Care Services for Children. Her compassion and excellence in her career earned her an award for these efforts in 1991. Later in life after her career ended she became a homemaker while caring for several of her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Her happiest moments were spent surrounded by family and friends simply sharing her morning coffee and chisme or celebrating birthdays, holiday, and numerous important life milestones. She will forever be remembered by her boisterous laugh, contagiously beautiful smile, glamorous sense of fashion and impeccable party planning skills.
Her legacy will continue to live on through her surviving family members, children; Elsa Torres, Yolanda Amaya, Laura Hernandez, Alicia Ferreira, Mario Davila, Priscilla Davila, her siblings; Juan Moreno and Graciela Mares, her grandchildren; Richard Torres Jr., Ana Torres-Garcia (Jose), Ismael Cruz Jr., (Angelique), Jose Cervantes, Leo Davila (Priscilla), Becky Saavedra, Melissa Hernandez (Hector), Jessica Saavedra-Bautista (Renee), Noe Saavedra, Jose Aguirre, Jennifer Aguirre (David), Alex Hernandez, Crystal Hernandez, Mari-Janet Cortez de Dominguez, Mireya Ferreira, Casulita Davila, Mario Davila Jr. (Mary), Vanessa Davila, Bobby Davila, Zachary Davila, Roberto Juarez Jr., Gabriel Juarez, Jillyza Diaz, Jayloreen Diaz, forty two great-grandchildren and one great great-grandchild.
