Anita Acosta

June 17, 1932 — March 7, 2023

Fort Stockton, Texas

On March 7th, 2023, at the age of 90, Anita R. Acosta passed away peacefully surrounded by family.  Anita was a loving mother to a son and three daughters, but throughout her life was surrounded by many children, including her grandchildren and the children she babysat for. She was loved immensely by all her babies.

Anita was a fabulous baker and cook.  We remember her cinnamon rolls, lemon meringue pies and her unforgettable mouthwatering biscochos. She was also well known for making the very best asaderos.  Anita had what many called her magic bowl.  It did not matter if there were 4 or 10 people, everyone ate until they were full.

Anita treasured her children’s education and served as a room mother. She would lovingly sit at the dinner table helping her children do homework and prepare for exams. Being a spiritual woman, she was very involved in her church and, more importantly, made sure that her children and grandchildren received their sacraments

Anita is survived by her children, Roy Acosta, Cruz Rodriguez, Esther Chavez and Lora Olivas.  Her grandchildren, Brenda Burnett, Nacole Killian, Matthew Yant, Erica Hernandez, Morgan Daily, LRoy Acosta, Crystal Uris, Nanca Rodriguez, Rudy Allison Rodriguez, Lori Rodriguez, Kori Chavez, Rico Chavez, Brandie Torres, Megan Olivas and 30 Great-grandchildren.

Anita was preceded in death by her husband, Alpidio Acosta, her grandma- Guelita Maria and Myrna Shea her granddaughter.
