Died Feb. 11, 2013
Anita G. McDaniel (nee Schlief), 51, of Clearwater, Fla., formerly of Hudson, passed peacefully on Feb. 11, 2013, at Sun Coast Hospice, after courageously battling leukemia and esophageal cancer.
A Celebration of Life benefit will be held for her two adopted daughters, Leighanne, 14, and Melissa, 7, at the home of her brother, Thomas, 1037 Hwy 35 N., Hudson, on Saturday, Aug. 24. A gathering of friends and family will take place from 10 a.m.-12 p.m. with special words of remembrance spoken at 11:30 a.m. All are welcome to join us as we embark on a tribute tour of the Leinenkugel Brewery in Chippewa Falls, returning at 5 p.m. for what Anita enjoyed most with her friends: grilling great food, cold beverages, and a large bonfire. In lieu of flowers, memorial gifts to her two daughters, in care of their guardians, Cyndy and Von Brissenden, are greatly appreciated.
