Born in Ludlow, daughter of the late Norman and Delina (Gagne) Sorrell, she was a lifelong resident, a 1951 graduate of Ludlow High School and a faithful communicant of St. Elizabeth Parish.

Anita’s family wishes to extend a special thank you to the staff of Life Care Center of Wilbraham, especially her nurse Fran, for the exceptional care and compassion they provided to her.
