Anita Sue Bersaw

Lewiston Morning Tribune Oct 3, 2018

tbd Anita Bershaw of Clarkston passed away Wednesday, Sept. 26, 2018. She was the daughter of Eugene and Ethel Bershaw, born July 1, 1946, in Lewiston. Her favorite childhood memories were her dog, Hank, riding her horse, Hindu, and playing football with her older brothers.

She was a 1964 graduate of Lewiston High School, graduating with low honors. After high school she joined the U.S. Navy, where she was a photographer. Upon completion of her service, she returned to the valley, where she joined the Idaho National Guard and became the first woman member of the National Guard in northern Idaho. She tended bar in nearly every establishment in the valley that served alcohol (she outlived many of the establishments she worked in) and worked at St. Vincent DePaul until her retirement.

Anita was a competitive pool shark, playing in tournaments around the Northwest. She also liked softball, karaoke, crosswords, pinochle, was an avid reader and was a real Beatles freak. She saw The Beatles in concert in Portland. Ringo was her favorite.

She had many nicknames, but most people knew her as “sketter” or “super chicken.”

Her family room was the Clarkston Eagles Lodge, where she was a longtime member. You could always find her there if the Mariners or Seahawks were playing and, actually, even if they weren’t. It is believed most of her wardrobe consisted of team gear. After her quota of adult beverages, her parting words were “See you in the spring!”

She is survived by her daughter, Trina (Jason) Thompson, and granddaughter Kyra Thompson, both of Clarkston; siblings Janice (Wayne) Neace, Bobbie Hayes and brother Mike (Ann) Bershaw and sister-in-law Connie Bershaw; and many nieces, nephews and cousins.

She was preceded in death by her parents; brother Jim Bershaw; and sisters Jeanne, Skip, Jerrie, Joyce and Donna.

A celebration of life will be held from noon to 4 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 13, 2018, at the Clarkston Eagles Lodge.

As Anita would say, “See ya in the spring.”
