Our beloved Anita Arenholz, 70, wife of James E. Arenholz of Wilton, CT, passed away peacefully after a prolonged illness, Wednesday, October 26th, at Norwalk Hospital.
Anita was born to the late Ralph and Aurora Delgado, May 6, 1941 in the Bronx, NY and lived most of her family life in Darien and Wilton, CT.
While raising her family, Anita went back to school and earned her Bachelor’s degree from the University of CT. Anita spent her life helping others: as a mental health coordinator for Spanish speaking patients at Norwalk Hospital, arranging companion and homemaker services for older adults at Agis, Inc., as a coordinator for Catholic Family & Community Services and providing interpretation services at Norwalk Hospital.
Anita was a loving wife, devoted mother, nurturing grandmother, sister, aunt and friend to many. We will miss her sense of humor, strong will and beautiful smile. The memories she created with all of us will be cherished always and we are grateful to the many people who helped Anita through her struggles and made her days more comfortable.
Anita is survived by her husband James E. Arenholz, three children: Denise Conley of Bridgeport, Michelle Harmon of Bradenton, FL, Stephen Arenholz of Stamford, three grandchildren, sister Adriana Gluck and brother Milton Delgado.
