Obituary of Anita Louise Salapa
Anita Louise Salapa
Anita was born in Santa Ana, CA. to Felix and Betty Orosco. She attended and graduated from Orange High School in 1969. She found and married her love David P. Salapa in 1984. She is survived by one son, Eric W. Martin, and three grandchildren: Preston, Carter, and Michael Martin. She was the oldest of five, Joann, Diane, Chris, and her brother Felix Victor Orosco. To one she was Mom, to one other she was “Baby-doll,” and to others, she was a rock of strength. She was as fierce as a lioness protector but still gentle as a lamb. Anita was a hairdresser by trade for over 13 years. Worked at Sam’s Club for over 10 years and ended her professional career working in a Pharmacy Drugstore for over 5 years. She passed away on October 10, 2023.
You had such a vibrant energy and brought such joy, life, and love to those around you. You were the bright flashing comet that lit up the sky to everyone who knew you and brought joy to so many. Yet, your light flickered for what seemed like a brief moment. Oh, the memories of that brilliant, beautiful light of life that you sparked in all of our hearts. May we continue to strive to be that light to others and so may you live on in all of our hearts and through our lives as you left your indelible fingerprint on us all. May you rest in peace. Until we see you again. I love you, Mama!
