Obituary

Anita Petrosky, age 88, of Albuquerque, New Mexico, passed away on Tuesday, August 16, 2022, following a stroke. She was born on March 26, 1934, in Bellingham, Massachusetts, the tenth of eleven children to the late Stephen and Efrosena (Wrona) Petrosky. After moving to New York City to work, Anita's independent spirit led her to join the United States Foreign Service. She proudly served her country as Personnel Officer and Administrative Assistant in various postings throughout the world, including Iran, West Berlin, Argentina, South
Korea, Barbados, Geneva, Zimbabwe, and Portugal. She also shared her interest in other countries and cultures with family and friends back home, sending frequent postcards, letters, and gifts to her siblings' children and grandchildren.
On retiring in 1994, she chose to settle in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and brought her verve and sense of inquiry to the Southwest, learning about local cultures and traditions and building a wide network of friends. She continued to enjoy travel and gardening until her health made these activities challenging, and she sustained a vibrant social life. She is predeceased by siblings, Nicholas, Marjorie, Sophie, Minnie, Stephen, Olga, Helen, Joseph, Elizabeth, and Paul. She is survived and is fondly remembered by friends and a wide extended family, especially the many nieces, nephews, great-nieces, and great-nephews who admired her
adventurous spirit.
Family and friends would like to thank the people at Palmilla Senior Living, Beehive Homes, and Heartland Hospice who provided care and comfort for Anita in her final days.
A celebration of her life will be held for family and friends at 2:00 pm on Saturday, September 24, 2022, at Northdale Baptist Church, 123 Osuna Rd NW, Albuquerque NM 87107.
