STEPHENVILLE—Funeral services will be held at 11 a.m. Friday, March 31, at the Stephenville Funeral Home Chapel. Interment will follow at West End Cemetery. The family will receive friends at 10 a.m. on Friday before the service.

Anita was born to the late W. T. Thompson and Bonnie VonRoeder Thompson in Snyder, Texas. She married the love of her life, Jackie Lee Head, on Jan. 3, 1963, in Snyder.  

She was a homemaker most of her life and always stayed busy. She was extremely creative and talented and operated her own cake decorating business for many years. Her most beloved job, however, was being a loving wife and mother to her three children and being active in their lives. 

She has been a resident of Stephenville for the last 18 years and worked in the bakery at Walmart for many of those years. To know Anita was to love her.

Survivors include her husband of 54 years, Jackie Lee Head; children, Kristi Washington and husband, Tommy, of Stephenville; Kerri Head of Midland, Texas; and Douglas Head and wife, Beth, of Thayne, WY; grandchildren, Connor Washington of Houston, Texas, and Hailee Pepper of Midland; and siblings, Jerry Brooks and wife, Sharon, of Yantis, Texas; Gary Brooks and wife, Tomibeth, of Weatherford, Texas;  Janie Sue Hall and husband, Tom, of Abilene, Texas; and Barb Mansur and husband, Bruce, of Dripping Springs, Texas.

Anita was preceded in death by a granddaughter, Kylee Pepper.
