It is with great sadness to report that contributing editor, Anita Elliott Worthington, passed away on July 14, 2021, from multiple health issues.
Anita was born in Washington, D.C. on September 3, 1938, and graduated from Marjorie Webster Junior College with an English degree, earned a bachelor’s degree from the University of Utah in 1973, and a Master of Business Administration from Trinity University in 1980. Anita and her husband, Bob, founded Worthington and Worthington Management Consultants, with Anita as president, and she began her professional writing career.
Traveling was one of Anita’s and Bob’s shared passions, and together they flew their aircraft to four countries and landed in every state except Hawaii. Her experience in aviation led her to create and write a column, “The Right Seat,” for a national aviation magazine.
Anita requested that any memorial contributions be made in her honor to Mesilla Valley Hospice, 299 Montana Ave., Las Cruces, NM 88005 or www.mvhospice.org.
