Anita Louise Neustupa, of Greenville and formerly of Meadville, passed away Thursday evening, May 11, 2017 in The Grove at Greenville. 

She was born at home in Meadville on June 6, 1918, the second child of John and Anna (Cryz) Husaem.  Anita was a graduate of the Meadville Area High School and Jaqua Cosmetology School in Erie. 

After graduating from beauty school, she was employed as a beautician for Miller's Beauty Shoppe, Meadville and also Miller's in Greenville.  She attended numerous trade shows in the Youngstown area to further her skills during her career.  She opened her own shoppe in 1944 on Cherry Way in Greenville, the first home she and her husband purchased, and she operated her shoppe for over forty years .

Anita married Matthias James Neustupa on July 19, 1941 in St. Brigid's Roman Catholic Church, Meadville. “Mutchie”, as he was fondly nicknamed early in life, preceded her in death on December 28, 1990.  She kept herself busy as a wife, homemaker, and mother in addition to her career in hair styling. 

During her younger years, she enjoyed bowling and was part of a Greenville league, and several times she bowled a perfect score (500).  She also was a member of  “The 39ers” that met at the Greenville Recreation Center weekly for over ten years.  In addition, she belonged to the Greenville Chapter of A.B.W.A and the Polish National Alliance, Meadville. She enjoyed Christmas baking, sewing, various kinds of needlework, gardening, and crafts.  Anita also enjoyed canning fruits and vegetables for her family and delighted in trying out new recipes for them.  Food nutrition fascinated her. 

As a member of St. Michael Roman Catholic Church, Greenville, she was part of the Altar Rosary Society and served as a lunch room mother at St. Michael's Elementary School for years. 

Anita is survived by her children, Irene L. Neustupa and Janet A. Augustine and her husband Gerald, all of Greenville, Diane M. Dischler and her husband Jerry of Moorland, IA and Christine M. Krupski and her husband Leonard of Jacksonville, FL; three granddaughters, Monica L. Straniak, Deanna M. Gerasimek and her husband Gary and Julie A. Rodemoyer; three grandsons, Nicholas Augustine, and Gregory and Daniel Dischler; four great-granddaughters, Stephanie Engstrom and her husband Jason, Stacie Vosler, Emma Augustine and Leslie Dischler; one great-grandson, Giovanni Augustine and two great-great-granddaughters, Chloe Engstrom and Claire Engstrom; numerous nieces and nephews, a sister-in-law; Doris Husaem and a close friend and former neighbor, Mary Ann Cochran. 

Besides her husband and parents, she was preceded in death by two sons, Thomas J. Neustupa and an infant son, Robert Neustupa; three sisters, Helen Callahan, Mary Chaklos and Stella Allen and her only brother, Joseph Husaem.  A very determined and independent woman for her time, Anita will be missed by many.

Memorial contributions may be made to Strayhaven Animal Shelter, 94 Donation Rd., Greenville, PA 16125 or to the American Heart Association, 15120 Collections Drive, Chicago, IL 60693.

Arrangements have been entrusted to Loutzenhiser-Jordan Funeral Home and Cremation Services, Inc., 366-368 S. Main St. Greenville.

    What a difficult time for you to say goodbye to your brother and also your mother. You are in my prayers. These precious family members depended so much on you. You were an example of a true caregiver and a dedicated family member. ……………………..Isaiah 43:2 – When you go through deep water, I will be with you.

    I am truly sorry for your loss, and this is certainly my loss also. I so much enjoyed your mom and the many hours I spent with her. Our trips to the doctor, the bank, the grocery store, and I have so often missed her calling to ask if we could go for ice cream many evenings. We would take our $1.05 to McDonald’s drive through, and sit and chat while we enjoyed our vanilla cones. Then we would go wherever she chose for a drive through town, usually Pamona Park area where she lived and grew up. From there it was usually the Diamond Park to see the Fountain. She loved that fountain. We just parked and looked from the car and chat while we sat. Rhododendron season, we drove through Greendale to see the huge gorgeous Rhododendren blooms. Such nice memories she left for me to think of now and then. Of course, we all know how she she loved making muffins and cookies and she always had a cup of tea waiting for us when I got there. Thank you, girls, for sharing your Mpm with me. May the angels take her to all the lovely places in Heaven that she will enjoy.

    We were saddened to hear of Anita’s death. We lived on North Race street for many years and enjoyed talking “over the back fence” (really across the parking lot) with Anita – and Muchie – about the neighborhood, family, and various reminiscences about Greenville.
