She went home to be with her Lord on Nov. 24, after a 15-year long courageous battle with breast cancer.
When her disease reoccurred in 2004, Anita became active in the American Cancer Society by being involved in the Relay for Life. She was also certified by the American Cancer Society in their Reach for Recovery, where she could visit with newly diagnosed cancer patients.
Pullen and two friends started the Circle of Hope care group and through the American Cancer Society, she established the "Free Wig Program” in the Highland Lakes area. During her own battle with cancer, Pullen focused her energy and life to helping other cancer patients and their families.
She is preceded in death by her parents, and son Aaron Atwood. She is survived by her husband Don Pullen of Highland Haven; brother Raymond Mosteller of Temple City, Calif.; sister Alice Wright of Austin; son Terrence Atwood and wife Melissa of Kennewick, Wash.; daughter Catherine Frailey and husband James of Marble Falls; step-daughters Sandra Still and husband Ray of New Braunfels, and Becky Staggs and husband Paul of Conroe; grandchildren Wyatt Frailey, Dylan Frailey, Mitchell Still, Emily Leykum and Lydia Basinski; and great-grandson Jaycen Basinki.
