Anita Kiker

September 23, 1940 - December 9, 2019

Anita Mae Ramos Kiker, 79, of Fannett, died Monday, December 9, 2019. She was born on September 23, 1940, in Beaumont, Texas.   Her parents Ralph and Irene Ramos raised three beautiful, smart, strong, and loving daughters, Rita, Anita, and Lolita. Anita was the last surviving Ramos sister.

Anita graduated from French High School in 1958 and then entered North Texas State in Denton, Texas.   She had a long career in state and county government which included:Texas Liquor Control Board, Judge Jack Cravy, Judge Harold Engstrom, Judge Ken Dollinger and Texas State Parks and Wildlife.  She was instrumental in establishing the Women’s Auxillary of the Labelle Fannett Fire Department, a past CYO leader, and was involved in numerous other volunteer organizations.

She met the love her life at Pine Tree Lodge in Labelle, Texas.   Most of her friends never thought this marriage would last, her being a city girl and Homer a farmer.   They proved them wrong and created many beautiful memories over their fifty-four years together.   Homer, her husband, reminiscing has repeatedly said, “they weren’t only lovers, but best friends”.   From annual trips to Fredericksburg for peaches and evening rides looking at cows, they truly enjoyed each other’s company.

Survivors include her husband of fifty-four years, Homer Glenn Kiker, of Fannett; son, Glenn Kiker, whom she adored and his wife, Lindsey, of Fannett; beloved grandchildren, Stone Kiker, of Fannett, and Ferrell Kiker, of San Marcos who were blessed to call her “NiNi” and whom she spoiled her with her love; numerous nieces and nephews; and great-nieces and nephews. She served as her grandchildren’s personal banker and was their biggest supporter!

She was preceded in death by her parents and sisters, Rita Alford and Lolita Ramos; and niece, Melanie Nunez.

Anyone who entered Anita and Homer’s home could be guaranteed good drinks and stories.   They loved the time spent with friends and loved ones gathered around the yellow kitchen table.   

Anita’s niece, Melanie Nunez preceded her in death and the family knows that Anita has been met with one heck of a party in heaven and questions of, “what took you so long?”

Anita will be dearly missed by her loved ones.   Anita and Homer’s marriage was a true example of the vows, “in sickness and in health”.

The family would like to thank  EthelMae Meyer, Lisa Rio, Nauwasa Lewis, and Mathilda Royal for their loving and devoted care to Anita.

A Christian Vigil for Mrs. Kiker will begin at 6:00 p.m., with a gathering of family and friends to follow, Wednesday, December 11, 2019, at Broussard’s, 2000 McFaddin Avenue, Beaumont.
