Anita Larie Marable, 77, died November 28, 2020 in Sherman, TX. She was born in Osceola, IA on February 5, 1943 to Marvin Horace Dunfee and Mildred May Smith Dunfee.
Anita grew up on a farm and was the youngest of two girls. As a child, she loved to ride the tractor and could always be found helping around the property. She loved to dance, sing and played high school basketball.
Her unwavering love for the Lord began as a child, so it was no surprise that Anita met the love of her life, Clint Byron Marable, at Church in Sherman, TX. Together they raised their family in a beautiful home built from the ground up on 28 acres.
Anita spent most of her career working in Accounting and was great with numbers. She loved the Lord, her family, friends, singing, decorating, taking family photos, gardening, shopping, and of course, spoiling her 5 grandkids.
Together with her husband, she instilled a set of core values in family and friends that will live on through the legacy they created. She truly saw the good in everyone and had a heart to give and help. She was a faithful member of Victory Life Church in Sherman.
Anita is survived by her children, Dale Marable and his wife Joanna, of Sherman, TX and April Wallace and her husband Andrew, of Prosper, TX; grandchildren, Clay Marable of Little Rock, AR, Emma Hyslip and her husband Chance of Luella, TX, Carmen Moreno of Sherman, TX, Austin and Hunter Wallace of Prosper, TX; sister, Patricia Palmer and her husband Don of Odessa, TX
She was preceded in death by her parents, husband and two children, Rodger and Rodney.

How we will miss them. God bless you Dale and April and your families with His peace that passes all understanding.
I am in shock! When we couldn’t get ahold of Clint or Anita, we started searching and found this. Clint was a friend from when he was stationed in San Diego in the early sixties. He was best man in my wedding and like a big brother. Through the years he would give me a call just to catch up. After my Wayne passed he’d check up on me to be sure I was doing okay. I was so happy when he found his Anita. It was good to see him so happy and proud of his family. My heart goes out to you all. I know their passing leaves a big hole in your lives. May God’s arms of comfort surround you!
I still miss my dear sweet sister-friend one year later. No one will ever replace the way Anita wrapped me in her loving heart.
