Anita Wrede went home peacefully to her God on April 7, 2022. She was born in Wuppertal, Germany before the outbreak of World War II. Despite the ravages and deprivation caused by that conflict that she suffered as a child, she became a renowned singer who sang opera on the stage for ten years in Germany.
In 1971 she married her late husband, Ken Wrede, and moved with him to Warner Robins. Though she no longer sang professionally, Ken encouraged her to pursue and develop her talent at painting. She was an accomplished artist whose paintings grace many private homes and Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Warner Robins.
Her desire to sing was reawakened when a parishioner at Sacred Heart encouraged her to join the choir. She sang with the choir for 25 years, her beautiful voice enhancing every hymn the choir sang.
After living in Warner Robins for almost 50 years, in 2019 she moved to Lookout Mountain with her friends, Harry and Lindsey Skinner. She had so enjoyed the mountains of Europe (many of which she had hiked on in her younger years) and she was delighted to be living on a mountain, something that had been in her dreams.
Anita will be greatly missed by all who love her. She was a kind and generous person who reached out in many ways to make life a joy for those around her.
Visitation will be from 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. on Tuesday, April 12, followed by the funeral Mass at 11:00 a.m. at Sacred Heart Church, 300 South Davis Drive, Warner Robins, GA 31088. Msgr. Fred Nijem will officiate. Inurnment will take place at Magnolia Park cemetery following the Mass.
