Anita A. Arsenault, 77, of Berlin, NH passed away surrounded by her family on Tuesday, February 16, 2022, after a long period of illness. She was born in Newport, Vermont on August 26, 1944, the daughter of Raymond and Ella (Landry) Roy, and moved to Berlin at the age of five. Anita attended Notre Dame High School and was a graduate of the Class of 1962. She married her husband Richard Arsenault on November 11, 1967. Prior to her retirement, Anita had been employed as a laboratory technician at the St. Johnsbury, VT hospital, and later at the St. Louis hospital in Berlin. Anita was a member of Good Shepherd Parish.

Anita had a love for animals, and was known to always have cat. She enjoyed spending time with her family, and especially her grandchildren. She was a talented meal planner, and was particularly fond of making pizelles for her family during the holidays. In her younger years, Anita took a cross-country trip with two of her girl-friends, and after visiting 38 states with their camper and canoe, she decided that New England was the best place to live. Anita also enjoyed flowers.
