December 19, 1935 - December 22, 2021
Anita L. Ellerbrock, age 86 of Monroe, passed away Wednesday, December 22, 2021 surrounded by family at home. She is remembered for her saintly love, generosity and devotion to family and community.

She married Donald D. Ellerbrock at Toledo’s Rosary Cathedral Catholic Church on July 2, 1955. Together, they raised five children. Anita was a member of St. Mary Catholic Church where she co-founded its Religious Education Pre-school Program and, later in life, volunteered for St. Vincent de Paul Society. She was also a member of the Red Hat Society and the American Sewing Guild. Anita is survived by her devoted husband of 66 years, Don; five children: Beth (Dennis) Bidwell of Morgantown, WV, Sondra (Jeffrey) Pulter of Monroe, John (Karen) Ellerbrock of Escondido, CA, David Ellerbrock of Warner Robins, GA, and Amy (Brett) Hughes of Palm Harbor, FL; a brother, Nelson Hagerman of Swanton, OH; two sisters, Bonnie Markley of Delta, OH and Linda Doyle of Swanton, OH; four grandsons: Joseph (Christie) Bidwell, James (Joelleen) Bidwell, Matthew Pulter, and Adam Pulter; and four great-grandchildren. In addition to her parents, Anita was also preceded in death by a son and a daughter. Family and friends may visit from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 26th at Bacarella Funeral Home, 1201 S.
