February 12, 1953 - January 18, 2021
Anita Jeanne (Robinson) Karafa Poplawski Age 67, of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, departed her loving family on Monday, January 18, 2021. Anita was born in Pittsburgh, on February 12, 1953 to Jeanne and David Robinson, the middle child of seven. Her brothers, Kenneth, Robert, David; and her sister, Joy; and her late husbands, Joseph Karafa and Edward Poplowski, were anxiously awaiting their reunion in heaven. Anita raised her children with love and devotion in Pittsburgh with her loving husband Thomas. She was all about family, adored her grandchildren, loved cooking, playing games and cards, reading, and most of all laughing. Lin-Manuel Miranda wrote "What is a Legacy? It's planting seeds in a garden you'll never get to see." While that is true for most of us, some of us get to stick around long enough to watch those seeds begin to sprout. Anita was one of those privileged few. She got to watch as her children and her grandchildren began to plant the seeds of their own legacies, and to watch all of the people she loves grow into their own amazing individuals. While it is hard to leave off in the middle of a journey, it's safe to say that for all the steps to come in all of our journeys, she will be there to watch over us forever, wherever our paths may lead. Our love and memories for her are what will carry on her legacy. Anita is survived by her loving husband, Thomas Poplawski; daughters, Melissa Karafa Kaczorowski, and Jennifer Joy Geist; step-daughter, Carla Jane Scott; step-son Stephen Karafa; sisters, Mary Martin and Rebecca Van Noy. She was a grandmother to Hannah Hummel, Jacob Geist, Kennedy Kaczorowski, Caden Kaczorowski, Finnegan Kaczorowski, and Abigail Scott. In lieu of a funeral at this time, a memorial service will be held in the spring when a tree will be planted with her ashes in celebration of Anita's wonderful life.
