Anita Karen Asher



Anita Karen Asher, 56, of Salisbury, passed away Wednesday, February 7, 2018 at her Residence. She was born August 27, 1961 in Hyden, Kentucky to the late James Edward Asher and Phyllis Stewart Waller.

She graduated from East Rowan High School and Rowan Cabarrus Community College with an Associate Degree. She was employed by Interiors by Cain, a family owned business for 34 years, doing what she loved most.
Anita Karen Asher was a loving Mother, caring sister, daughter and friend. She had the biggest heart and loving soul until the end. Now she’s walking with God on the streets of Gold, even though she’s gone, her memory will never grow old.
She is survived by a family that will cherish her memories for the rest of our days, her son, James Edward Asher Russell (Fiance Christin), Daughter, Tesla Reann Russell, three Grandchildren, Karma, Jaelynn and Spencer, sisters, Lisa Campbell, Jennifer Ghent (Curtis), Andrea Helms (Gene). We will remember her smile and all of her loving ways. We all loved her more than anything, just as she loved us the same. I would always tell her she can’t be so nice to everyone and she would always reply with, “I just don’t have it in me to be mean.” She had the biggest heart and would do anything for anyone. She loved her family more than anything else and she’s with the angels dancing in Heaven. We love you Forever and Always.
Visitation will be Monday, February 12, 2018 from 1 PM to 2 PM at Rowan Memorial Park Chapel in the Pines with service to follow with the Rev. Gene Helms officiating.
