Obituary of Anita Isham Ransdell
Anita Ransdell, 82, Harrodsburg, widow of Curtis, died Wednesday, August 22, 2018, at the Ephraim McDowell James B Haggin Hospital, Harrodsburg.
Born November 11, 1935, in Mercer Co., she was the daughter of the late Richard Arthur and Hannah (Carter) Isham. She was a retired Maintenance Department Secretary for Kentucky State University and was a member of the Mt. Pleasant Church.
Anita's favorite passion in this world, besides her love for her Lord and Savior, was her children and grandchildren. She loved her family with every breathe she took.

She will forever be missed by those who remain, but we know she is rejoicing on the streets of gold with her family and friends that went before her.
