PERRY, Anita Lynn Saulter Billings

PERRY - Anita Lynn Saulter Billings Born on December 6, 1958, in Wellsville, NY to Mary Lou (Morehouse) and Donald Saulter. After meeting the love of her life Bruce Billings, marrying (1977), purchasing a house, and getting a dog, the couple raised three children: Jacquie Billings (Travis Barlow, Perry), Faye Billings, (New Orleans, LA), and Sarah Billings-Doerflinger (Andy Doerflinger, Geneseo). Her first and last jobs were at the Hole in the Wall. She and Bruce leveraged all of their family's resources to purchase the HW in 2001, and preserve its spirit and legacy by offering affordable, family-friendly dining while pushing the limits of the region's culinary boundaries. Anita Billings lost her battle with ALS on May 21, 2016, at home surrounded by her loving family and best friend Kellie Kennedy (Larry, Geneseo). She passed away with the faithful knowledge she would be welcomed into heaven by her parents, her brother Mark, and father-in-law Leland "Burdette" Billings. Members of the community are welcome to visit the family on Friday, May 27, 2016, from 4-8pm at Eaton Watson Funeral Home.
