It is with great sadness that we inform of you of Dr. Lanita Witt’s death this morning with her loving wife, Suzanne, by her side. The outpouring of love from all of you yesterday will carry her safely on this last journey. She was a force of love, caring, and good in this world and will be sorely missed.

  • The ranch will be closed to public visitors unless prior arrangements have been made until January 1st.
  • The The Forest Conservation Burial Ground of Southern Oregon remains open dawn to dusk for visitors.
  • A public memorial will be held on the summer solstice. Dates and more info to come.

Thank you for your love and support,
The team at Willow-Witt Ranch
