Dr. Anita Pride

Posted By Administration, Monday, December 12, 2016

CHAMPAIGN – On Oct. 12, 2016, Dr. Anita Bergeron Pride passed away peacefully in her home surrounded by her loving family and her loyal companion, Simba.


Born in Cornwall, Ontario, Canada to Marie Lauzon and Albert Bergeron, Dr. Anita attended Academie St. Michel and St. Lawrence High School. She pursued post-secondary education and graduated from Queens University with a Baccalaureate in Education in 1976.


Upon graduating from Palmer College of Chiropractic as valedictorian in 1988, she and her former husband Dr. Paul Pride opened Pride Clinic of Chiropractic.


Because Dr. Anita was dedicated to helping patients achieve their wellness goals, she expanded her education and obtained her Doctorate of Homeopathic Medicine in 1995, and Diplomate in Nutrition in 2001. Therefore, a new practice evolved, Pride In Your Health Holistic Clinic, which utilized specific laboratory testing and clinical diagnosis to help patients achieve optimal health, using protocols which were specifically tailored to each individual's needs.


Her professional Associations included: Illinois Chiropractic Society, American Clinical Board of Nutrition, Council on Nutrition, Illinois Homeopathic Medical Association, National Board of Homeopathic Examiners and National Center for Homeopathy.


Dr. Anita is survived by her three children, Casey Pride, Jason Pride, Hanna Pride MacKichan and husband Cameron MacKichan.


She is also survived by her family in Canada: mother, Marie (Lauzon) Bergeron; brother, Ron Bergeron and wife Marilyn; and sisters, Elaine Edwards, Theresa Bergeron, Anne Marie Seller, Lillian Lemire and husband Jacques.


Dr. Anita was predeceased by former husband Dr. Paul Pride, father Albert Bergeron and sister Francoise Anne.


Her service will be held at Windsor Road Christian Church (2501 Windsor Road, Champaign) at 10 a.m. Friday, Oct. 21. Her family will be available to receive condolences following the service.


Dr. Anita's special request for her life celebration is that it be light, filled with humor and color. We encourage all friends and family to follow a "colorful" dress code.


In lieu of other expressions of sympathy, please consider making a donation to Blood Water Mission in Dr. Anita's name. Blood Water Mission builds wells in impoverished areas throughout the world to provide clean water to communities. Our goal is to raise $3,000 to build a well in her honor. Donations can be made online at


Morgan Memorial Home, 1304 Regency Drive West, Savoy, is in charge of arrangements.
