Juanita had a great capacity for loving and being loved. Her cheerfulness and contentment were contagious, and people were drawn to her. She was hard working her whole life, and was quick to help anyone, in any way, that she could. She was a woman of great faith, and her church friends were her second family. She was a fantastic mother, grandmother, great grandmother and aunt. She will be truly missed by all who knew her.
