Juanita always brought a special flare to our church! Our family always cherished the birthday cards we received from her each year. Hand delivered! While we are sad because of her passing, we rejoice knowing that Juanita had the salvation that only Grace can bring. Humbled to know her and experience her love.

I will always remember Juanita. She never missed a bible study if she could help it. She came to my home many times and always wanted her coffee out of the "pink" cup. Pink was her favorite color.
