"God didn't promises days without pain, laughter without sorrow, sun without rain. But He did promise strength for the day, comfort for the tears, light for the way. We don't need to say good bye, rather, see you later." See you later, Juanita.

Anne and Dean and other family members, we are sorry to learn of Juanita's passing. I so enjoyed the time we had living next to her on Crescent drive. Talking at the fence was priceless. She would give me advice on gardening that I needed. Her flowers always looked so beautiful but she always thought they needed attention. She is someone I remember fondly when I'm now in the flower beds. She was an inspiration on how to live.

I have enjoyed knowing the sweetest lady that was a Saint!! I was so very blessed to know a woman that I could consider my adopted Grandmother. When I relocated to Sidney with my Aunt Anne and Uncle Dean, got to know Juanita and fell in love with her. She and I made friends and she was always there when I needed an ear. I will miss her and am glad to know such an awesome person. I Love Ya Grandma!!
