My condolences to all the family of Juanita. A wonderful mother and grandmother. I had a few years of knowing her and remembered when she got her drivers license, and how much more freedom. She acquired.!!! Keep her good memories deep in your hearts it’s very hard to lose a mother, and such a good one as her. Fondly. Linda Cox
