Juanita enjoyed her family and especially enjoyed getting together for holidays. She made the best German potato salad and the best boiled custard for dessert. She was a great cook and she also like fishing.
Juanita worked for years at Honey Baked Ham which led to her collecting pigs. She really enjoyed collecting pigs. Fortunately they were figurines, in which she had well over 100.
Juanita was very special to each and everyone one of us and we loved her dearly. We are very saddened that she has passed and we will all miss her very much. May she rest in peace with her beloved husband Larry and enjoy life in heaven with her Lord and Savior for the rest of eternity.
