She lived her life giving to family and friends, usually in the form of one of her special dishes. Juel loved to work. Yard work was her favorite and she kept hers in park-like condition. She loved spending time with family and friends and wintering in Florida for 19 years. A memorial service will be held at a later date. Memorials may be made to the Alzheimer’s Association.
