She was always sensitive to other people’s feelings, and that was especially true in marriage.

      Perhaps the reason Juanita related so well to children was the fact that she never really completely grew up herself.

      Vested with a deep concern for spiritual development, Juanita recognized that her faith was important to her throughout her life. She was a member of Green Grove Chapel. During that time, she was a song leader and a leader where ever she was needed. She was a prayer warrior.
