My sympathies to Juanita's family. She was a dear friend of my grandmother Cora Ogden. Juanita joined many of our family gatherings before my grandmother passed. We always enjoyed her joyful spirit. Her and I exchanged cards and letters and I was always impressed by her memory of my family. God bless you all!
