Born in Wendell, Juanita was the daughter of the late Donnie and Mary Etta Harward. She was predeceased by sisters Mary Etta Mailender and Swanny Faucette. Her husband of 54 years Reggie passed away in 2003.

Family was very important to her. She is survived by her two sons, Reagan A. Register and his wife Tonya of Clayton, Jeffrey A.

Juanita grew up in Durham where she was a member of the Angier Ave Baptist Church. Over the years she lived in several different places including Annapolis Maryland, Houston Texas (where she worked for the Chief of Police), Dallas Texas and Jackson and Hattiesburg Mississippi. After returning to North Carolina in 1972 the family again joined Angier Ave Baptist Church where she and Reggie sang in the choir and Juanita played piano for the “Cabin Class.” Juanita took care of her family and was employed by the state of North Carolina in Food Stamp Accounting for several years. In later years she attended and was ministered to by Greystone Baptist Church, Raleigh NC.

Juanita and Reggie were avid gardeners and members of the Men’s Garden Club of Wake County and the Hemerocallis (Daylily) Society. Their yard was beautiful and they both have Daylilies named after them.
