I just heard today (May 5) that Juanita passed away. I’m so sorry that I didn’t know in time to pay my respects in person. I worked with her for many years on 8-West. The last time I talked to her she told me she had a new trailer and Mary McCoy and I planned to visit her there again. She was such a wonderful caring person. Everyone loved her. Carla Alley

I was a 20 year old fresh out of nursing school and Juanita was one of the first people I worked with. I learned so much from her and had the upmost respect for her! She affected so many lives as an employee at WVU! I loved hearing her voice when I called 4000 for phone numbers ( and I call nearly every day)! She will be missed by many!

I worked for years with Juanita at the hospital she was a blast working with . We always found something to laugh about. I will keep the family in my prayers.
