I knew Juanita from water aerobics and enjoyed spending time talking to her as she finished up her exercises before leaving the pool. She was also an active part of our Senior Action group and I always looked forward to her delicious Mac and Cheese. She will be greatly missed.

Juanita was a dear friend. She was our "pool mother" even before I became her instructor 10 years ago. Always with a smile, hair perfect, make up on, and a broach always pinned to her swimsuit! A force of nature with a kind, gentle side, not to mention her sense of humor. I loved her and she loved me. I am so grateful that she was a part of my life. I will miss her. Rest in Jesus arms, my Juanita. We will meet again...

My sympathies to the entire family of Juanita. I knew her from Westside aquatic‘s, she always had a smile on her face, and a little twinkle in her eye. I always commented on her jewelry, she always came to class with her make up on and her hair always done perfect. I’ve had several conversations with her, she was truly an inspiration and one of the sweetest ladies I have ever met, she will be sorely missed.

Gail --- I am so sorry to hear of Juanita's passing. I have so many memories of your mom and dad at the house on State Park Road, especially Juanita bring my dad (Kenneth) and Ellis something to drink while they were working on their cars. Juanita was so faithful to visit my mom (Betty Coleman) at Spring Park in Travelers Rest. Her last visit was a couple of weeks before my mom passed in March 2020. Mom was not up for conversation, but Juanita just sat by the hospital bed and held my mom's hand. That is a moment that I will never forget and always remember. May GOD bless you and your family during this time...… Terry Coleman

To Gail, Laura & families,I am so sorry for your loss. I will & do miss her, too. She was a great example of a Godly woman. We had many talks, & she was frequently ringing my door bell to deliver a goodie that she had made & transported in her rollator. I loved her dearly & will continue to pray that God will comfort you.

Oh Gail...such a precious picture and video! Her smile told the world she was loved and gave so much love in return. She was a jewel to all us family members and we will surely miss her and her "family parties". She touched so many with her sweet, loving, caring ways. May God wrap each of you in his loving arms as you learn to travel the road of life without her. We will all miss her but cherish her memory. Dianne

Dear Gail and family, May God strengthen each of you in the days ahead. Juanita was such a joy and she was such a blessing to us in keeping our children while we worked. I will not be able to make the services due to Gene's health, but you are certainly in our prayers. Much love, Sandra Barnette
