I met Mrs. Juanita when I joined the Board of Directors for the Christian Service Center. She devoted many years to us as bookkeeper and excellence was always her creed. She was such a special lady. I saw her at Bradley's recently and was delighted to have a moment with her. Her gentle spirit belied a fierce determination and will when it came to things she loved. She was a powerful influence at the Sheriff's office, bragging often that she helped raise Taylor Douglas and Dean Kelly. Although she never birthed a child, she was "Mama Juanita" to many. Her influence in my life was profound and I am forever grateful to have known her; she loved hard. Love and prayer to her multitude of family and friends.
