    Juanita was like a Sister to us for nearly 60 years. The promises of GOD were life to her. Her favorite vs.Psalms 46:1 “GOD is our Refuge & Strength, a very present Help in time of trouble”. She depended on His Holy Spirit’s presence 24/7. And she knew who she was & is, a Child of The King! She has been ‘set free’ from all pain & suffering, Psalm 46:7 & now with her Lord in Heaven & no doubt in awe of the Splendor & Majesty of it all! Our love & prayers for you, Debbie & Family. Bill & Dianne Smith

    Nita was genuine, kind and compassionate. She friended me in the 1980’s when I was going through a very difficult time in my life. She was a real prayer warrior and dear friend.
