Juanita was born and raised in Phoenix. She grew up by 9th St. and Jefferson, and started a family at only 17 years of age. She retired from Penn Raquet, where she worked for over 32 years.
Juanita's family was everything to her, she loved spending time with her grandchildren,. She was a great cook, tamales tortillas... you name it! She was honest.... blunt... she told it how it is!
Our mother was a devout Catholic, and we wish to honor her memory at a Memorial Service, which will be held at a later date.
