Juana moved from Peru in her teens to become a citizen of the United States
A smart, hard working woman who was never afraid to face a challenge, she earned her Associate Degree at Middlesex County college. But, she was significantly way more than that.
Despite all the difficulties that life could bring everyday, she found the strength to cope an keep going.
She was an outdoors person who enjoyed nature and friends.
Juanita was a master cook. She could make an entire meal faster than you could say “I’m hungry “. A delicious meal with very few ingredients that everybody enjoyed.
Since her early years she showed an entrepreneurial spirit, making it possible to earn additional income for the family when she was just a teenager in Peru.
Regardless of the difficulties that she encountered in life she faced them with courage and without resentment toward anyone. Juana loved people and loved being loved.
Juana and her husband Bill had a special love for each other. There was no one she loved more than her Bill and no one he loved more than his Juanita.
Juana's life and her spirit left too soon. She will be missed by Bill and everyone she touched.
The family will receive friends Friday, September 8, 2023 from 10:00 am until service time at 11:00 am at McDonald and Son Funeral Home, followed by a graveside service at Sawnee View Memorial Gardens.
