Juanita was an amazing woman. I worked with her at American National. She always had a smile on her face and a kind word for everyone. I will miss her.

Extending our warmest thoughts and prayers to Larry, the Stump families, Lisa and her family, and Kim, Rick, Amber, Nicole, and Kristin. It's been a difficult time in recent months ... for many of us. So, Denise and I just wanted you to know that we were thinking of all of you as you cope with the grief surrounding Juanita's passing.

I worked with Juanita for several years and will miss her very much she was a hard dedicated worker and rarely missed a day of work, she could always be depended on to be at work unless there was a family illness. She will be greatly missed. This is a sad day she didn't have more time to spend with her family which was very important to her. I will carry many memories of Juanita in the years we worked together.
