She was the loving mother of Kurt, Scott, Mark and Chris Metz, Sherry Christiansen and Leslie Armstrong Jensen; loving grandmother of Dana, Stacia, Shawna, Nicholas, Krystle, Chelsea, Jeff, Lizzie, Christa, Austin and Quentin; and great-grandmother of 9.

She was preceded in death by her 3 husbands; son, Mark Metz; brother Charles Tansor and sister Betty Garikes.

She was the head nurse at an Obstetrics office and later ran a plastic injection molding company before retiring in 1988. Juanita loved flower gardening more than anything and especially loved her roses.

She will be sorely missed by all those whose life she touched.
