As one of Jehovah’s Witnesses, Juanita faithfully ministered to her neighbors, family and friends alike because she wanted them to share her hope. While she believed the bible teaching that a limited number of persons will live in heaven, she looked forward to being resurrected to live again on this earth restored to paradise. (Psalms 37:9, 11, 22, 29) She would have loved for you to examine this bible teaching for yourself by visiting www.jw.org or asking one of Jehovah’s Witnesses.

Memorial services will be held at 1 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 21, 2019, at 1351 White Marsh Road, Suffolk, VA 23434.
