At the time of her death, Juanita was living in Kansas, where she moved to in 2004, two years after Orville passed away. Juanita and Orville lived in Oregon where Orville worked logging and various places in Montana on farms/ranches. She Followed Orville wherever work was as that is how she felt wives should do. Many times she would say “money and material things meant nothing. As long as we have each other, family, a roof over our head, food, and clothes we were able to live.”
Nita enjoyed life, her family, and friends. For hobbies she read, crafted, knitted, and crocheted. In her last years she hand quilted and gave many quilts to family and friends.
