We are a planet of grieving orphans and think our losses are special. However, those left by Juanita are especially mindful of her smile, her resilience to make it to 93 and her grace to accept the 42 years she lived without her best friend, Joe Paul.

To her ten grandchildren and five great-grandchildren who remember G.G., this is for you as much as it is in memory of G.G.:

She loved you all as much as she loved her Joe and her God. You were and are the living testament to her life as a mother. Love each other as she loved you.

In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the Smith Phayer Hospice House, 130 Forest Glen Drive, Columbus, NC 28722.

A private family service will be held in the coming weeks.

An online guest register is available at www.mcfarlandfuneralchapel.com

McFarland Funeral Chapel, Tryon, is in charge of arrangements.
