She graduated from St. Josephs Academy with the class of 1951.  Juanita married John Fredrick Schertenleib on August 1st 1953, together they created seven beautiful children who became her sole purpose on this earth.  Juanita retired from St Anthony's hospital where she worked many years in the Central Supply Department, upon her retirement she volunteered numerous hours to the Senior Companion's program where she spent time reading to Seniors and helping them with crafts and games, she loved making their day a little brighter.

Juanita loved traveling and took many trips with her Senior friends, she also was involved with the Pioneers Lady's club and the Red Hat Ladies Association.  Juanita will always be remembered for her soft heart and selfless acts of kindness, she always saw the good in people and would give what little she had to anyone in need.  Juanita's Faith and Love for the Lord  were unshakeable, even during her final hours on this earth she felt Gods arms around her, she was happy to finally go home... above the waterfall to her beautiful new home in Heaven, which the Lord had shown her many times.

Mom, you were the best, we Love and miss you very much, you taught us to appreciate the simple things in life and to cherish the things that where important. Your love for the Lord was always present and if we could honor you in any way...it would be to structure our lives after yours, We send you to Heaven with our blessings and can’t wait to see you again in Heaven..until then.....Our Love now and always.

I was a classmate of Jack and got acquainted with Juanita because w e were all SJA alums. I graduated in 1949. Jack and I were very good friends and he was then living in Meacham, played basketball for the Blue Jays and hung around together. I remember Juanita as a cordial and personable girl who was easy to be with and chat. After I left SJA I rarely went back to the Academy, so we went our ways. Condolences to family and loved ones.

Grandma, I miss you and will love you always. You were always there for me when I was a kid, I loved sitting on your lap and hear your stories while laughing. At least you are with your daughter (my mom), laughing and just being the special people that you are. I love and will miss you forever and always. I'll see you guys when I get there! To all our family.. I'm sorry.
