Juanita worked in the Industrial Engineering Department of Spring Mills for over 30 years assisting the Plant Manager. Skilled in math, she trained numerous college students on the art of budgeting. Juanita was an avid golfer and won the Country Club championship several times. She was an advocate of exercise, good healthy food, and staying out of the sun. She loved to sing hymns and didn’t mind turning up the volume to a Patsy Cline song. She deeply loved her family, church, community, and the women that she bonded with forming the POW’s (Poor Old Widow Women). She was sometimes called “911” because she was always ready to help a friend in crises. Even with the death of her husband and two sons of cancer, she still lived life to the fullest with her infectious sense of humor. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions in honor of Johnny, Jay, and Richard Criscione can be sent to Cancer of Many Colors, 100 Old Cherokee Road, Suite F-339, Lexington, South Carolina, 29072.
