Boating and camping on the Yellow and Blackwater Rivers, as well as the Gulf of Mexico were some of her favorite activities and she enjoyed them with her sons, grandchildren, sisters and brothers and their families, and nieces, nephews and friends. She taught all her children and grandchildren how to bait a hook and fish. Even after she was no longer able to fish herself she took great joy and excitement in the prize catches of family members. Her hobbies included crocheting many Christmas stockings, bedcovers and kitchen towels that she enjoyed giving to family and friends. She loved Country music and was an avid reader with her favorite author being Agatha Christie. Her favorite preacher was Billy Graham and she read his book on Heaven numerous times. Up to a few weeks before she passed Juanita enjoyed perusing bookstores and shopping for her favorite outfits (pajamas) with friends and family. One of her greatest loves was sending birthday and holiday cards to her family and friends. Even after her death cards were found that were ready for mailing so she wouldn't neglect sending everyone birthday blessings in 2012.
After her move to Ocala she continued to correspond and occasionally visit her special friends from the Fidelis Sunday School Class, First Baptist Church in Milton, where she was a member. She spent her last five years happily in the home of her eldest son and his wife, who loving cared for her.
