Juanita was a native of Balkin, Kentucky and was the daughter of the late James A. and Abbie E. (McGeorge) Miracle. She was a member of Cross Point Baptist Church. This last year was a wonderful year for Juanita. She was baptized last November and was able to spend a lot of quality time with her family. The beautiful memories they made together this past year will bring great comfort to the family. She was a loving housewife and mother and thoroughly enjoyed caring for her family and spending time with them. She enjoyed traveling and loved to jump in the car and go anywhere with her family. Her caring ways and her sweet presence will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her.
