After retiring, she looked forward to the Tuesdays spent with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She would cook a big meal along with desserts and would make many fun and loving memories.

Junette always enjoyed cooking and baking for the holidays, sitting on her porch soaking up the sun and making fun-loving memories with those around her.
