Juanita Fern Havens was born to Marvin and Daisy Harrington September 4, 1950 in Phoenix, Arizona.
Juanita passed from his life January 15, 2017 at her home surrounded by her family and friends just as she instructed.
Juanita married the love of her life January 25, 1967.
She leaves to morn her death, her husband Allen, son Claude and wife Nataline, grandsons, and the apple of her eyes, Nate and Doc, 2 sisters Pauline Matheson and husband Ed, Charlene Davidson and husband Ron, brother-in-law Austin Havens and numerous neices and nephews and last but not least her friends J and Claudia Mann who she loved like family.
She is preceded in death by her parents, a sister Marlene Havens, a niece Darlene Havens Brown, and 3 nephews Marvin Matheson, Jordon Matheson and Jacob Moore.
Juanita has always said she was a jack of all trades and a master of none. With an 8th grade education she was able to manage RWD #3 for the past 30 years, retire from Grady County Fire Department, become a notary, work the Grady County Election Board and manage the Bradley Cafe for 13 years.
I do believe she mastered life. The things that truly mattered. She loved fully and contagiously. You never had to wonder how Nita felt about you. She told you she loved you and meant every word.
She has left a void for all who knew her and will be greatly missed.
Graveside services for Juanita Havens will be held on Friday, January 20 at 2:00pm at the Bradley Cemetary.
All who loved her please come and celebrate her life.
