Obituary

Juanita Dungan Dunaway, a sweet faithful Christian lady, a devoted daughter and a very loving and generous sister, aunt and friend. Juanita was born on February 18, 1930 in Baton Rouge to Sam T. and Edna Stegall Dungan and passed into the arms of the Lord on April 12, 2019. She will truly be missed by her family, her church family at Zoar Baptist Church and her many, many friends. Juanita loved the Lord and is with him now and her family before her with a perfect body. She loved watching LSU Tigers, The Rangers and The Astros on TV. She also loved traveling with her sisters, collecting buttons and picking up rocks for her rock gardens. Juanita is survived by her sisters, Norma Stewert (Wayne), Diane Heard (John), and Carolyn Cooper; brothers, Pat Dungan, Alvin "Sam" Dungan (Kim), and LA "Butch" Granata Jr. (Sandy); and a host of nieces and nephews.
