I attended Hillsdale Baptist Church with Mrs. Juanita for many years, she also was one of my closest neighbors. I have never met a nicer lady. So sorry for the families loss. Hillsdale lost another great lady.

Fay, Janie, Kathy and Lloyd, and all other family members, I am sooo sorry to hear about Ms. Nita's passing. I, along with my sisters, spent many days at her house growing up in Russelltown. She was like a second mother to us. I loved her for more than words alone can say. She is angel among angels today.
