Dear Sherrie and Gary: Sending my most sincere condolences on the passing of your mom. Although I had only met her once, her reputation in this area preceded her as a person of compassion and caring, the nurse extraordinaire, and a strong woman who raised three wonderful children. I hope your hearts will soon be filled with wonderful memories, although I have no doubt, they are now heartbroken. Godspeed.

Juanita was one of the stars of the South End Citizens Group. She had a practical, good sense and good humor about her when approaching community problems. While she acted at all times with respect to all points of view, she never ceased to speak the truth in love- sometimes with the most wonderful facial expressions! My family was most honored when Juanita attended the funeral of my father, Dr. Tom Iden, in full dress nurse’s uniform. When I thanked her, she expressed her appreciation of Dad and said that she attended the funerals of older health care professionals so attired as a tribute to the deceased and to the profession. Juanita was a fantastic lady.

To the Carter family ~~ We met Juanita shortly after we moved to Winchester in 2003. She lived several blocks up the street from us on Valley Avenue. She was one of the friendliest, most active people I have ever met! She always had an upbeat attitude and seemed unstoppable. Juanita Carter made the world a richer place by just being in it. We send our deepest sympathies ~~ Quinton and Fran Barker

I met Juanita as a new faculty member, new to the area. What a positive and professional Lady and Nurse. She was a great role model for my students as well as new nurses. She kept her cool and helped those in crisis whether patient, family member or overwhelmed student. She was a great friend and will be missed. God Bless her and bring her home. My deepest sympathy to her family.

Juanita was one of the most delightful people, who I came to know through the Shenandoah Valley Genealogical Society. We could never get her to run for one of our SVGS board positions, but she shared all her knowledge and was just a real gem to our members. I will miss her smiling face!

My respect for Juanita is enormous. She was a perfect role model for every nurse. A connection we had was through Jerome Virginia - and the Dellinger clan. I hope she is able to be at rest and with her beloved nurse friends such as Mary Jane McCone. She may be gone, but this is one nurse who will never be forgotten.

I met Juanita in 1970 when I was a “ward secretary “at WMH.She introduced herself as being from Mathias,WV(where I was from originally),and was always smiling and was always SO friendly! After my husband & I moved back to Mathias in 1990,I went to work in 1999 at the Hardy Co.courthouse.Juanita would come in the office to do genealogy research and we had many interesting conversations over the years! I can honestly say I loved that lady and I’m going to miss her.I’m sure God greeted nurse fantastic w/open arms!

To hear this greatly saddens me. Juanita was a beautiful person and a great nurse!! It never mattered how busy or tired she was... if she met you the hallway at WMC or met you in an aisle at Martins....she always had her beautiful smile on!! She will be missed, but remembered highly ! Love and prayers for her family and friends.
