She leaves her beloved husband and soul mate of 61 years, Donald, her daughters and son-in-laws, Marie McGraw, Marlene Caprio and her husband, Aldo, Michele Tutalo and her husband, Ken, and Mary Schiffenhaus and her husband, Geoff, six grandchildren, Christopher and Cassandra Tutalo, Nicholas and Michael Caprio, Jessica Modrow and Rebecca Schiffenhaus, and two great-grandchildren, Enzo and Brooke Tutalo.
Juanita lived a full and loving life surrounded by loved ones, for which she was very grateful. She had many trials and tribulations which she overcame with courage and determination. She was a pioneer in new preventative treatments for cancer and a source of information and support for others struggling with precancerous conditions.
Juanita and Donald grew up across the street from each other and were childhood sweethearts who married and remained loving partners for more than 70 years. Their marriage was an inspiration to many people, especially their children and grandchildren.
She was strong, fiercely protective of her family, fun-loving and always there for those who needed her. She was a true friend and constant companion to all her daughters and grandchildren and will be missed tremendously by all of them.
Please know that flowers will not be accepted. If you would like to do something else, please send a donation in lieu of flowers to the OHS Foundation, 333 US highway 46 W, Mt Lakes NJ 07046.
