Juna D. Wainscott, 70


Juna D. Wainscott, 70, Batesville, died Friday, May 16, 2014, at Margaret Mary Health. 

Born Aug. 15, 1943, in Covington, Ky., she was the daughter of Evelyn (Gaddis) and Charles McElfresh. A homemaker for many years, she also worked as airport security at the Greater Cincinnati-Northern Kentucky Airport for over 10 years.

Juna began bowling at an early age. Doing something she loved with friends turned into a 40-plus year hobby as a league bowler before giving it up several years back. Other interests included playing scrabble, working crossword puzzles, following the Cincinnati Reds and playing tennis when she was younger. Her children teased about her lack of gourmet cooking skills and the fact that she liked soap operas. They were most proud of their mom's fighting spirit. Juna endured numerous health issues over her lifetime, including a brain aneurism, ruptured appendix and an aortic aneurism. No matter what she faced, Juna was always a forward thinker, remained positive and was willing to do what was needed to return back to good health. Even the recent discovery of leukemia found her ready to tackle it head on.

She is survived by her daughters Julie (Mike) Tekulve, Oldenburg, Debbie (Dana) Gregg, Sunman, and Susanne (Ben Day) Warner, Park Hills, Kentucky; son Jerome (Paula) Warner, Morris; sisters Erlene Barndt, Linda Anderson, Marita Spencer, Sherri McElfresh and Kim Mullins; brothers Tony, Roger, David and Danny McElfresh; 18 grandchildren; and three great-grandchildren. 

She was preceded in death by her parents, brother Mack and one grandson.

Visitation is Monday, May 19, from 4-7 p.m. at Weigel Funeral Home with a rosary service at 4 p.m. Funeral services are 11 a.m. Tuesday, May 20, at St. Nicholas Catholic Church, Sunman, with the Rev. Shaun Whittington officiating. Burial will follow in the church cemetery. 

The family requests memorials to St. Nicholas School.
