Juanita Mae Nussbaum, 81

Juanita Mae Nussbaum, 81, Batesville, passed away Monday, Jan. 27, 2014, at The Waters of Batesville. 

Born June 15, 1932, in Hannibal, Mo., she was the daughter of Lester and Ruth (Truxell) Walker. She married Kenneth L. Nussbaum July 10, 1954, in Cheyenne, Wyo. 

She graduated from Cheyenne High School, was a member of Batesville United Methodist Church and formerly Gaylord United Methodist Church in Michigan. She retired as a school secretary.

Juanita had many interests throughout her life. She was an avid reader who understood staying up all night to finish a good book. Her children remember her love of playing cards. Later in life, computerized card games became her entertainment. She loved making things: food, pies, toys, Christmas stockings and dresses for her daughter and granddaughters.

Juanita never met a stranger. She talked to everyone she ran into, sharing stories and listening with great interest to theirs. She loved taking walks with her daughter and their dogs through Liberty Park before coffee in the morning.

Juanita and Kenny owned an RV for many years. In the summer, they would head West and visit their family in Wyoming and South Dakota. In the winter months, they would head South to visit family and friends in Texas. They never passed the opportunity to visit with friends along the way. All of her grandchildren remember camping with them as children.

Juanita loved to have friends visit. She is remembered fondly by her children's friends, who have said her smile was what they remember best. 

Juanita was known for her generosity, sharing freely her time and talents. She was a leader in both Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts, a band mom, Sunday school teacher and 4-H leader, among many others. She volunteered with her church in many capacities. She worked at food pantries and walked in the very first Relay for Life in Gaylord, Mich.
