Juanita Mae Doering has taken up residency among the Angels in Heaven after passing on April 14, 2019. She was born April 16th 1938, raised by her parents Charles and Florence Francois, in the small town of Bear Creek Wisconsin where she lived and attended school. Juanita’s constant faith in Jesus kept her strong throughout her life, especially as her health declined in recent months.
Juanita is survived by her husband, Norm; two sons, Randy & Tom and his wife Susan; two daughters Laurie & Lisa and her husband Chad, two brothers Wayne & Carl. Also, grandchildren Shelby (Cody) David, Taylor, Matthew and Alyssa & great grandchild Riley. Also, a family tree with branches that include numerous cousins, nieces, nephews, and sisters and brothers-in-law. She was a wonderful wife, mom, grandma, and aunt. She was loved by her immediate family and all who knew her. She was preceded in death by her parents, Charles and Florence and her sisters Jeanette, Shirley and brothers Glenn & Elmer.
Juanita loved to work on her home landscaping with Norm - ever increasing the variety of flowers, shrubs and trees. They would regularly create starts to share with friends and neighbors. More than one reclaimed shed was converted to clever potting and tool sheds.
Juanita enjoyed collecting decorative lanterns and assortments of angel figurines. Over the years she had become a savvy yard sale extraordinaire.
Juanita was a skilled cake decorator. In the 60s and 70s she enjoyed entering cake decorating contests winning awards and accolades. She continued to bake and decorate cakes through the years for family weddings and birthdays.
The entire family thanks everyone who expressed their love by calling, posting, texting and stopping by with the heartfelt hugs. The outpouring of love and support is appreciated beyond words and it reflects how much Juanita meant to them. She is the glue that held and still holds our family together.
