She was raised in Bronx, New York, where she lived and worked for many years before moving to Connecticut in 1988. While living in NY, Juana spent many years working as a nurse throughout the area, retiring from Metropolitan Hospital in the Bronx. Juana was best known for her outgoing and funny personality and for her love of cooking and feeding her family and friends. Her laughter was contagious, and she was always trying to brighten someone's day by finding the lighter side of things and being funny. Juana loved to tend to her many houseplants and was known for having a “Green Thumb”. She also enjoyed going to tag sales and thrift shopping but was always happiest while spending time with her family. She was exceptional in almost every way but she excelled the most at being a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, sister, and friend
