Juanita M. Frantz, age 87 of Warsaw, passed away quietly in her home on Saturday, December 19, 2020 at 12:25 a.m. Her loving family had cared for her as her health declined.
Juanita was born on November 20, 1933 in Dixieland, California. She was the daughter of Albert Berry Davis and Laura Rebecca (May) Davis who passed at an early age. Later, her father re-married; her stepmother, Martha Davis raised Juanita and her siblings.
On January 27, 1950, Juanita was married to Alton Lavon Frantz. The pair shared nearly 70 years before her Saturday morning passing. Their union included many blessings including four children who were Juanita’s top focus. She was a caring, loving mother with a generous nature though she also worked for many years at Sears Roebuck. She enjoyed crafts like macrame, quilting, and crotchet and baked the most wonderful yeast rolls, English Toffee and Chicken Noodles. She loved classic hymns and old-time Gospel music and was saved through Jesus Christ. She was a member of Community Bible Church and enjoyed the fellowship there.
