I'm truly sorry for your loss. I worked with Juanita  at Morehead  Hospital  for a few years. She always  cared about the patients and was good to work with.  I will keep you in my thoughts  and prayers.  May God grant you comfort and peace.

My deepest sympathies go out to all of the Howlett family. I can recall some of my fondest memories visiting my Aunts, cousins, and other family members at the  family farm in Eden. 
To watch my devoted mother care for her sisters so selflessly, for so many years,  is a true testament to the love these sisters all had for each other.Knowing that Aunt Juanita is now home with our Lord and Savior, gives me great comfort.
Rene West

Miss Juanita and Miss Jackie looked after me when I was a kid and patient at Morehead over 40 years ago. They were a dedicated pair of nurses of the old school that made Morehead an excellent hospital. Even as a kid I was impressed by their starched white uniforms complete with caps and I never forgot them. May the Good Lord bless and comfort Miss Juanita's family.

I remember growing up with Juanita and seeing her at church every Sunday.  We worked together for many years at Morehead.  Juanita truly loved nursing and taking care of patients and family.  Juanita was a christian lady who lived her faith each day.  Her family and friends can find comfort in the knowledge that she truly loved those around her.
