Juanita “Janie” Erevia of Irrigon, Oregon, was born on June 21, 1941 in Brownsville, Texas. She died on May 8, 2021 in Richland, Washington at the age of 79 years.
A woman with a kind heart is how she was known by many. Juanita was a beautiful soul inside and out. Always a humble woman who put others first, even if it meant she would go without.
Juanita loved spending time with her family, especially with her children and grandchildren whom all adored her. Another favorite time spent with family was her yearly travels to Arizona during Easter to visit her mom (deceased), siblings and relatives. Juanita’s inability to drive did not keep her from going places she wanted to go or from doing things she wanted to do.
She was a proud woman who always gave thanks and was grateful for for what she had. She was not only a woman of God, but an amazing cook, hard working, thoughtful, gave the best hugs and definitely had a green thumb. If you ever visited her home, you knew how passionate she was about her yard and her roses. If Juanita could not be reach by phone, you knew she was outside doing what she loved most while listening to her radio working on her yard with some favorites from Juan Gabriel, Vicente Fernandez and Ramon Ayala.
She spent countless hours outside even those after an 8 hour shift. She was a diligent woman who lived a life filled with love and purpose.
She will be missed but is now in a better place joined by those whom are waiting her arrival in heaven.
