Juanita Dungan Dunaway, a sweet faithful Christian lady, a devoted daughter and a very loving and generous sister, aunt and friend. Juanita was born on February 18, 1930 in Baton Rouge to Sam T. and Edna Stegall Dungan and passed into the arms of the Lord on April 12, 2019. She will truly be missed by her family, her church family at Zoar Baptist Church and her many, many friends. Juanita loved the Lord and is with him now and her family before her with a perfect body. She loved watching LSU Tigers, The Rangers and The Astros on TV. She also loved traveling with her sisters, collecting buttons and picking up rocks for her rock gardens.
Juanita is survived by her sisters, Norma Stewert (Wayne), Diane Heard (John), and Carolyn Cooper; brothers, Pat Dungan, Alvin "Sam" Dungan (Kim), and LA "Butch" Granata? Jr. (Sandy); and a host of nieces and nephews.
Juanita is preceded in death by her parents; husband, Jessie L. Dunaway; sisters, Edna Earl Melton and Joan Beverson; and brother, Thomas W. Dungan.
Relatives and friends are invited to join the family for the visitation at Baker Funeral Home, 6401 Groom Road, Baker, Louisiana on Monday, April 15, 2019 from 5:00 PM to 9:00 PM. Visitation will continue Tuesday, April 16, 2019 from 9:00 AM until the funeral service at 11:00 AM, officiated by Reverend Glenn Meirs. The graveside service and burial will follow at Hillcrest Memorial Gardens in Baker, Louisiana.
My deepest condolences to Juanita's family. May she rest in peace. I know she will be greatly missed by her loving sisters who have been by her side always.

Even though we never met Juanita,we feel as if we knew her because Carolyn would tell us about her. Jack and I are so sorry for your loss and we know this places a hole in your hearts that will never be replaced. You will just have the "peace" knowing she IS in a better place. Love, Judy & Jack
