Upon graduating from Ilasco High School, Juanita married Wilbur and started raising their family on a farm outside of Frankford. Juanita worked as a homemaker raising her children until the late 1960’s when she started working as a teller for Mercantile Bank in Louisiana. She always greeted customers and staff with a smile. She worked at the bank for over 25 years before her retirement in the late 1990’s.
Juanita was a loving and caring wonderful mother, homemaker and worker. She loved to cook, kept an immaculate house, was highly skilled with a sewing machine and enjoyed feeding her cardinals and hummingbirds. A country girl at heart, gardening and canning was also a passion. If it was a sunny day, she would be outside tending to her flowerbeds while listening to her numerous wind chimes or refilling her hummingbird feeders. As an outstanding cook, she always had a big meal prepared on the weekends for her family. It blessed her heart that she could pass on her love of cooking to her daughter and grandchildren. She was known for baking the most delicious cinnamon rolls, variety of homemade desserts and best homemade ham noodles. Her memories will be cherished. She will be dearly missed and forever in her family’s hearts.
Away from work and home, Juanita enjoyed traveling out west with Wilbur to many of the national parks especially Yellowstone National Park, and through the mountains of Colorado and Wyoming. She had a love for country music and had traveled to Nashville several times and attended the Grand Ole Opry. One thing was for certain, Juanita loved to travel but being at home always brought her great peace.
Mrs. Glascock was a member of Hall Creek Club in Frankford and Salt River Christian Church in rural New London.
Pallbearers will be Dale Glascock, Kevin Glascock, Frank Schwendemann, Clinton Hughes, Joe Dameron, Seth Smith and Brian Fisher.
