Juanita Audrey Crain Ramshur
March 4, 1940 - January 13, 2024
Juanita Audrey Crain Ramshur, age 83 and a resident of the Pine Community, passed away peacefully Saturday evening January 13, 2024 at her daughter’s home. She is now rejoicing with the love of her life (her Johnny). Life had not been the same for her since his passing in October 2020. Juanita was a longtime active member of Pine Missionary Baptist Church that played the organ for services for many years. She loved to listen to her favorite gospel music by The Gaithers, Alan Jackson and Elvis Presley and she liked to collect Angels. She graduated from Pine School in 1957 and was the one who gave the Rebels their nickname. Juanita was the owner/operator of Pine Community Grocery for many years. Later in life, when the grandkids came along she closed the store and helped to care for her grandchildren, whom she loved and adored. Her greatest accomplishment in life was being a devoted wife, mother and grandmother to all her family.
