Juanita Pinkley Huser passed away on Wednesday, Oct. 12, 2016. She had dictated her own obituary. In her own words "I was born Feb. 28, 1920 in Carroll County, Tennessee to Clara Wall Pinkley and William Allen Pinkley. I had two sisters and two brothers: Noreen Pinkley Taylor, Mary Pinkley Johns, Albert Pinkley and William Pinkley. I graduated from Clarksburg High School and was on the basketball team. I attended the University of Tennessee and the University of Cincinnati, and I worked for Proctor & Gamble during WWII at the Milan Arsenal. I was recruited to work in Oak Ridge Tennessee in 1944 and worked there until 1947. I went to Memphis and worked at the American Red Cross, where I became the first woman in Tennessee to direct the Memphis/Shelby County fund drive campaign. Still in Memphis, I was transferred to be the Director of Recruitment for blood during the Korean War. Also during that time, I helped integrate the blood supply in Memphis/Shelby County."

"I married Thomas E. Huser, Jr., October 31, 1952. We lived in Cincinnati, where I worked for the American Red Cross as Director of Volunteer Activities. We moved to Toledo, Ohio, where we had daughter, Mary Louise. We moved to New York City, where we had twin children - Thomas Everett and Joyce Ellen. In 1960, we moved to Florida. I worked for Allstate Insurance Company for 27 years and was a member of the Northside church of Christ and the Palm Beach Lakes church of Christ."

Juanita was predeceased by her husband, Thomas E. Huser, Jr., and her son, Thomas E, Huser, III. Juanita is survived by daughters Mary Huser D'Angelo (Joe D'Angelo) and Joyce Edmondson (Charles Edmondson), daughter-in-law Dawn Huser and "adopted daughter" Cathy West. Juanita had 6 grandchildren: Kim Hogan, David Hubbard, William Huser, Mary K. Huser, Edmond Soun, and John D'Angelo. She had 8 great-grandchildren and a host of nieces and nephews.
