Mom passed away after a long fight with ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease), peacefully at home on March 11th early in the morning. She was born in Yakima, WA and later moved to Snelling, CA.

After high school she met and married her husband of 55 years, Ronald Preston Brummell. They worked hard in the Hay Hauling business for most of those years and built a ranch home on 7 acres where mom enjoyed her cactus gardening, raising baby goats, and working on her southwestern crafts that she took to small craft fairs around the valley.

They had three children, Julie (Bobby) Leigh, Jerry (Teresa) Brummell, and Janet (Steve) Brummell; four grandchildren, Brian (Kristen) Leigh, Jerry Jr. (Fan) Brummell, Crystal Brummell, and Sarah Minasian; and four great grandchildren, Alexis, Annisa, and Link Brummell, and Addison Leigh.

She also leaves behind her parents, Leo and Ena Andrews; two sisters, Shirley (Bob) Treanor, Ronda (Ken) Bohner; a brother, John Andrews; and also the extended family of Luke (Patrice) Larson and John Minasian.

Juanita worked for many years as a bookkeeper for Merced Milling, APC Auto Parts, and Napa Auto Parts.

She enjoyed her memberships in the Elks and Emblem Club, where she was past President and Financial Officer (Twice) for over 26 years. She was also a member of the Eagles where she and Ronnie enjoyed the dinners and especially working the Eagles booth at the Merced Fair.

Juanita loved to travel and in their RV they went many places, Arizona (Quartzite), Sedona, New Mexico, Texas, Oklahoma, anything to do with the old west, she was a Go-Getter!

She will be missed by all. The family wishes to thank the Merced Hines Hospice; the nurses who helped us, Christy, Stephanie, Alana, Jennifer, and Julie; Marsha for her company and kindness; and Dr. Jeff Rosenfeld and Dr. Adrian Fedele for all your help. We couldn't have done it without you.

In lieu of flowers, please make donations to the Merced Hinds Hospice, 410 W. Main St., Merced, CA 95340.
