Ms. Juanita Lillian (Anderson) English, age 87, peacefully departed this world and joined her Lord and Savior in heaven on Wednesday May 4, 2022.

She was united in matrimony to Robert English and was blessed with two bonus children Regina and Ronald.
Juanita worked for and retired from the United States Social Security Administration.
