Juanita Marie Scott, long time resident of Sullivan, Missouri passed away Monday, December 12 at the age of 94. Juanita was born to John and Ona Mae Pursley of Robertsville, MO. She was raised in a farmhouse along Little Calvey Creek and lived and worked for a doctor’s family to attend Pacific High School. After meeting Morris Scott, who returned from WWII in 1946, Juanita married and moved to Sullivan to raise a family. Their marriage celebrated 68 years of commitment and they were blessed with four girls. Juanita worked as a payroll clerk at Paramount Cap Manufacturing for 38 years while raising a family. After retiring from Paramount, she loved politics and was an election poll worker for 10 years. Volunteer work was always a priority for Juanita. As Morris served for 55 years with the Sullivan Volunteer Fire Department, Juanita gave her time to the Ladies Auxiliary which raised thousands of dollars to help keep the then all volunteer fire department rolling Juanita was a lifelong member of First Baptist Church where for many years she served as a Sunday school teacher to boys aged 10 to 12. Juanita was a member of the Bourbon Quilters’ Guild. She won several ribbons including “Best in Show” for her many beautiful quilts. She was an avid gardener and was a member of the Sullivan Garden Club, winning “Lawn of the Year” one summer. Juanita also volunteered and was a member of the board with the Harney Mansion Foundation for several years believing lessons learned during the country’s civil war era need to be preserved.
