Born June 19, 1941, she was the daughter of the late Ellen Christine Chalmers and the late Elijah Crawford. She was educated in the Abbeville County School System and worked as a teacher’s assistant for School District 60 for over 30 years.
Juanita had the greatest love for all the children; it didn’t matter who.
