Our beloved, Mother Juanita Friday Gee departed this earthly life on Easter Sunday, April 1, 2018 at McLeod Medical Center in Dillon, South Carolina. She was born on October 11, 1925 to the late Gus and Bertha Friday in Chesterfield, South Carolina.
She attended the public schools of Dillon County, South Carolina. In her earlier years, she was employed by Rounds & Sons. Juanita was best known for her sewing, delicious cooking and cake baking (a trait she passed down to her grandson, Anthony). She was also known for being dressed in her Sundays’ best with her many hats, protective nature and her playful but outgoing personality. Her family loved the way she displayed her affection, especially when she joked with the older grandkids and told them “I’ma beat yo butt” or when she attended family functions, she’d say, “gimme some white potato salad.” Juanita was loved by many and the memories of her will be cherished and remembered by all.
Mother Juanita was preceded in death by three children: Bertha Ann Gee, Marion Friday and Clarence Moore.
