Juanita McGill

October 9, 1929 ~ June 3, 2019 (age 89)


Juanita McGill, daughter of Eugene and Sadie Buffalo, was born October 29, 1929 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She silently departed this life June 3, 2019

In 1951, she was united in holy matrimony to William Howard McGill and from this union, their children, Gregory, Jo, Glen and Steven were born. They remained happily married for 46 years.

She was a stay-at-home mom who loved attending all of her children’s sports activities over the years. Her love for designing clothes lead her to run her own business developing her own custom design dresses, gowns, formal wear and accessories.

She lived a healthy lifestyle growing her own vegetables and always trying to eat right. She loved to get out and walk as a way to stay active and meet people.

But most of all she loved her children and her grandchildren. She was very proud of them all and loved to talk to them and brag about them.

Her spirit now watches over and continues to cherish those who remain: her daughter JoAnn and her sons Gregory David, Glen Anthony and Steven Thomas, her sister Leola Mouzon, her niece Sharon; her grandchildren: Matthew, Sanura, Devon, Amelia, Autumn and Maximus, her daughters-in-law Robin, Joy and Liimu along with a host of other relatives and friends.

She was greatly loved and will be sorely missed
