She was born February 15, 1927, at Mountain View, Missouri, to Docia Cleo Hight Wiley.

She had a wonderful sense of humor and was very patriotic. Juanita was active in the VFW Auxiliary and had served a term as president. She had a heart for volunteering and spent time with a special group of “dancing buddies” who visited a local nursing home on a regular basis and performed for the residents. Juanita loved to travel and was able to take numerous trips with her friends and family; most of all she loved spending time with her family. Mrs. Kirk was a faithful fan of the St. Louis Cardinals and loved watching their games on TV.
