This was written by Tara J. Day and describes my mother perfectly:

 

Junie, as she was lovingly called by family members, is remembered by her great niece, Tara J. Day with the following: Junie pursued and achieved many of her dreams. Often these dreams and aspirations were beyond a woman for her time, but she never let that stop her. She was a woman of the most impressive balance of character of any human that would have crossed your path. She had great intelligence, strong opinions, amazing determination, a passion for adventure and the most generous, kind and forgiving heart. For those of us that were fortunate enough to be a part of her journey, she gave us a wonderful example to live by. She showed us how to live, doing what we desire and not to let limitations get in our way. She walked tall with confidence and gave us endless support in our endeavors. She demonstrated to us all how to stand for what you believe ;in and how to do it with grace. But most importantly she lived this life of strength, passion and determination, with tremendous amount of generosity and love. She was a woman before her time and a life so well lived, those of us she has left behind, have much to do to fill her void.
