Juanita Faraci was born January 9, 1922, and died May14, 2022, having recently observed her 100th birthday. She was preceded in death by her father and mother, Anderson Warlick and Emma Marbury Moore Warlick; her husband of 68 years, Vincent Faraci and their infant daughter, Rose. She was also pre-deceased by her sisters Dorothy Jarrell, Jackie Hightower and Katie Lawson; brothers A.C. Warlick, Jr., Frank Moore, Victor Moore and Claude Moore.
Left to cherish her memory are daughters Kay Faraci, Theresa Faraci Cotton (Roland), and Fay Faraci Johnson (Louis). She is also survived by granddaughters Heather Cotton Hemphill (John), Maggie Cotton Nelson (Jason), Jennifer Johnson Vosburg (Chad) and grandson Patrick Johnson (Christy) as well as four great grandsons: Asher Nelson, Trouper Nelson, Trey Hemphill and Justin Vosburg, and two great granddaughters: Anna Vosburg and Allison Johnson.
Juanita and Vincent were married when she was 16 years of age. She was a devoted wife and a loving mother. Having married into a large Italian family, Mother became an excellent “Italian cook”---not bad for an Irish lady! She was a devout catholic and a member of St Matthew Catholic church since 1939.
We in the family always knew, without a doubt, when it was Friday. We knew it was Friday because grandma was at the beauty shop. When she finally quit driving (at age 96!) it was well understood that someone had better be available on Friday morning for the beauty shop run. Even in her failing days the hair needed to be pristine---sweet memory!
Pallbearers will be Jason Nelson, John Hemphill, Chad Vosburg, Patrick Johnson, Asher Nelson, Trey Hemphill, Justin Vosburg and A.C. Warlick. Honorary pallbearers will be Trouper Nelson, Louis Johnson and Roland Cotton.
The family requests that any planned memorials be made to St. Jude’s or The American Heart Association.
