Juanita Montoya

June 24, 1949 — December 27, 2022

Juanita requested that we refrain from expressing the many milestones and accolades that we have the potential to express with this letter, so our family has provided a brief statement.

Juanita Montoya was a humble individual who loved her faith, family and friends. Even though she was very intelligent, managed a successful business, was gifted with a beautiful voice and musicianship; she remained humble and willingly chose to serve, rather than to be served. She embodied the virtues of faith, love, hope and charity. When she entered a room, these traits were evident. She truly breathed and embodied love and you can’t teach that.

Juanita would want you to hug your loved ones, be there for them, sing your hearts out with your favorite songs, be forgiving, stay strong during any struggle and stay very close to your faith as she always did, (and much more than we can list).

She is survived by her husband of 53 years, Nestor Montoya, her children, Jeanette (Gabriel) Hernandez, Michael (Tara) Montoya, Javier Montoya, her grandchildren, Raul Nestor, Salina Monique, Joseph Jude, Sudden-Rio, London-Lisette and her sister, Angie Chavez.

She was preceded in death by her mother, Emma Angeles, her sister, Dolores Jaramillo and her firstborn son, Jude Montoya. Juanita Montoya, our angel 9:43 a.m., (AZ time), June 24, 1949 - December 27, 2022. It is finished here; yet has just begun.

Rosary will be held Tuesday, January 3, 2023 at 10:00 a.m. at St. John the Baptist Catholic Church, St. Johns, followed by a memorial Mass at 11:00 a.m.
