Juanita Earl

November 8, 1925 — May 8, 2016

Juanita (McEntire) Earl, 90, passed away on May 8, 2016 in Bettendorf, IA.
She was born on November 8, 1925 in Bellefontaine, OH, a daughter of Charles L. and Alice (Phelps) McEntire. She worked for Wright Patterson Air Force Base and was transferred to Georgia and then Tennessee. Juanita loved the South and had always wished she was back there. She retired from Wright Patterson Air Force Base/International Logistics for Turkey. She made multiple trips to Turkey, giving her the opportunity to travel to Switzerland and Paris.
Juanita loved working in her yard and gardens and often admired her flowers while sitting on her front porch. She also had a love of ice cream and all things chocolate. She would give up dinner and ask for ice cream instead.
Survivors include her children, Steven Earl (Victoria Rile) and Lisa Earl Penn (John McCabe); 8 grandchildren; and 8 great-grandchildren.
She was preceded in death by her parents; son, Douglas Christopher Earl; and her sisters. Her beloved cat Sprite and dog Pepsi will be laid to rest with her.
The family wishes to thank the staff of Clarissa Cook Hospice House in Bettendorf, IA and the Good Samaritan Society for their care of Juanita.
A private graveside service will be held at the convenience of the family.
