AMOROSO, Juanita Marie

April 7, 1950 – Fort Qu’Appelle, Saskatchewan
May 17, 2019 – Calgary, Alberta

Juanita Amoroso (Nita, Deda) of Calgary, Alberta, passed away on Friday, May 17, 2019 at the age of 69 years.

Juanita was born in Fort Qu’Appelle, Saskatchewan on April 7 1950. She was a woman with many talents and was a licenced beautician, a trade certified industrial seamstress and in 1989 she graduated from the Columbia Institute S.T.R.I.D.E program.

Juanita had gained countless volunteer hours throughout her life, helping people by selflessly donating her time and the fruits of her many talents. She accomplished much through her life but was particularly proud of her travels and teaching her daughters all she knew. Juanita had a passion for the outdoors, traveling, cross-stitching, ceramic art, knitting, crocheting , embroidering, stain glass, bead work, jewellery making, sewing, painting, and had created her own line of hand crafted bath and skin care products, just to name a few.

Juanita loved traveling to Las Vegas and would go whenever the opportunity came up. She loved the open road and always chose a road trip over flying, listening to her music and singing along. She loved walking along the ocean, and driving through the Redwood forest. She would stand in silent awe the edge of the Grand Canyon looking over its vast expanse taking in the colors as the sun set enjoying watching the shadows dance. Juanita loved the fog and misty mornings and would often be found sitting in the rain waiting to hear the thunder. Her favourite Poem was “Footprints”. Juanita will be most remembered for generosity, laughter, quick wit and wisdom.

Juanita is survived her two daughters, Carmela Amoroso and Miranda Amoroso; her five sisters Veronica Rope, Lina Runns, Diane McArthur, Doreen McArthur, Donna McArthur; her two godchildren Davina and William; and many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

Mom you will be forever missed and always loved. Thank you for every wonderful memory, lesson, hug, kiss and laugh. Be at peace and walk with the wind… we will be listening for you and watching for you in the sunset.

Funeral Services will be held at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY (Fish Creek, 14441 Bannister Road S.E., Calgary, AB) on Sunday, June 2, 2019 at 2:00 p.m. Condolences may be forwarded through
