Juanita was born August 6, 1951, in Bellingham, Washington. She moved with her parents to Spokane and attended school at St. Joseph's. After high school, she went to work, where she met the love of her life, Rick. They worked together from then on and shared a loving married life of 37 wonderful years.
Not being blessed with children, she became a mother of nature, and devoted her life to her husband and all living creatures. She raised her horses, goats, rabbits, birds, cats and happy dogs. She loved her flowers and working in the gardens.
Juanita was an NRA member; she loved to camp, fish and hunt. She enjoyed shooting in competitions and was a great cook.
Juanita and Rick settled in Bonners Ferry in 1999, living in the Good Grief area for the past 13 years. She was a beautiful and very strong woman, battling her illness and heart trouble the past two years.
She never complained and always thought of others above herself. She will be deeply missed by her family and friends alike.
Juanita is survived by her husband, Rick Matlock; brother, Ted Carter and sister, Connie Johnson, both of Spokane.
No more pain, no more suffering, I love you; see you on the other side, wrapped in the Lord's loving arms.
