Juanita Fern Gathright, of Hobbs, passed into the arms of angels on September 6, 2021 surrounded by those who love her. She was born March 29, 1929 to Thad and Annie Patrick in Troy, Oklahoma, one of three children. A funeral service in her honor will be held at 2pm, Friday, September 10, 2021 at Griffin Funeral Home. Family and friends that wish to come and pay respects before the service are welcome that morning from 10am until service time. Interment will follow the services at Prairie Haven Cemetery.
Juanita was a loving and dedicated mother, grandmother, sister, and friend. Although she could be contrary at times, there was never any doubt about her love for her family. When she was not working, Juanita enjoyed playing cards, bingo and carnival games. She also had a deep and abiding faith in God, baptized into the McAlister Indian Baptist Church on April 20, 1957. She leaves behind so many precious memories in the hearts of her family.
Juanita is preceded in passing by her parents, Thad and Annie, son Donald Berry and her beloved husband Walter Gathright.
Left to treasure her memories are her children Michael Berry and Brenda Berry, grandchildren Patrick (Natalie) Thompson, Shannon (Sandy) Thompson, Kristofer (Sonya) Thompson, great grandchildren Jessica, Miquela, Erik and Joseph Thompson, and her siblings Doyle Patrick and Deloise Tucker.
The family would like to thank Encompass hospice for their exceptional compassion and care during this difficult time.
