PRICE-Juanna Buchanan Migliore died peacefully Nov. 23, 2007 on a beautiful and sunny late fall morning in her hometown of Price.
She was born to John and June Miller Buchanan in Helper on July 21, 1914 and, with the exception of seven years back East, she lived her life in Price.
Juanna eloped in 1934 to marry her beau Francesco Antonio Migliore (Doc to his friends and patients) in Washington, DC. They lived there and in Chicago until 1940 before returning to their roots in Price where Doc used his chiropractic skills to support his family including Michael and Launa Lee (Harvey). Doc died in 1983 and Michael in 1994 as a later-life consequence of service to his country in Vietnam. Juanna also mourned the loss of her sister Bertha (Spratling) and brothers Harry and Robert (Buck).
Juanna was an exceptional seamstress who made beautiful clothes for Launa, many friends in Price, and costumes for her grandchildren Brandon and Megan. This interest led her to work for many years selling materials and sewing notions in Price Trading where her skills and outgoing personality gained her many friends. Juanna and family spent happy times at the cabin Doc built in Scofield, a magical place now used by her children, grandchildren, and great-grandson Elliot.
Juanna was a beautiful, independent, friendly, and honest lady who dealt cheerfully with life's many challenges. She was actively involved in her community and the oldest Past President of the Price Ladies of Elks.
Her family would particularly like to thank her neighbor Norma Petrie who helped Juanna achieve her wish to live independently at home in her later years, and the amazing and caring ladies at Hospice especially Jessie who helped make that independence possible. A special thanks also to Drs. Etzel and Boyle. Juanna will be dearly missed by her family and friends.
