JUANITA COBB USSERY Mrs. Ussery, age 94, of Indialantic, FL formerly of West Palm Beach, FL was welcomed home by the Angels on Monday, October 15, 2010. Juanita was born on July 22, 1916 in Shamrock, OK and in 1919 moved to the South Florida area coming from Charleston, WV with her aunt and uncle whom adopted her following the sudden loss of her parents during the "Great Flu Epidemic." Juanita resided in the Historic District section of Flamingo Park for most of her life in Palm Beach County. She lovedher Lord and attended the former First United Methodist Church of West Palm Beach for Sunday morning worship, which is now the Performing Arts Center at City Place. She was a Palm Beach High School graduate. Juanita was a former member of the Las Megas (Bridge Players) Group which met in Palm Beach. Mrs. Ussery was employed by Macy's-Burdines for many years and worked in the Inventory Control Department and she also worked in Palm Beach as a Custom Seamstress on Worth Avenue. She loved making custom dresses for her daughter, Sheila's high school years at Palm Beach High School. Juanita could look at a dress design while window shopping with her daughter, she would then reach into her purse and pull out a sketch pad and sketch the dress in the window, go home and make the same identical dress for Sheila. She also loved working the earth planting flowers and gardening in her yard. Juanita was the "Rock" of the family the "ethereal glue" that held the family together. She will be most assuredly missed by all of those who knew and loved her!
