Juanita J. Haas Truex Heubi

83; of Clarksville

Funeral services for Juanita J. Haas Truex Heubi, 83, of Clarksville, will be at 1 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 8, at Scott Funeral Home, Jeffersonville, with entombment in Graceland Mausoleum, New Albany. She died Monday, Nov. 5, 2012, at her home with her family by her side.

She was born and raised in Sellersburg. She later moved to New Albany, and worked at Woolworths and M. Fine and Son. She was also a long time resident of the Lincoln Heights neighborhood where she enjoyed many happy years. Her greatest joys were her family and singing. Those of us fortunate enough to hear her sing, knew she had the voice of an angel, for she truly was an angel on earth. She sang professionally during the “Big Band” era for many years. Later she continued to do professional solo work as well as sing in church choirs, including Wall Street United Methodist Church in Jeffersonville, where she and her late husband, Magnus, were long standing members.

Survivors include her son, T.E. Truex with his wife, Lorena and their two daughters, Megan and Alexa; four sisters, Vashti Brocar, Bonnie Isaacs and her husband, Frank, Jill Mallory and her husband, Clayton and Paulina Baxter; several nieces, nephews, grand nieces and grand nephews; Dottie Truex and Sylvia Galligan (her longtime friend and neighbor); and her three primary caregivers, Rose Thomas, Susan Brocar and Virginia Meyers.

She was preceded in death by her husband of 32 years, Magnus Heubi (2008); first husband, E.G. Truex (1972); her parents, Don and Jane Haas; her sister, Barbara Haworth; three brothers-in-law, Charles Baxter, Jim Haworth and  Robert Brocar; a grand-nephews, Chris Jones; and Glenn Truex.

Visitation will be from 2 to 8 p.m. today, and after 9 a.m. Thursday, at the funeral home.

She will be dearly missed on earth, but welcomed in heaven. On behalf of Juanita’s family, friends and all of the lives she touched, thank you.
