Juanita June Starry Frey died on September 26, 2019 at Genesis Care Center in Twin Falls, Idaho.  Juanita was born at home on October 11, 1929 in Twin Falls, Idaho.  Juanita was the oldest daughter of Henry Aldo Starry and Mary Henrietta Christian.  Juanita lived in Twin Falls with her parents and three sisters, Billy, Pauline and Peggy who she loved dearly and would share many stories about their time growing up.

Juanita went to Lincoln O’Leary Junior High and graduated from Twin Falls High School in 1947 and soon met a young man from Missouri named Herman Alfred Frey. They were married on June 6, 1948.  The young couple moved to the Castleford area and had five sons, Richard (Sue), (Flower & Roger) Jack (Diane &  Brigg) Mark (Cindy), James (Jackie) and Quintin (Shellie); and their life was spent farming and experiencing the many adventures that five active sons would bring to their family. 

Juanita enjoyed cooking her famous popcorn balls, cast iron skillet taco pie, and her famous sheet cake.  She loved gardening and enjoyed canning and taught her daughters-in-law the art of canning.  She had an incredible faith and love for her Lord and Savior.  Juanita loved her bible study, the many friends she made, and being a member of the Castleford Grandmother’s Club. She was a kind, giving and loving wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother and friend to many.

Juanita is survived by her four sons; her sisters, Pauline and Peggy; and a number of special, unique and beautiful grandchildren and great grandchildren.  She was preceded in death by her husband, Herman; sister, Billy; son, Jack; and granddaughter, Harley.
