Juanita was born in Teague, Texas on July 13, 1933 to H.C. and Audrey Jones Gore. She was a retired florist and lived in Mexia most of her life. In the Class of 1950 Mexia High School Senior Class Prophecy, hers stated “Juanita Gore will own her own flower shop.” She worked for many years at Peg & Dasa Flowers before owning Mexia Florist. In recent years, she asked her daughter, “Can you believe I’ve been married three times?” She was married to Robert Daniels for 25 years and they had two perfect children (Phillip and Susan) who gave them 5 perfect grandchildren. After parting ways with Robert, Juanita married Dick Hitt in 1978. They were very much in love and enjoyed a great life together. Sadly, Dick passed away in 1989 after a tough fight with cancer. Juanita had no interest in ever getting married again.
She enjoyed her life as a florist and grandmother. Then in 2005, her sister and brother‐in‐law (Ouija & Jesse) invited her to go to dinner with them and a close friend of Jesse’s from church. That is how she met her current husband, Albert J Dvorak. They loved each other completely and had 15 amazing years together. They were inseparable and spent lots of time traveling and visiting family. Juanita is survived by her daughter Susan Womack (Robert) of Garland, Texas; siblings Gene Gore (Linda Joy) of Spring, Texas, and J.W. Gore, of Mexia, Texas; grandchildren Sean Womack (Michelle), Robyn Luther (Stephen), Ryan Lynn Burleigh (Mikey), and Jay Daniels; numerous stepchildren, great‐ grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and cousins.
Juanita was preceded in death by her parents; siblings Christopher Gore, Alford Gore, Linda McCoslin, Avis Willis, Terry Gore, Madie Watson, and Ellen (Ouija) Zempel; son Phillip Daniels; daughter‐in‐law Marti Daniels; grandson Allen Womack.
Like all her siblings, Juanita loved and was loved deeply.
