Juanita was born in Montclair (also known as the “Frog Hollow”), New Jersey on 10/16/1948. She was born to Ora Lee Haley of Florence, Alabama, and Sylvester Robert Haley of New Jersey. She was also one of 8 children which include the late Joyce Thompson (sister), the late Lena Mae Haley (sister), and the late Douglas Haley. Her surviving siblings are Ora Phelps (sister), Laverne Williams (sister), Robert Haley (brother), and Roger Haley (brother). As well as a host family including her brother-in-law, nieces, and nephews who love her dearly include her Ernest Phelps (brother-in-law), Tyralyn L. Phelps (niece), Dauna Thompson (niece), Davone Thompson (nephew), Kemone Thompson (nephew), the late Taryn Haley (niece), Tamika Haley (niece), the late Hughlee N. Haley (nephew), Syretta Kersee (niece), Sherri Green (niece) and Lamonte Phelps (nephew).  She also leaves behind a host of great nieces and great nephews.

She also was well-loved by her husband’s family (Rueben Jolley) with open arms they are her sister-in-law, Kathy Williams, her sister-in-law Teresa Banks, sister-in-law Susan Rawlins and her husband Keith Rawlins brother-in-law Curtis Jolley and sister-in-law, a host of nieces and nephews. 

As the spouse of an Army veteran, Juanita lived in several locations including Fort Rucker, Alabama; Fort Lee, Virginia; Radcliff (Fort Knox) Kentucky; Berlin, Germany, and her last place of residence was in North Las Vegas, Nevada where she resided with her beloved husband, Reuben Jolley.

She was employed at several locations while traveling around the world. She worked at Houston Bowling Center (H.B.C.) in Fort Knox, Kentucky. While working at H.B.C. she became a avid bowler and enjoyed participating in a weekly bowling league.  During this time, this is where she met the love of her life and husband, Reuben.  In Berlin, Germany she worked at the Judge Advocate General's Corps (JAG) office for military personnel. Her last job and where she retired was at the Clark County Courthouse.

At an early age, Juanita accepted Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior and was baptized at her family church ‘Union Baptist Church in Montclair’, New Jersey. In early 2000, she became an ordained minister by Bishop Moore in Hot Springs, Arkansas. Also, known as "Elder Jolley" she was a very active, committed, and proud member & leader of "The House of Deliverance Ministries” in Las Vegas, Nevada under the guise of Pastor & Prophetess Betty Smith who also trained Elder Jolley.  She served as an Elder and leader in the church but one of her most important roles was her commitment over the last 20+ years in the church ministry.  She bore witness and spread the goodness of the word of GOD to her community and strangers in her travels around the world with the church. More than anything she was a devout and dedicated Christian, relentless and faithful servant to God. One thing about ‘Elder’ (as she was so affectionately called by her church members), she was a true prayer warrior. Upon a text or a telephone call to her and without a moment of hesitation, she would pray for people with powerful, unrelenting, and resounding fervor. 

Juanita will be sorely missed by all of the lives that she met and touched which included a host of lifetime friends and family from around the world. But she most of all will be immensely and deeply missed by her husband, daughter, and family. The family’s true source of comfort and peace is knowing that Juanita Louise's spirit has now arrived in the Kingdom of God and she is smiling down from Heaven with a new promotion…Angel wings and a well-deserved seat in Heaven. 

We Love you and Miss You So Very Much!
