Juanita Lucille (Longsine) Harms, 91 years of age, of Holdrege, Nebraska (formerly of Oxford, Nebraska) passed away on Wednesday, June 5, 2013 at Holdrege Memorial Homes. She was born on April 3, 1922 at Nehawka, Nebraska, the only child born to John L. and Anna M. (Jones) Simpkins. Juanita received her primary education from the Carrisbrook Rural School, west of Stamford and then graduated from Stamford High School with the class of 1940.
Following her education, Juanita was united in marriage to Frank L. Longsine on February 7, 1941 at Hollinger, Nebraska and to this union two daughters were born: Terry and Dawn. The family made their home on a farm south of Stamford until moving to Arapahoe, Nebraska, where they resided for several years until settling back to Stamford. In September of 1961, Juanita was preceded in death by her husband, Frank due to a farm accident.
During her lifetime, Juanita was employed by the Stamford Elevator, the Stamford Telephone Company, worked as a nurse's aide and waitress in several communities throughout the state during these difficult years.
On June 26, 1978 she was united in marriage to Norman J. Harms and the couple resided in Beatrice, Nebraska prior to his passing. In later years, Juanita moved back to Oxford, until making her home at Holdrege Memorial Homes due to her failing health.
Juanita's will to live, work ethic, and resolve to carry-on throughout life was admired by her family and friends, even after a severe third degree burn accident.
Besides her parents and two husbands; Juanita was preceded in death by several brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law.
She is survived by her two daughters: Terry Dyer and her husband, Doug of Axtell, Nebraska and Dawn Quinn and her husband, Mike of Oxford; four grandchildren: Tami Lewis, Dale Dyer, Cody Quinn and Paige Quinn; five great-grandchildren; two great-great grandchildren; and other relatives and friends.
