Juanita Roselle


Juanita Roselle, 92, of Fernandina Beach, Florida passed away peacefully November 21, 2023 at her home surrounded by family.

She was born in Farmington, Kentucky to Stella and Ollie Murdock and was raised near Mayfield, Kentucky graduating from Sedalia High School and attending Murray State College. She moved to Detroit, Michigan to accept a job in the automotive industry where she met her husband, Donald Clarence Roselle. Juanita and Donald were married in November 1953 and enjoyed life together for fifty-two years.
Throughout their marriage, Juanita enjoyed traveling. Family vacations were spent exploring different states, and each summer would include a stay in northern Michigan. Once their children were grown, Juanita and Donald expanded their travel to international excursions and continued to enjoy travel to visit and spend time with their grandchildren.

1987 they retired to Port St Lucie, Florida, where they were very active in the local United Methodist Church and Juanita participated in a wide range of United Methodist Women service projects. After moving to Fernandina to be close to family in 2017, she joined Memorial United Methodist Church.
Her lifelong hobbies included reading, sewing, and she was an avid baker, collecting many recipes throughout the years. She also enjoyed shopping, especially for others, and spending time at the beach.
She is predeceased by her husband Donald, her parents, and three siblings.

She leaves behind her children, Jennifer (Russ) Milam, Douglas (Peggy) Roselle, Elizabeth (Joe) Pirkle, eight grandchildren, fifteen great-grandchildren and her sister Jane.

A memorial service will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, a donation in her memory may be made to Florida United Methodist Children’s Home (
