The Smith Union

In the fall of 1961, Juanita enrolled in College of Business at Southern University and A&M College and met Billy Smith. They began their enchanted passionate love story together. Together, they experienced segregation of the south, the Civil Rights era, and Smith-Brown riots. Their love for each other bloomed and they were married on June 2, 1973.

Juanita then gave birth to two beautiful daughters: Kenya and Kia. Juanita had an amazing relationship with her niece Jean and nephew Daniel, in which she and Billy considered as their own.
