Obituary for Juna T Herbison (Krum)

Juna Temperance Herbison, age 94 years and 10 months, passed into her heavenly home on Sunday, April 19, 2015. She was surrounded by her family as they cared for her in her apartment during this short illness.

Juna was born June 2, 1920 at her parent’s farm which was east of Stanton. She was the first daughter of the eight children born to Morris & Mary (Mosier) Krum. She worked on the family farm and attended the Centerville One Room School House that was located on the corner of Klees and Cedar Lake Roads. She graduated from the Stanton High School in 1938 and left a lasting impression on her classmates with her athletic abilities. At Rainbow Gardens Roller Rink in Crystal she met Don Herbison whom she married on December 21, 1941 and they were blessed with 61 years of marriage until his death in 2003. She was also preceded in death by her parents, brothers and sister-in-laws Keith Krum, Merle & Cleo Krum, Max Krum, George & Joyce Krum a sister and brother-in-law, Freida Cesar and brother-in-law Chester & Jessie Main, a son, David Herbison and a granddaughter Anita Herbison.

The word family was very special to Juna. She is survived by her natural family, son Bruce & Pat Herbison of Stanton, daughter Janice & David Parsons of Mt. Pleasant, Michigan, daughter-in-law Elaine Herbison of Meridan, Mississippi. She was a wonderful grandmother to her eight grandchildren; David & Stephanie Herbison of Dover, Delaware, James Parsons of Mt. Pleasant, Michele DeHaan of Stanton, Dana Axtell of Meridan, Kimberly & Timothy Schlehuber of Mt. Pleasant, Jennifer & Jeremy Swan of Stanton, Todd Parsons of Mt. Pleasant and Brad & Crystal Parsons of Alma. Great Grandchildren are also very special and include Alexandra, Luke, Escha, Selena, Jarod, Bryce D., Bryce A., Miles, Zachery, Faith, Ashley, Chlesea, Corey, Hannah, Angela, Gillian and Ty. She is also survived by her youngest brother Earle & Ruth Krum of Stanton, brother-in-law Don & Carol Cesar of Stanton, sister-in-law Pat Cadaret of Stanton and Margaret Leach of Lansing.

Her second family was her church family. Juna was a charter member of the Trinity Evangelical Free Church of Stanton. She served the church family in many ways throughout the years. Traveling ministers and missionaries were frequent guests in the Herbison house. They didn’t often have a lot, but there was always room at the table for another plate. Above all else, she was a faithful prayer warrior – remembering each family member by name several times during each day and throughout the night.

Juna’s third family were her dear friends and neighbors at Myrtle Mae Apartments in Stanton where she made her home for over 20 years.

Like many others during World War II, Juna began working outside the home while her husband served in the Pacific Theater. She spent many years as a telephone operator in Stanton and later was a bookkeeper for Thachters Motor Sales in Stanton and Chapin Auto Sales in both their Stanton and Greenville garages. She left the business world to care for her ailing father and several other family members and dear friends.
Visitation with Juna’s family will be on Wednesday, April 22, 2015 from 4 – 8 PM at the Trinity Evangelical Free Church, located at 415 N. Mill Street in Stanton.

Funeral services for Juna will be on Thursday, April 23, 2015 also at the Trinity Evangelical Free Church beginning at 12 Noon with Pastors Mark Edwards and Craig Clapper officiating. Juna’s family will also be receiving friends and family prior to the funeral from 11 AM to 12 Noon. Following the luncheon at the church, there will be a graveside service at Forest Hill Cemetery which will start at 3 PM.

Juna left this earth with a legacy of faith in her Lord and Savior and unconditional love for her families and friends.

The family would like to thank all those who helped them these past weeks: Pastor Mark Edwards, Alma Hospital ER staff, Montcalm County EMS, Sheridan Community Hospital ER staff, Dr. Breckner, Spectrum Butterworth Neuro ICU, AMR Ambulance, Mid-Michigan Home Care and Hospice, Marilyn Adams and Pastor Craig Clapper.
