Juanita Tedder Boswell

May 2, 84, 

Juanita Tedder Boswell suddenly passed away on Saturday, May 2, 2020 at her home just two days after the family celebrated her 84rd birthday.

Juanita was born in Johnston County on April 30, 1936, the youngest child of 14 children, to the late Eric and Elizabeth Williamson Tedder. She was married for over 30 years to Franklin Dwight Boswell, Sr. who died at the young age of 49. Juanita was a valued employee of Eaton Corporation in Selma before her retirement.

Her warmth, generosity, and kind spirit were well known and cherished by those she encountered throughout her life. Many will remember her for making the wonderful cakes that she shared with others. Juanita found joy in simple pleasures: visits from family and friends as well as watching a good baseball game on the television.

Grandma and Grams, as she was affectionately called by her grandchildren and great-grandchildren, was a true Christian lady who loved God and lived each day showing those around her what faith in action is all about. She was caring, giving, loving, and yes — feisty and could even be called spicey!

A service celebrating Juanita’s life will be held for family and close friends on Monday, May 4, 2020 at the Boswell Family Cemetery near her home.

Juanita is survived by her daughter, Becky Mozingo and husband Jerry of Pikeville; son, Franklin Dwight Boswell, Jr. and wife Kim of Pikeville; grandchildren, Tracy Hales (Gary), Amanda Cummings (Corbett), Cortney Laub (Garry), Cameron Boswell (Alex) and Landon Coleman (Jessica); great-grandchildren, Rylie Hales, Laney Hales, Evan Cummings, Mackenzie Boswell, Adley Cummings, Maddie Hales, and Laikyn Coleman; and many nieces and nephews she loved very much.
