Juanita Hughes Wise

Juanita Hughes Wise, age 72, passed away peacefully in the arms of her daughter Layla on January 24, 2022 at her home. A daughter of the late Calvin and Deckie Hughes, she was a direct descendant of Jeremiah Hughes, founder of Roaring Creek. She was born on Roaring Creek December 18, 1949, one of 7 siblings. She was a cherished grandmother, mother, and sibling. Juanita was preceded in death by: Her daughters Meloney and Melody Bowers, Sons James Robert Cook, Jr and Jeremy Shawn Cook. Her sister Sharon Kaye Hughes. Grandchildren Tylor Nathaniel Cook and Ashley Bianca Cook. Left to cherish her memory is her: daughter, Layla Jarrett and 10 grandchildren, and numerous great grandchildren. Her brothers William Hughes, Joe Hughes, and sisters Becky Wise, and Carron Putman.

Juanita loved God, her family, her pets, and flowering. She had many different jobs through out her life, but loved sewing and cooking. She helped mother her granddaughter Leanne Cole, who adored her. And was always there when her family needed her. She was her granddaughter, Christy Jarrett’s favorite person and they enjoyed spending time together more than anything.

The family will receive friends for Juanita Wise Friday January 28th, 2022 from 5pm to 7pm at Banner Elk United Methodist Church. A service honoring Juanita will follow at 7pm. Words of comfort and memories may be shared with the family and viewed on the tribute wall. The care of Juanita and Her family has been entrusted to Beam Funeral Service and Crematory.
