Andrew, founders of Andrew Corporation, Orland Park. Juanita lived a full and joyful life, enjoying hobbies such as needlepoint, collecting southwestern artwork, reading and staying abreast to current affairs. She also loved to travel the world, and instilled that love in her children and grandchildren. She was a kind and gentle woman who genuinely cared about people. Juanita was always there for her family and friends and offering her wisdom of advice when asked for it. She cherished her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She enjoyed splitting her year between Chicago and Naples and also traveling to Aiken, SC to visit her daughter Aileen and family. She was the Vice President and a member of the Board of Directors of Andrew Corporation from 1971-1989 and the Secretary and Treasurer of the Aileen S. Andrew Foundation from 1967-2002 and 1967-1990, respectively. She was also a Director of the Aileen S. Andrew Foundation from 1967 until her demise. A role that she honored greatly since it was her parent's belief to give back to the community and help others in need.
