Billie Juanita Montgomery Grantham

Juanita passed away June 13th, 2024 at home surrounded by her loving family. She was born April 13, 1928 in Pineville, Louisiana. She was raised in Lloyds Bridge, Louisiana and later moved to Oakdale, Louisiana. She met and married Tommy C. Grantham and they moved to Alexandria, Louisiana. There they raised their 3 children.

Those who have gone before include: her parents, Charlie and Doyle Young Montgomery, Tommy C. Grantham (spouse), in-law parents, John and Edna Grantham; grandsons, Casey T. Woods and Jeremy M. Calton; and on-in-law, Mike McGoldrick.

She is survived by her son, Michael W. Grantham (Sandy); daughters, Melanie Woods McGoldrick and Melissa G. Calton (David) ; grandchildren, Amy Grandaw (Don), Christy Gereighty (Andrew), Ashley C.

Juanita was a well-respected florist in Alexandria, La. She was employed at Candice and Tiffany’s, Johnnie’s Flower Box, Amy’s Floral Design and Perkins Flower Shop.

She was devoted to Our Jesus Christ and always wanted whoever she was with to know how much Jesus loves them!!! So on her behalf, I ask you know “If you haven’t given your life to Christ, won’t you please do that now?” We her children know where our mother is today, do you know you will be? Please give your life to Christ, I promise you won’t be sorry!!!!

    Juanita Grantham was a second mother to my sister and me. It’s hard to let her go from this earth, but there is no doubt that she is now in glory. She was an inspiration to me and a wonderful Christian role model. Until we meet again!❤️ Love you forever!
