Juanita Grimm

Dec. 14, 1916 — Dec. 9, 2013

Juanita was the youngest of six children born to Tandy and Bertha (Gipson) Myers in Hatfield, Ark. When she was 12, the family moved to Los Angeles, Calif., where in 1933, she married Virgil C. Ridings. That marriage ended in divorce. In 1948 she married Grant C. Grimm.

In 1961, Grant, Juanita and son, Gary, moved to Shingle Springs to be near her daughter, Valerie. She immediately became active in numerous clubs and community projects such as 4-H, Penny Club, Grange and Recreation Committee, to name a few. In 1955 she had the honor of being chosen as El Dorado Golden Rose. As one of the Roses, she loved dressing in period clothes and riding in parades, etc. She was a longtime member of Rescue Baptist Church.

Juanita was preceded in death by her husband, Grant; her parents; all her siblings; and two grandchildren. She is survived by her daughter, Valerie Ridings Bye and husband, Pete of Placerville; son, Ronald W. Ridings and wife, Peggy of Harrisburg, Ore.; son, Gary Grant Grimm and wife, Pauline of Winnemucca, Nev.; 10 grandchildren; 17 great-grandchildren; and 12 great-great-grandchildren.

“Like a bird singing in the rain, let graceful memories survive in time of sorrow.” — Robert Louis Stevenson

A memorial will be held in May 2014. An exact date will be announced later. Remembrances may be made to Snowline Hospice or your favorite charity.
