Juanita Baxter loses battle with cancer
After a brief, but courageous battle with a very aggressive return of cancer (mestasticized melanoma), Juanita Baxter died on July 15th, 2008 at her family log cabin by Pony Lake, in the bush 45 minutes northwest of Fort Frances.
Juanita was the wife of Ian Bruce, of the Bruce Tree Expert Company.
Juanita was interred by graveside service Friday, July 18th at the Finland Cemetery, a small, nicely kept country cemetery on Lampi Road., within eyesight of her family home on Hwy. 71.
A gathering of friends, neighbours and relatives from Southern Ontario will be planned in the near future.
