Cecelia Juarez was born on January 1, 1934 in Davenport, a daughter of Ignacio and Carmen (Garnica) Juarez.  She was united in marriage to John E. Barker on September 3, 1966 in Davenport.  He preceded her in death on March 19, 2014 after 48 years of marriage together.

Cecelia worked for IH Mississippi Valley Credit Union retiring in 1994 after 28 years of service.

Cecelia enjoyed entertaining at her home in Rock Island.  She and John spent a lot of time at the Rock Island Elks Lodge socializing with their many friends. She also enjoyed traveling and gardening.  Since Cecelia didn’t have children of her own, her nieces and nephews became her surrogate children and she loved to spoil and spend time with them, taking each one on a trip.  She adored her canine companion, Winston.

Memorials may be made to ManorCare-Utica Ridge.

Survivors include her sister-in-law, Lucy Juarez; nieces and nephews: Chris (Michelle) Juarez, Lisa (Mark) Stichter, Robert (Nancy) Juarez, Ana Welchert, Anthony (Lucy) Valainis, Nina (Stan) DeMay, all of Davenport, Gina (Rod) Muilenburg, Oregon, and Lorita (Mark) Levy, Florida, and many great nieces and nephews.

In addition to her husband, she was preceded in death by her parents, siblings: Rudy Juarez, Molly Valainis, brother-in-law, John Valainis and nephew-in-law, Jim Welchert.  May they rest in peace.
