Juanita Overton Bull, 84

Juanita Overton Bull 84, beloved mother and Nana to her kids and grandchildren, formerly of Kingston TN went to her heavenly home on May 23, 2024, with her children and family standing vigil by her bedside.

She was a graduate of Hixson High School where she was the leader of the marching band as drum majorette, voted most talented, standout basketball player, joined and served as an officer of multiple clubs, and was voted Miss Hixson her senior year. After marrying, she went on to raise 4 beautiful children in the rolling hills of east Tennessee and attended First Baptist Church of Etowah. She worked at Morgan’s Manufacturing and coached girls’ basketball. During all the years in Etowah, Juanita hosted the Thanksgiving feast for all her kids and their family’s making a special dish for almost everyone. Juanita later transitioned to a career in retail, working until her 73rd birthday for several notable companies from Athens Tennessee to Missoula Montana, later retiring in Helena Montana to be close to her daughter’s family and her grandkids. She spent her later years making memories with frequent trips to Yellowstone and Glacier National Park before finally moving back to Kingston TN.

Make no mistake about it, no matter where she lived, Nana’s kitchen was always ready to serve up a bowl of her homemade soup.

Survivors include her sons and daughter-in-laws Ricky & Pamela Bull, and Randy & Kelley Bull. Daughter and son-in-law Sheryl Poteet & Kenny Poteet. Her grandkids Raley Bull, Alex Bull, Nic Bull, Max Bull, Catie Morsette, Mackenzie Poteet, Garrett Poteet, Brad Dyer, Trenda Click, Stella Santiago, and Nate Parker.

The family would like to extend their heartfelt appreciation to the Kingston & Oak Ridge area Hospitals, Thompson Oncology and especially nurse Natalie, Covenant Hospice and especially nurse Mary Ann & aid Joyce and all the attending medical staff, nurses, and doctors that have been so kind to our mother as she fiercely battled several different ailments.
