Juanita “Chick” Giles, 84, of Wheelersburg, formerly of Sciotoville, died Tuesday, September 29, 2015, at the SOMC Hospice Center. Born on March 3, 1931 in Portsmouth, she was a daughter of the late William and Agnes Carr Shump and was a former cashier for Glockner’s for over 20 years. Chick was a member of the Sciotoville Christ United Methodist Church.
Juanita was a stay at home mom and was honored to be a caregiver to her mother and other family members. Many will reflect on her wonderful cooking, where home cooked meals were always available. A graduate of East High School, Ed and Chick’s home was the Sciotoville hangout for the neighborhood kids: playing pool, basketball, board games and “just hanging out”.
Also preceding her in death were her husband, Edward F. Giles, four brothers, Don, Curtis, Dennis and Marvin Shump and a sister, Dorothy Yeagle.
Surviving are a son, Bruce (Kathy) Giles of Wheelersburg, a daughter, Marsha (Wendell) Skinner of Sciotoville, four grandchildren, Troy Skinner, Scott Skinner, Jodi Lynn Giles and Brennon Giles, and a great-granddaughter, Laiken Skinner.
