Juana was born October 20, 1924 to Jose Borunda and Marina Ordones in San Miguel, Chihuahua, Mexico.

She was known for her beautiful crocheting, reading, and her love for all of her children and grandchildren, but perhaps what endeared Juana to so many was her capacity for compassion, her unwavering support, and her ability to bring joy to those around her with her beautiful laugh. She cherished her time with family and friends, creating lasting memories that will forever be treasured. She was a pillar of strength during difficult times, offering her wisdom and love to those in need.
