Juanita “Nita” Leaman Senac of Cuero passed away, Thursday, May 18, 2017. She was born in New Orleans, Louisiana on June 5, 1919. She was the only child of the late Charles John Leaman and Elizabeth “Dolly” Daubert Leaman.
She grew up in New Orleans where she met and married Jules Mernan “Buck” Senac on April 16, 1937.
Their 63 years together found them moving from New Orleans to Kansas City, Missouri, Seattle, Washington, back to Kansas City, Houston, and finally Cuero.
She and Buck had one daughter, Suzanne “Suzie” Post (Nathan, her favorite son-in-law).
