Funeral to be held for crash victim, Juanita Ann Waller, at Landover church

Friends and family of a woman who died in a car wreck earlier this month in Fairfax County have announced plans for her funeral.

The “homegoing” or funeral for Juanita Ann Waller, 54, described as a behind-the-scenes pillar at the First Baptist Church of Glenarden, will hold her funeral there Monday. The church is at 3600 Brightseat Road in Landover and services are open to the public.

The viewing will be 9:30 to 11 a.m. Monday, and the funeral service will start at 11. Following the service, family and friends will gather at the church’s Ministry Center.

Waller and a sister-in-law, Shyrel Scott-Waller, 53, of Chester, Pa., were killed in the wreck off Interstate 66 in Fairfax County.

Juanita’s brother, Clarence R. Waller, was driving, and fatigue appeared to be a factor in the crash, according to Virginia State Police.

The three were going to a funeral for Scott-Waller’s father in Virginia, said Juanita Waller’s sister, Yolanda. Juanita Waller was the oldest of five and the family’s “glue,” Yolanda said.
