Juanita Galvan of Omaha, NE went to be with her Lord and Savior, Saturday January 9, 2021. Juanita was better known as “Charlie” to all her friends and family. She graduated Kearney Catholic High School and College of St. Mary’s, Omaha.
Charlie was a talented artist who made art appreciation her life’s ambition. For 40 years Charlie owned and operated Gloria’s Custom Framing in Rockbrook Village where she also did paintings and framing restoration. In 1991 she took over operation of the Rockbrook Village Art Fair where her energy was contagious and addictive to all the artists and volunteers. It was her drive that made the Rockbrook art fair the oldest and best in Omaha. Six years ago, Charlie also took over running the Countryside Village Art Fair. She boosted the attendance and greatly improved the caliber of the art in the show. All of this made her biggest wish come true – to bring a true appreciation of the arts to as many people as possible.
Charlie had many interests from art to sports and living life to the fullest. Her love and generous spirit were truly enveloping in that no one was a stranger. She was blessed with fantastic friends, great customers, amazing mentors and business associates who all helped her pursue her passion for art.
Charlie was preceded in death by her mother and father, Merle and Micala Galvan of Kearney, NE; sister, Carmelita; brother, Merle. She is survived by brothers: John, Esteban and Martin; sisters, Vivian and Kathy; several nieces and nephews and an endless host of friends.
“Charlie, Charlie! Our hearts ache with your leaving. We love you and will forever miss you!”
