Juanita “Nita” Larkin-Haney, age 55, returned home to be with the Lord on January 7, 2020.
Juanita, affectionately referred to as Nita or Nee Nee was born on March 11, 1965 to parents James Thurman Larkin Sr. and Lois Jean Larkin. Nita had a gregarious personality with a compassionate heart, which made her a close confidant to many. Those same qualities also led her to a career in the medical field, as helping others was her true calling. As a child, Nita met the boy who would eventually become her husband and lifelong soulmate, Timothy Haney. The two enjoyed a blissful union for over 40 years and shared one child, their beloved son Timothy Larkin-Haney of Miami, Fla. Nita was also devoted to and played a large role in the lives of her nieces and nephews: Brittany Larkin, originally of Donora; Cierra Larkin of Donora, Pa; Noah Simmons and Zoe Larkin of Belle Vernon and Richard Larkin of Donora. She is preceded in death by her father, James Larkin Sr. and her sister, Sharon “Boonie” Larkin-Jones. She is survived by her husband, Timothy Haney and a host of other family and friends. Nita made a lasting impact on all who knew and adored her and will be greatly missed.
