On September 15, 1949, Juanita was united in marriage with Hubert H. Postma at St. Rose of Lima Church in Kansas City, Kansas. After their marriage they lived in Pella, Iowa, from 1949 until 1957. To this union four children were born: Dodd, Denise, Diane, and Dawn. In 1957 the family moved to Bethany, Missouri until 1965 and then moved back to Pella.
