Hi. I'm not related to this family. I think Juanita may have been the only child of Otis Glen & Dana Mosser.

Here is this family in 1920:

1920 United States Federal Census about Juanita Mosser
Name:        Juanita Mosser
[Jaunita Mosser]

Marital Status:        Single
Father's Name:        Glen Mosser

Dana Mosser        25 -wife- b. 1895 Ill, par b. Ill
Juanita Mosser        7 -dau- b. 1913 Ill

By 1930, Juanita may have already been married:

Here is a WWII draft card for Otis Glenn:
https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/V1KC-B81

Glen was living in Decatur as early as 1907:

U.S. City Directories, 1821-1989 (Beta) about Glen O Mosser
Name:        Glen O Mosser
Residence Year: 1907
Residence Place: Decatur, Illinois

--Glen O Mosser, res w s of Maffit 7 s of Riverside av.
--Earl E Mosser, driver Decatur Ice Co, res w s Maffit 7 s of Riverside av
--James W Mosser, driver Decatur Ico Co, res w s of Maffit & s of Riverside av.

So, they may have all been brothers. And, in fact, this is probably the Mosser family in 1900:
