Juana de Arcos Babun was a member of the Cuban Babun family. Immigrants from Palestine in the early 1900s, they became a prominent family of businessmen in Cuba. Teofilo Babun Sr. owned a logging business near Santiago, Cuba, and became an early financier of the Cuban Revolution. Later, he was declared a traitor by Fidel Castro due to his wealth, and was forced to flee to Miami with his sons.
