Juanita King, a longtime Cushing resident who has lived in Stillwater for the past 16 years, passed peacefully in her sleep at home Monday, July 13, 2020. She was 94 years old. At Juanita’s request there will be no public funeral services. Her family will gather privately for graveside services at Braman Cemetery in Braman, Oklahoma. Arrangements are under the direction of Strode Funeral Home and Cremation in Stillwater.

Juanita was born December 1, 1925 in Ponca City, Oklahoma to Roy E. and Edna M. (Minor) Temple. She was raised in and around Ponca City and Kildare, Oklahoma and attended elementary school in Ponca City. She attended High School in Blackwell, Oklahoma where she lived with her sister Rosemary. After high school Juanita worked at Milligan’s Drug Store.

On August 17, 1946 she was united in marriage to Woodrow C. King. After their marriage, they moved to Blackwell where she worked at Pollyanna Dress Shop for 2 years until she and Woodrow opened and ran a children’s clothing store known as The Prince and Princess Shop. After becoming Christians they felt called to the mission field to share God‘s gospel. They were missionaries in Jamaica from the late 1950’s until they returned to the United States in the late 1960’s. They settled in Cushing, Oklahoma where they owned and operated the Dairy Queen there for 15 years until they sold it to become full-time cattle ranchers. In 2004 they sold their beloved ranch and moved to Stillwater.

Juanita was a devoted wife, daughter, mother, grandmother, aunt, sister and friend to many. She was a gifted poet and a published author, and was famous among friends and family for her wonderful homemade cards. She had a strong faith and loved her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. She loved to share her testimony with everyone and always put her faith first in all she did. For her entire Christian life she read her bible completely from beginning to end every year. She was a longtime member of the First Assembly of God Church in Cushing. She loved teaching Sunday School and her students, and was a dedicated fundraiser for Women’s Ministries. She will be dearly missed by all who knew her.

Juanita was preceded in death by her husband of 68 1/2 years Woodrow C. King; her parents; two brothers, George Temple and Eddie Temple; and two sisters, Opal Wright and Willa Allen.

She is survived by her three daughters and their husbands: Michal Lynn and Keith Chasteen of Duncan, Shannon and Dr. Arthur Hagan of Stillwater, and Shelly and Steve Wood of Stillwater; 9 grandchildren; 22 great-grandchildren; 10 great-great-grandchildren; her sister Rosemary Rutter of Ponca City, Oklahoma and many, many nieces and nephews that she loved dearly. She is also survived by her extended family Curdel and Cecil Mooreland of Cushing and their two daughters and four granddaughters, and Beverly and Rev. Randy Dyer of Catoosa and their three daughters and six grandchildren.

The family would like to give a special and sincere thank-you to her grandson Ren Hagan, who moved in and cared for his grandmother for the past 5 1/2 years, keeping his promise to his grandfather. Your compassionate and loving dedication was extraordinary.
