Juanita Grace Lundine, 93, Humboldt, passed away peacefully at her home on today, Aug. 3, 2017. She was born on Sept. 20, 1923, the oldest of six children to Bertie Wallace and Goldie Florence (Creason) Burton in Iola.
Juanita was a born caregiver. She was the best big sister to her siblings, wife to her husband, mom to her son, grandparent to her lucky grandkids, babysitter, friend, and teacher to many. She married John Andrew Lundine in Iola, Kansas, on Sept. 18, 1950, and enjoyed nearly 48 years together before he preceded her in death on July 29, 1998.
She spent many years babysitting children in her home and caring for her family. Some of her favorite pastimes were attending any activity her son and grandkids were involved in, gardening, baking the best cookies, reading her Bible, cooking anything her grandkids requested, attending church, and spoiling her family every chance she got. She was a member of Humboldt First Baptist Church, where she actively participated in many clubs and taught Sunday School to hundreds of kids for more than 50 years. Juanita was a permanent fixture in the sporting community, attending any and all games, especially football, softball, baseball, and anything else her kids were involved in. She was an angel on earth and will be missed by many.
Juanita is survived by her son, John Eugene “Crab” (Peggy) Lundine, Humboldt; granchildren, Becky (Kyley) Fankhauser, Overland Park, Sarah Aikins, Chanute, Jesse (Andrew) Johns, Lansing, and Arden Koehn, Garden City; 13 great-grandchildren and three great-great-grandchildren; a sister, Eva Wagner, LaHarpe; and numerous nieces and nephews.
