JUANITA MAE LOWRANCE, daughter of Orval and Goldie Fairchild Sloan, was born August 8, 1939, in Lebanon, Missouri and departed this life May 19, 2013, also in Lebanon, Missouri, at the age of seventy-three years.
Juanita was the definition of devoted mother. She took great pride in providing a warm and welcoming environment for her children and grandchildren. Her house was always full of love, laughter, and family.
Although being a mother to seven children kept her quite busy through the years, she also enjoyed a variety of hobbies. The activity that consumed most of her time was genealogy, especially computer games such as “find a grave.” She also loved to scrapbook and go on weekend outings with her daughter and sister to Goodwill Thrift Stores to hunt bargains. However, nothing compared to the laughter shared and memories made with her family. They were most important to her.
Juanita leaves to celebrate her memory, six sons, Chris Lowrance and his wife Brenda of Stoutland, MO, Micah Lowrance and his fiancé Rhonda Monnahan, Brad Lowrance and his wife Janett, Mark Lowrance and his wife Becky, and Eugene “Beaver” Trudgeon, all of Lebanon, MO, and Matt Lowrance and his wife Falon of Conway, MO; one daughter, Sherri Marcum and her husband Danny, also of Lebanon, MO; one sister, Barbara Darst and her husband Russell of Lebanon, MO; seventeen grandchildren, Scott, Rick, Dusty, Misty, Christy, Christopher, Stephen, B.J., Josh, Tiffany, Marissa, Ryder, Jo Jo, Tristan, Joe, Charlie, and Izzy; twenty-six great-grandchildren; many nieces and nephews; other relatives and many friends.
She was preceded in death by her parents; two brothers, Bob Sloan and Ralph Jr., in infancy; one niece, Rhonda Boyd; and one daughter-in-law, Vicki Lowrance.
Juanita was the type of person you could meet once and remember forever. She had an unmatched personality and ability to make other laugh. She loved unconditionally and knew the importance of
family. Those who had the pleasure of knowing her will forever be changed.
