Text size

Juanita Lee Graves Cannon born Dec. 13, 1930, passed away peacefully in her home in Edmond, Okla., on Dec. 29, 2017, surrounded by her family.
Juanita lived a colorfully beautiful 87 years on this earth. She enjoyed romance novels, painting beautiful landscapes, creating handmade porcelain dolls, and doing any craft she could get her hands on. She loved Braums ice cream, Little Caesars pizza, and ordering all things from QVC, and she never went a day without her permed hair and perfect red lipstick.
She retired from AT&T after 35 years of devoted service. She has most definitely left this earth ever so more beautiful than when she found it.
She is preceded in death by her former husband, Harold Dean Cannon, mother and father, Alma and Lee Graves, sister Goldie Gist, brother, Johnny Graves, daughter Laura Watson, and granddaughter Sabre West.
She is survived by her sister Alice and husband John Braid, of Woodstock, Ga.; daughters, Deanne Cannon Lawless, of Anacoco, La., Jeanette and husband Bill Penhall, and Janice Sims, both of Edmond; grandchildren, Shay and wife Jennifer Harland, Mary Ian and husband Terry McDonald, Ashley Asa and husband Klay Harrison, Caleb Chance and wife Lyndsey West, Hannah Lawless, Jessica and husband Jeff Ramsdell, Lesley Penhall, Nash Sims, Austin and wife Nicole Sims; 19 incredible great-grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews.
Inurnment will be at Silver Creek Cemetery in Kurthwood, La.
