Juanetia Fay Campbell

June 17, 1923 — June 1, 2022

Juanetia Campbell was born in Rocky Ford, Colorado, on June 17, 1923 to Victor E. and Iva Angelita (Lican) Keller.  The household was quite lively with her four brothers and two sisters.

Growing up, Juanetia experienced the Dust Bowl Days, the Dirty 30’s, and the Great Depression.  To survive the terrific dust storms, Juanetia’s mother would place wet bed sheets over the windows to aid in keeping the dust out.

She completed the 11th grade, then married her best friend, Ira B. Campbell, in June 1940.  They had two sons, Ira Dale and Larry.  When the boys were just 2 and 3 years old, their dad was inducted into the Army and spent a year overseas.

During their early years of marriage and the end of the Dust Bowl Days, Ira and Juanetia lived in a dugout in Beaver County.  There was no running water and an out house was used for the bathroom.

Juanetia and Ira lived in Beaver where she was a Lab Tech at the Beaver Hospital for 2 years.  She also worked as a circulating nurse in surgery at Buffalo for 1 year.

After moving to Alva, Juanetia was a cook at the schools for 25 years.  Making bread and cinnamon rolls was her specialty.

She was baptized in the Bible Baptist Church in Alva and was a very faithful worker in the Church.  She loved to sew, cook, and crochet.  Being a part of the Golden Girls was very fun and enjoyable for her.  Juanetia enjoyed her family: sons, daughters-in-law, 5 grandchildren, 14 great grand children, and 5 great, great grandchildren.

When Juanetia turned 90, she made the move to Bartlesville with her son, Ira Dale, and his wife, Kay.  She was active in Bartlesville First Church until Covid hit…then she stayed away from public places.

She lived a full life.  Neighbors loved her home-made cinnamon rolls and bread.  Each Christmas, she made 1200 pieces of hand dipped candies for the grand kids, and great grand kids.  She loved playing Mexican Dominoes at Christmas time with the family.

Juanetia passed on June 1, 2022 in Tulsa, Oklahoma just 16 days before her 99th birthday.

Juanetia lived a very Christian life.  She will be missed by all who knew her.
