Juanita G. (Oliver) Lindley was born May 5, 1927, in Walters, Oklahoma to Ellis and Lessie Oliver, the sixth
of eight children. She passed away on July 6, 2022, in Hydro, Oklahoma at the age of 95.
She was the daughter of a country preacher and they moved to the Lookeba area where she attended
schools and met the love of her life, Dee Lindley. They were married August 11, 1942, and were married
60 years. To this union were born three children, Zona Gale, Gary Dee and Tana Renea. They made
their home on a farm near Lookeba, Oklahoma for 48 years farming peanuts, potatoes, cotton and
raising cattle. They moved to Hinton in 1990 and almost retired. Juanita had many business ventures over
the years; Red Rock Grocery, working at Bubba’s, Hinton Flowers and Gifts, Repeat Boutique, hosted and
cashiered at Zona’s Restaurant, worked at Cindy’s Company Coming and Vintage Alley, no matter what
business she was at, it was the people she enjoyed; she loved people. Juanita never met a stranger.
Juanita was a very patriotic woman, she and Dee loved to travel to Dee’s Army reunions every year. She
was instrumental in reviving the American Legion Women’s Auxiliary Gilbert Fossett Post #230 where
she proudly served for over twenty years.
She was a collector of many things, probably her largest collection was cookie jars, she had over 300.
However, her proudest collection was her family. She enjoyed big family dinners on Sunday and loved
the holiday gatherings.
The family would like to thank everyone at Maple Lawn Manor in Hydro and the Russell Murray Hospice
for their love and care for Juanita.
