Obituary for Joni Marie Lunde

Joni Marie Lunde, of Waldron, Missouri, and formerly of Orrick, Missouri, unexpectantly passed away in her home in Waldron on Monday, February 3, 2020.

Joni had a compassionate heart with a gypsy soul, and blessed our lives for 37 years, 2 months, and 11 days.

It was on November 23, 1982, Kansas City, Missouri, that the Lord blessed the home of Jon Roy and Mary Lee (Barlow) Lunde the gift of a precious daughter, naming her after her father.
Joni attended school in Orrick, Missouri, and graduating with a satellite school in liberty Class of 2000. Joni furthered her education and attended the Dental College in Provo, Utah, studying to become a Dental Assistant.

Joni lived as a free spirit, and she loved everyone equally. She would never pass judgment and frowned at those that did. She adorned a warm and friendly smile that was infectious to those around her. Joni would have made an excellent professional counselor because she never failed to know the precise words to use when someone needed help. If you were having a bad day, you could call Joni, and she would put her needs or problems to the side to counsel you. Joni belonged to an era of the past, having a keen for Marilyn Monroe and Lucille Ball. She collected their memorabilia and displayed classic framed posters of Marilyn Monroe in her home. She enjoyed watching old B&W classic movies and re-runs of I Love Lucy. The rain had a way of rejuvenating her, and if a thunderstorm were roaring in the distance, she would wait with anticipation for its powerful arrival. She had a weakness for Dr. Pepper and absolutely loved the color yellow. She looked forward to visiting her friends in Utah and went there as often as she could. Joni loved to explore and travel to places like Disneyworld, Colorado, or going on a cruise to Belize, as she craved that sense of freedom. She had a companion Maltese, named Deja, that she loved dearly. She had a quirky sense of humor, and she would always dress her little nephews in girls’ clothing; sometimes, it was a best friend from Kindergarten that humored her by donning a dress. Joni was a true Mormon girl and remaining faithful and believing in the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Everyone loved Joni, and she will be missed greatly, but her spirit carries on with a new and painless body.

Joni is survived by her parents, Jon and Mary Lunde of Orrick, Missouri; a brother, Jerry Wayne Johnson; three sisters, Erica Loretta Johnson, Nellie Ann Smith, and Mary Lee Smith; her beloved nieces and nephews, Josh, Christa, Carli, Mason, Brittany, Ricky, Jacob, and Carson.

She was preceded in death by her maternal and paternal grandparents.
