It is with great sadness that the family of Jacquetta Jean Lane Lunson announce her passing on
May 1, 2020 in Fayetteville, AR at the age of 66. She was born Aug 21, 1953 in Seminole, OK,
the second of five children born to J. Paul Lane II and Sara Dean Simmons Lane . Quetta is survived by her mother Sara Lane (McAlester, OK); husband Gary Lunson (Fort Smith, AR); daughter Cassady Craig Watkins, husband Chris and beloved grandchildren Layla, Brenner and Cohen (Farmington, AR); sisterJanan Lane, brothers J. Paul (III), Jerry, James and their spouses; several uncles, aunts,cousins, nephews and nieces; and lifelong family friend Carol Cappo. Jacquetta was preceded in death by her father J. Paul Lane II.
Jacquetta attended McAlester Public Schools and graduated in 1971. She attended Oklahoma
University, Northeastern State university and graduated with honors from the University of Life.
The blessing of her life came with the birth of Cassady Brooke, her miracle baby. Jacquetta
married Gary Lunson and they were blessed with 22 wonderful years together.
Jacquetta lived life to the fullest, with a huge heart and a gypsy soul. Her sense of adventure
and wanderlust were ever present, and provided her with several lifetimes worth of memories
and great stories. She poured her love of life into Cassady and her grandchildren. YaYa was
her grandchildren’s pied piper and the crazy fun aunt to her siblings’ children, always leading
them in search of unforgettable adventures. Quetta was a constant champion of the disadvantaged and all creatures large and small. She loved riding horses, fishing, boating, listening to live music
and last but not least, dancing, anytime and anywhere.

A private celebration of Jacquetta's life will be held on May 9, 2020 at Mildred B. Cooper Chapel in Bella Vista, AR and she will be interned at a later date in McAlester, OK. The family requests, in lieu of flowers,
that donations be made to the River Valley Food Bank in Fort Smith, Arkansas https://www.rvrfoodbank.org/donate/ or Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma. https://okfoodbank.org/donate/

I graduated with Jacquetta in 1971. I knew her as an intelligent and beautiful young woman with kindness to all.
