Jaunita Lois (Johnson) Kerr, age 83, went home to be with her Lord after her bout with cancer on June 8, 2018 at her home in Sterling, Oklahoma. She was born at home in Sterling, OK to George (Man) and Lorena Johnson. She was born on December 27, 1934 and was the third of five children. Jaunita grew up in Sterling until she moved to Shawnee, OK to attend Oklahoma Baptist University. She then quit college to marry John Kerr on October 7, 1953. Out of their marriage they had 2 sons and 4 daughters. They would have celebrated 65 years of marriage this year. She will be greatly missed. Our loss is Heaven’s gain. The family would like to thank Dr. Adkins, Faith Hospice, and Visiting Angels for helping take such special care of Jaunita: wife, mother, grandma, great grandma, sister, and friend.

She is survived by her husband, John Carlton Kerr, of the home; her children: Archie Kerr and his wife Kellean, of Sterling, Anita (Kerr) Yates and her husband Gary, of Willard, MO, Johnnie Carla Ferguson, of Chickasha, Cora Carlisle, of Sterling, and Jim Kerr, of Oklahoma City; 1 brother, Elmer Johnson, of Tuttle; 3 sisters: Ruby Williams, of Lawton, Nyla Johnson, of Woodward, and Ida Jo Adamson, of Sterling; 13 grandchildren; 11 great grandchildren; and a host of other family members and friends.
