Obituary for Julia M Lunsford

Julia Margaret Basore Lunsford, 93 years of age, was born on November 20, 1923 to George and Wilma Basore in Fayetteville, Arkansas. Julia is a descendant of eight passengers who came to America on the Mayflower, of which, four signed the Mayflower Compact.

Julia's family moved to Oklahoma City, where she graduated from Classen High School. Julia then went on to the University of Arkansas for one year. World War II brought Julia back to Oklahoma City where she worked as a secretary in the Red Cross at Will Rogers Airport. As the war came to a close, she married and bore two children who lived only a few days. Julia's father was one of the founders of Zero Mountain Cold Storage in Johnson, Arkansas. Julia suffered a tragedy in 1971, where she lost her husband, father, mother, and brother.

Julia then worked as an executive security for Fife Corporation when she met Tommy Lunsford of Wheatland, Oklahoma. In 1979, Julia married Tommy and moved to live with him next door to his business, Dawson's Feed Company. Julia was a tremendous support of her husband in all his endeavors as a business owner. Julia is a breast cancer survivor of over 20 years. Julia and Tommy's devotion for each other has carried them through almost four decades of love and true friendship.

Julia is survived by her husband, Tommy of Wheatland, Oklahoma, 3 daughters: Terri Cobb of Bethany, Oklahoma, Tommi Jo (Tinka) and husband Don Willard of Springdale, Arkansas, Tobbi and husband, Kevin Dixon, of Cedar Rapids, Iowa and one son, James Robert Lunsford of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, 18 grandchildren and 16 great grandchildren.

A graveside service will be held at Pleasant Valley Cementary in Wheatland, Oklahoma on Tuesday, October 10, 2017 at 2:00 pm. Family, friends and public are welcome.
