Love Mrs. Strickland. She taught me in the 5th grade and was my favorite teacher. As I got older we became friends. Went on many trips with her with the church. She was a joy to be around. She was as beautiful inside as she was on the outside. Will me you Mrs. Strickland. I am sorry for your loss. Praying for the family

Mahlon and I have been spoiled rotten by our adopted "Mama "Juaneil. I'm sure we are just two out of hundreds that feel the same..I admired her as a friend, mentor, sister in the Lord, partner in funny shenanigans..she was so fun and loving and kind..we will never forget her..always love her..will look for her in Paradise. Praying for you sweet Strickland family..for many days ahead..

I've known Mrs Strick all my life and went to school with her children. She bought our little church every hardback red hymnbook in our church. The front of the book has her name in it, I will always think of her when we open them to sing or to play a hymn out of it. Thank you for your big, generous heart Mrs. Strick. I know you are experiencing all those old wonderful hymns now.

What sweet memories I have of Juaneil, I met her when she was just 16, she came to our little church in Winn parish to play for a revival. My Aunt Charlene came along to be with her. Well to make a looong story short, she met our handsome neighbor James Strickland and the rest is history. we have stayed in touch all these years . We will miss her so much, but she in her Heavenly home with her loved ones who have gone on before her. Loved her so much.

Mick became our ‘proxy’ grandma way back in 1996❤️ As neighbors on Tomahawk Dr, Stan & I frequently visited she & Mr. James for coffee, as James would let baby Jordan waggle his 3 fingered hand and gently laugh at Jordan. Mick was the person I called when Abby was coming laaaate Jan 20, 1998!!! She raced over to sit with Jordan as we went to the hospital. She was one of the 1st to hold lil Abby💗
Although we moved across the highway, we never lost touch. The Strickland’s - every one of them- are special people! Always a special place in our hearts.
I picture Mick & James drinkin coffee in grand rocking chairs at their mansion preparing to sing praise to their Father🙏

She was counselor at Arnett when I was in eighth grade. I went to her crying once and she began pulling one tissue after another in a comical fashion. She helped me that day and am sure that she was there for many others as well. I am grateful for the 89 years that the Lord gave her.
