Lugene K. “Sunny” Street

Lugene K. “Sunny” Street was born on August 24, 1951 and passed away on Thursday, December 7, 2017 at home after a long fought battle against cancer.

She was born in Kansas City, Missouri to Howard and Yvonne (Wiard) Howe. She attended Raytown High School and Truman High School and later obtained her GED. She met the love of her life Daniel Street in 1970 and they were married October 29, 1971. Sunny worked for over 30 years in the insurance business. The majority of her career was as an agent for Farmers Insurance. She loved her insureds like family and truly enjoyed what she did. She spent her free time attending her beloved grandsons’ activities, tending her flowers, doing paint by numbers and just hanging out with her Dan.

She was preceded in death by her parents; parents-in-law, Donald and Ramona Street; sisters, Terry Lecroy and Ramona Chamberlain; and brother-in-law, Ted Street.

She is survived by her loving husband of 46 years; daughter, Rebecca (Troy) Brooks; sons, Paul (Cissi) Robinson and Paul Street; grandsons, Nolan and Holden Brooks; brother, Richard (Kathy) Howe; brothers-in-law, Gary (Dedra) Street, Richard (Jill) Street and Don Lecroy; nieces, Katie, Nicole, Emmi, Mindi, Geni, Erin and Robin; nephews, Jesse, Dustin, Adam, Neil, Eric, Jason, Joe, Jeff and Trey; and numerous other family members that were of great importance to her.

She also leaves behind her best friend of 40 years, Donna Kelley.

Sunny touched so many people’s lives and never met a stranger. She loved her family fiercely and we will miss her dearly. The sun will shine a little less bright now that our Sunshine has gained her wings.

Memorial services will be held Saturday, January 13, 2018 at 1:30 pm at Spring Valley Baptist Church in Raytown, Missouri.

Per Sunny’s request memorial contributions are suggested to Wayside Waifs or Great Plains SPCA.

    Sunny was a wonderful compassionate and loving woman and will be missed. Her legacy will live on through the many memories of times spent with her family. She was always held the role of “caregiver” for her family members in their times of need, and now will resume that role from a higher place and with Angel wings.

    Sunny- How fortunate I am to have met you. You and I worked together for just a few short months but in the time of working with you, I learned so much and laughed so much! You were a beautiful lady and will forever be in my heart! I will truly miss you! Thanks for taking me under your wings and now you truly have your wings! Rest in paradise

    Sweetest person I’ll ever know. She always made me feel welcomed and loved. They truly couldn’t have found a better nickname for her than ‘Sunshine’, she was definitely a bright and warm personality. In those last days, when you’d ask her if she was ready to see Jesus, she always nodded with an emphatic “yes!” She took much comfort in the arms of God her last year, along with her beloved family and friends, and that is where she found her strength and her peace through her battle. If I were to find one word for Sunny Street it would be ‘spunk’! Thankful to have the promise of seeing her once again in our forever home of Heaven!

    When we had insurance through Farmer’s (Billy Knabe), Sunny was always a kind and trusting voice on the other line. She was the epitome of customer service, but so much more than that. Wishing her loved ones peace and God’s grace during their time of loss.

    Dave and I had no clue our Beloved and Most Favorite Insurance Advisor would be leaving us so soon. We send love and prayers for comfort to the family and Thanking our Lord for being two of the most fortunate to receive her warmth, care and outstanding personal service. Sunny will be greatly missed
