Ethel Bray Lundy

Ethel Bray Lundy, a former teacher, DFACS caseworker and lifelong church worker, died June 3, 2014, at Boswell Parker Health and Rehabilitation in Greensboro.  She was 95.

She was born October 24, 1918, to the late William Thomas Bray and Vera Studdard Bray near Greensboro, Ga.  All of her life was spent in Greene County with the exception of five years at Berry College in Rome, where she received a Bachelor of Science Degree in Home Economics, two years in Appling, Ga., working for the FSA and one year teaching home economics at Coosa High School in Rome.

After working as a homemaker for many years, Mrs. Lundy joined the Greene County Department of Family and Childrens’ Services, from which she retired in 1981.  She was active in Wesley Chapel Wesleyan Church all of her married life of 51 years to Edwin L. Lundy.  She was a Sunday school teacher for many years, the clerk for 40 years, treasurer for eight years and communion steward for 33 years. She was active in the Women’s Missionary Society and served as treasurer of North Georgia’s WHFM for several years.

Mrs. Lundy moved to Willow Run assisted living facility in Greensboro in 2004, eight years after the death of her husband. Thanks to faithful friends, Stephen and Loretta Need, she was able to attend her beloved church until last year when her health declined. She set a Wesley Chapel record of active membership, starting in 1929 and continuing until her death.

Mrs. Lundy always was involved in civic and community affairs.  She was a Pink Lady for Boswell Hospital for 20 years, and a member of the local AARP chapter and the Greene County Historical Society.   She assisted her husband, Edwin Lundy, at sing-a-longs at Boswell Parker and Greene Point Nursing Homes.  She was known as the “Ole Fashion Tea Cake Maker.”  She made and served them at both nursing homes.

She loved people and enjoyed living at Willow Run, where she had many friends.  Carolyn Gentry and Mrs. Lundy were responsible for starting the Willow Run Bible Study that Rev. Ira McKeever so faithfully taught starting in August 2004 at the invitation of the late Margaret Charles.  She also enjoyed the Willow Run sing-a-longs, when Carol Walker came every Thursday to play the piano.

She is survived by her sons, David Edwin Lundy (Jayne) of Stockbridge, Ga., and Gerald “Gerry” William Lundy (Mary) of Fort Smith, Ark.; two grandchildren, Jessica Lauren Lundy and Natalie Paige Peterson (Colin); great-granddaughter Evie Peterson; and a number of other relatives and many friends.  In addition to her husband, Edwin Lundy, she was preceded in death by her sisters, Anne Lamb, Mary Alligood and Elizabeth Duckworth.

Funeral Services will be held, Saturday, June 7, 2014 at 3 p.m. at Wesley Chapel Wesleyan Church, 2830 Highway 15 South, Greensboro, with Rev. Tim Tabler officiating.  Interment will follow in the church cemetery.  The family will receive friends Friday night from 7-9 p.m. at McCommons Funeral Home.  Serving as pallbearers are Dale Lamb, Gary Lamb, Gene Lundy, Larry Lundy, Lee Moore, Bill Moore, Tommy Cummings and Colin Peterson.  In lieu of flowers, the family requests that any memorials be made to Wesley Chapel Wesleyan Church, 2830 Highway 15 South, Greensboro, GA 30642.  McCommons Funeral Home, 109 W.

David - I am sorry to hear of your loss. Certainly your mom had a great run, as did my mother who passed recently at 98. It's still tough to lose a parent, no matter what age. Please know that you and yours are in my thoughts and prayers. Peace, Nat

Mrs. Ethel was one of the sweetest ladies in the world. I am just hearing of her passing and I wanted to say how sorry I am for your loss. She had a gentle smile and warm manner. She and Mr. Edwin were a special couple.
