HIGHLY RESPECTED SCOTIA WOMAN CALLED BY DEATH
MRS. MARY BUNDY PASSES AWAY IN GRAND ISLAND SUNDAY
The death of Mrs. Bundy has brought sorrow to many hearts, as she was a woman whom to know was to love. Living in Scotia so many years, she endeared herself to all with whom she became acquainted, and her sterling character commanded the respect of all.
Her death, after such a short illness, was unexpected by the majority of her friends, as they could not realize the seriousness of her illness. We believe we can truthfully say that not a person in Scotia had so many friends, who deeply grieve over her loss, and the sympathy of all go out to the sons and their families and the sisters and brothers who are left.
Her going leaves a vacant place that can never be filled, and she will always be held in loving remembrance.
Mary A. Chitty was born in Carrol County, near Shannon, Illinois, February 13, 1858.
She was united in marriage to Obadiah B. Bundy, at Shannon, Ill., December 31, 1876. To this union two children were born, Walter W. now residing at Grand Island, and Frank L., of Scotia.
Mr. and Mrs. Bundy came to Nebraska in the spring of 1879, locating on a homestead near Cozad. In 1884 they moved to Scotia, residing here ever since with the exception of two years residence at North Platte.
When they first moved to Scotia, Mr. Bundy was an employee of the Union Pacific Railroad, and rode into Scotia on the first train coming into town.
Mrs. Bundy was baptized in the Presbyterian church in childhood and was a member of the Scotia Presbyterian church at the time it disbanded. She was also a member of the Modern Brotherhood Eastern Star and Royal Neighbor Lodges, and was recorded of the Royal Lodge.
Mrs. Bundy has led a very active life, enjoying good health until a few weeks ago. She was taken to the St. Francis Hospital at Grand Island, where on Sunday night, Sept. 5, she departed this life, having attained the age of 68 years, 6 mo., and 25 days. Her husband had preceded her in death, having answered the summons at the St. Joseph Hospital in Omaha, on July 15, 1919.
She leaves to mourn her departure, her children, Mr. and Mrs. Walter Bundy and Mr. and Mrs. Frank Bundy, two sisters- Mrs. Saphronia Black, of Racine, Wis. and Mrs. Julia Baum, of Shannon, Ill., two brothers- George Chitty of Emporia, Kan. and Wm. Chitty of DeKalb, Ill., three half-sisters and two half-brothers and four grandchildren- Boyd, Wilber and Beatrice, children of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Bundy, and Fae, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Bundy, besides hosts of friends.
