LYNCHBURG, Va. — Mary Harvey McClung Baldwin died on Nov. 6, 2012, at Westminster Canterbury in Lynchburg.
A native Virginian, Mrs. Baldwin was born in Buckingham County at her home, Ivy Bend, on the Willis River to Mary Friend Baldwin Harvey and Caleb Cushing Harvey on Nov. 5, 1918.
The second of four children, she was predeceased by her parents; sisters, Kathryn H. Newman and Carolyn H. Jones; and by her brother, Caleb C. Harvey Jr.
Mrs. Baldwin attended Westhampton College and graduated from Longwood College in 1939. She taught school in Buckingham County and Pocahontas. In 1940, she married James T. McClung of Bluefield, W.Va., and soon thereafter moved to Washington, D.C., where her husband served in the Navy at the Pentagon.
Following World War II, Mary and Tate ultimately settled in Norton, where Mary was very active with church work, raising children, and teaching school. Mary was a person of deep and abiding faith. Her quick wit and charming personality endeared her to many. She loved to play golf and bridge. She was the coach of the golf team at John I. Burton High School for a number of years and she also won the Women's Club Championship in golf at the Lonesome Pine Country Club. Tate McClung died in April 1973.
In 1976, Mary married Thomas Kyle Baldwin of Farmville. Mary and Kyle lived in Farmville until 1980, at which time they retired to St. Simon's Island, Ga., where they spent the ensuing 25 years enjoying golf, new friends, and travel.
In 2002, Mary and Kyle moved into Westminster Canterbury in Lynchburg. They were well received there by an attentive staff and many new friends from the Lynchburg area, who treated them with warmth and affection. Kyle died in July of 2009.
