BUNDY, Betty
BUNDY, Betty Betty Yorkey Bundy, age 93, passed peacefully Sat. evening March 4, 2017, from metastatic melanoma cancer, with her loving children present. She had a wonderful long life. Childhood was growing up in a happy family of 10 in the beautiful Adirondack Mountains of Upstate New York. There she met and married the Methodist Pastors son, Russell Winfield Bundy, who was totally in love with her. Together they enjoyed all lifes blessings in their 67 year marriage, until Russell passed, age 88 in 2014. They had 3 children; son: Russell Scott, born Burtonwood Air Force Base, England; daughters: Marcia born in New York, Denise born in California. The family of 5 adored each other and had much fun together. Summer vacation was camping in Yosemite National Park in the times of tents and firefalls. Once the children had been raised properly and left the nest, Russ and Betty moved to Palmdale, Calif., population then 10,000 to be near the Lockheed plant. They joined the Palmdale United Methodist Church and were blessed with superb Pastors and congregation. Betty continued her love of fabrics and sewing and learned to quilt. She became a quilt master and quilted until the end of her life. Blessings of bloodline flowed with grandchildren: Danielle, Vanessa, and Dion; and great-grandchildren: Olivia and Stella. When it came time for Betty to go from this life to the next, she was ready. In some of her last words she said, "Heaven is different" and she "does not want us to be sad." Memorial service upcoming at P.U.M.C.
