Caroline Griffith Lundy of Eatonton passed away November 30th. She was born to the late Powell Griffith and Inez Gregory Griffith. She was a member of Eatonton Methodist Church.
Although her parents were deeply rooted in Eatonton, she was born in Norfolk, Virginia where her father was stationed in the navy. They were soon after sent to the base in San Diego, California. As a surgeon during WWII on the battleship New Mexico, he survived kamikaze attacks in the Pacific theatre, a fact that she was proud of to her last day. After the war she attended the exclusive Marlborough school for girls outside of Los Angeles.
After the sudden death of her father in 1949 the family returned to Eatonton. She graduated from Georgia College for women in Milledgeville with an education degree.
She taught school at both Gatewood and Putnam County during a long career. She was always happy to help former students in college who needed her advice on college level English.
Her cooking was legendary. She was well known for making the best cornbread in the world.
Her mind was perfect until the very end, and she certainly would still tell her kids what to do! As usual, the reply was " Yes ma'am."
She was preceded in death by her husband Billy Lundy, daughter Vivian Lundy Collis, as well as her parents and brother Powell Griffith.
She is survived by her sons Chip Walker (Tammy), John Walker, and daughter Vikki Drawdy (Tommy.) She is also survived by her six grandchildren and eleven great-grandchildren.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Eatonton First Methodist Church.
