Marguerite was born October 24, 1929 in Harrison County to Earl Lumpkin and Myrtle Jones Lumpkin. She passed from this life December 7, 2021 in Lindale, TX.
Marguerite married Sam Lundy September 6, 1946 in Bossier City, LA. She retired from Safeway food Store in 1978 when the company sold. After her husband Sam passed away, Mrs. Lundy returned to the workforce as a library aide for Harleton School under the STEP program for 9 years and another 10 years through direct employment by the school. She retired at the age of 86 due to a decline in her health. She loved her job as a library aide and treasured each and every child she encountered. She would tell the children that “if I had a big house and a lot of money, I would take each one of you home with me. I never wanted to cut the little fellows short on love, patience, and understanding.”
Marguerite is survived by her children, Judy and Buddy Denny of Marshall, Kathy and Leslie Johnson of Jefferson, Sam and Barbara Lundy of Lindale, Don and Tammy Lundy of Hallsville, and Larry Boaze, son in law of Marshall; her grandchildren, Richard and Shannon Parrott of Marshall, Mike Parrott of Elysian Fields, Brandi and Justin Clark of Longview, Alison and Michael Roberts of Longview, Melissa and Chance Green of Lakeside, AZ., Josh and Yolanda Lundy of Jefferson, and Whitney Johnson of Mansfield, 14 Great Grandchildren, Six Great Great Grandchildren, 3 nieces, Pat Curry of Roundrock, Becky Lindstey of Fort Worth, and Lynda Waits of Marshall. She was preceded in death by her husband, Sam Lundy; her daughter, Candy Boaze; granddaughter Sharon Parrott; grandson Jeremy Lundy; and nephew Ronnie Lundy.
In lieu of flowers, Mrs. Lundy requested that memorials be made in her memory to the Harleton Angel Tree, Harleton School Library, or St. Jude Hospital.
