Rowena "Connie" Lund of Oxford, Georgia, passed away Monday, March 16, 2020, at the age of 93. Mrs. Lund was a native of Hopewell, Virginia, and after marriage, she and her husband put down roots in first Danville and then Richmond, Virginia. After moving to Oxford, she became a faithful member of Covington First United Methodist Church.
Mrs. Lund was a true Southern lady with a sassy sense of humor and a twinkle in her eye. She was the life of the party with a smile that lit up the room. Mrs. Lund was a second mother to many, and she loved her family and friends deeply.
She was preceded in death by her husband of 56 years, George J. Lund; parents, Charles and Myrtie Connelly; sisters, Jewell Gammon, Dorcas Simmons, Elva Stephenson, Melva Moyer; brothers, Tilman Connelly, Charles Connelly.
Survivors include her daughters, Patrice Lund Sumrell and husband, Don, Frances Lund Redick and husband, Craig; grandchildren, Clay Sumrell, Eric Sumrell and wife, Sara; great-grandchildren, Madison Sumrell, Mackenzie Sumrell; brother and sister-in-law, Clifton and Helen Connelly; as well as numerous beloved nieces and nephews.
A Memorial Service for Mrs. Lund will be scheduled later due to current events. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the general budget of Covington First United Methodist Church, 1113 Conyers Street SW, Covington, GA 30014.
