Ruth Faye Atkins Mundy

EDMOND —     Ruth Faye Atkins Mundy, 86, was born August 22 1927, at home in Sulphur, Okla., one of four daughters of Ruth Faye and Garvin Atkins, and was raised in Oklahoma oil towns during the Great Depression.  She died at her home March 13 2014 in Jacksonville, Fla.

    Ruth lived in Long Beach, Calif., where she met and married her true love, our father Walter “Johnney” Mundy in 1946. He passed away in 2011. She raised her family in California, Texas and Maryland.

    She was a lifelong member of the First Christian Church in every community she lived. She belonged to many organizations including the Red Cross, the Welcome Wagon, the Women’s Club and the Rainbow Girls.

    Ruth visited 48 of the United States, and 16 countries around the world, but she was proud of her Oklahoma heritage and never forgot her roots. She lived for many years in Edmond before relocating to Florida in 2010 to be close to family. She resided at Cypress Village in a lovely independent living cottage.

    She is survived by her three sons and three grandchildren, and by her sister Mozelle Houser of Oklahoma City. She had many nieces and nephews whom she dearly loved and dozens of lifelong friends dating back to childhood.

    Two sisters predeceased her, Maureen Atkins Williamson and May Beth Atkins Newcomb.

    Services are Thursday, March 27, 2014 at Egret Hall, Cypress Village in Jacksonville. Ruth came to admire and support the Cypress Village Employee Scholarship Fund. Contributions in her name and memory would be appreciated: CV Employee Scholarship Fund, 4600 Middleton Park Circle, Jacksonville FL 32224.
