EXPRESSING THE PROFOUND SORROW OF THE MEMBERS OF THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF THE STATE OF SOUTH CAROLINA TO THE FAMILY AND MANY FRIENDS OF THE LATE MRS. ELEANOR METTS MUNDY OF GREENWOOD COUNTY, PUBLISHER AND BOARD CHAIRMAN OF THE INDEX-JOURNAL.
Whereas, the members of the General Assembly are deeply saddened to learn of the death of Mrs. Eleanor Metts Mundy, on Saturday, May 9, 1998, at the age of eighty-one; and
Whereas, Eleanor Metts Mundy was born in Greenwood County and was the daughter of the late Joseph and Nettie Pinson Metts; and
Whereas, she was educated in the Greenwood County Public Schools and was a graduate of Newberry College; and
Whereas, she was preceded in death by her husband, R. Frank Mundy, the Publisher of the Index-Journal who died in 1982, and the mother of Judith M. (Judi) Burns, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Index-Journal; and
Whereas, survivors in addition to Judi (Mrs. James C. Burns III), include three granddaughters, Alison Burns and St. Claire Burns, both of Greenwood, and Mundy Burns of Columbia; and a great-grandchild, Chandler Burns of Greenwood; and
Whereas, this sweet and beautiful woman was a devoted member of First Baptist Church and the Benson Sunday School Class. She was also a member of the Azalea Garden Club, the McKissick Study Club, and formerly served on the Lander University Board of Visitors and the Erskine Board of Counselors; and
Whereas, it can be said truthfully that the world, and especially Greenwood, is a much better place today for the life of Mrs. Eleanor Metts Mundy, and Greenwood has lost a truly outstanding citizen and a lady whose presence will be missed greatly; and
Whereas, Mrs. Mundy will long be remembered by her friends and acquaintances as a gracious and resilient lady; and
Whereas, we want the members of her family and many friends to know that they are uppermost in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time; and
Whereas, the members of the General Assembly express appreciation for Mrs. Eleanor Metts Mundy's life and the many contributions she gave to Greenwood County and the Palmetto State. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring:
That the members of the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina, by this resolution, express their profound sorrow to the family and many friends of the late Mrs. Eleanor Metts Mundy of Greenwood County, Publisher and Board Chairman of the Index-Journal.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to her daughter, Mrs. James C. (Judi) Burns III.
