Betty Jo Lundy



Betty Jo Crouse Lundy ran to the arms of Jesus on Monday, November 6, 2017 after a 24 year journey with Alzheimer’s.

Betty Jo was born August 20, 1930 to Norman Crouse and Lillie Mae Mullins Crouse. She grew up and attended school in Pound, Virginia. It was at school that she met her future husband, Rexford Henry Lundy. They were married December 27, 1946. After being married, Rex and Betty Jo each accepted the Lord as savior. That faith was to be the foundation for their lives, their marriage and the raising of their three children.

Betty Jo is survived by her children, Carol Powell of Bluemont, Rex K. Lundy (Gloria) of Spencer, Tenn. and Connie L. Brown (J. Gordon) of Fredericksburg; five grandchildren Heather Hendrix (Jeff) of Winchester, Tenn., Justin Lundy (Tiffany) of Ooltewah, Tenn., Brandon Powell of Bluemont, Lindsay Jo VanHoven (Bobby) of Rapidan and Seth Brown of Bowling Green; 11 great-grandchildren Grant, Trenton, Keeper, Madison, Brendan, Ethan, Kadynce, Blake, Shelby, Daniel and Sophia; sister Janis Powers of Pound; and a special sister-in-law Erma Lee Belcher of Grand Blanc, MI. Betty Jo was preceded in death by her husband of 60 years, Rexford Henry Lundy; son John Colin; grandson Nathan Powell; and brother John Argie Crouse.

While being a wife and mother, Betty Jo held various positions outside the home. Prior to her retirement in 1993 she was employed as a switchboard operator for NALC Health Benefit Plan in Ashburn.
