Service of Triumph for our beloved Charlotte E. Bundy Saturday, September 29, 1984, St. Matthew's United Methodist Church, 1665 Derousse Avenue, Delair, N.J. Rev. Charles W. Cannon, Pastor. Interment Sunset Memorial Park, Pennsauken, N.J. Pall Bearers (the nephews) Gerald Bundy, Warren Bundy, Shurman Cox, Sylvester Hunter, Oscar Miller, Gilbert Samuels. Flower Bearers -- the nieces. Funeral arrangements by Waples Funeral Home, 822-24 Kaighn Avenue, Camden, New Jersey.
Obituary: On May 21, 1914 in a town called Lewis, in the State of Delaware, you bestowed upon your children, the late Harvey and Elizabeth Wright, a blessing creating a beautiful daughter, named Charlotte. Through your goodness and mercy, you allowed your child to be nurtured in the Blackwood, New Jersey Public School System and the Community Church during her dependent years.
In the same caring way that you created Eve for Adam, you created Charlotte Wright for Joseph Bundy of Delair, New Jersey; and the two became one on November 6, 1932. In your love, being so bountiful, again you poured out your blessings to this union and enhanced it with two sons, Wayne and Bruce.
To provide for the family which you established, you whispered an idea to Joseph to open a community grocery store. Charlotte wearing the same contagious smile that she wore on her wedding day, beamed brightly as she obeyed her Master, working diligently by her husband’s side and caring for their offspring.
Joe, lovingly referred to by his wife and friends, was placed by you, God, as head of his household and grocery store; and he carried his title with pride and stature. Charlotte, your weaker vessel, was easier to maneuver in the Family Store. Townsfolk and Townsfolk’s children would leave the store with bags full of food, love, patience and understanding, along with extended ice cream cones and credit when “Miss Charlotte” was on duty. In serving others, God was served and the Bundy’s store was a reality for more than twenty-five years.
God has granted to each a gift; and to Charlotte, He gave the gift of service. Her life was dedicated to those she loved. “Selflessness” was the word that best characterized this “Special Lady.” Her family came first. Their well-being took precedence over her own. Never was she too tired or too busy to care for the needs of others.
But late in 1983, Charlotte’s health began to fail. The amount of time that she once spent doing for others, would be lessened with the passing of each new month. Then on September 24th, God sent an angel to Room 425 at the West Jersey Hospital in Camden to reclaim what was already His.
Rest on “Mother”, “Honey Bun”, “Mom-Mom”, “Aunt Charlotte” and “Charlotte.” You cared - You shared - You loved. Peacefully submitted, Wayne, Bruce, Barbara, Jacqui, Hallaua, Libby, Donna, your eight grandchildren, two great grandchildren, nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends

Joseph Bundy, Sr. 1938-1990
The Homegoing Service of Wayne Joseph Bundy, Sr. 1938-1990, St. Matthew's United Methodist Church, 1665 Derousse Ave., Delair, N.J. Sunday, December 9, 1990, 8 o’clock P.M.
(Died) March 30, 1938 4:35 A.M. Cooper Hospital, Camden, N.J.
Wayne Joseph Bundy, Sr., the eldest of two sons born to the late Joseph and Charlotte Bundy, was a quiet, easy going, family-oriented child. The love security and sense of well being that the family unit provided was the foundation of his existence. While most kids his age chose the fun and frolic of the world outside—He, happily ripped, romped and read at the playground he called home.
He was a unique person, with broad shoulders and a made up mind. The crowd did things their way and he did things his! His peers couldn’t (not to say they wouldn’t) pressure him and the tough guys couldn’t (most of the time) incite him to attack. That is, unless you pushed him to the edge!
Wayne received his early education in the Pennsauken Township School System. He then went on to graduate from Palmyra High School in Palmyra, N.J. He was a good student, with a mind bent on learning any and everything.
On October 20, 1958, the young man from Morrisville (Delair), would have to temporarily sever the family ties. For on this date he would relocate to Ft. Monmouth in Northern N.J. Here he served as Radar Repairman for the U.S. Army. Then came June 29, 1961. His day of jubilee! With honorable discharge in hand, he headed back to the green, green, grass of home.
“By the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread.” And Wayne knew this to be a reality. No longer sheltered by mother and dad and motivated by the needs of his own family, this mild mannered young man, began an aggressive campaign of the will. Salesman! Entrepreneur! Handyman! Gardner and Chef! These were but a few of the “Labours of Love” that he skillfully undertook. Whatever was necessary to provide for the needs of his loved ones, he did. The last of his employers, was Barlow Chevrolet in Delran, N.J. From 1978-1988 he worked as a car salesman; a profession in which he excelled.
We are admonished by the prophets of old to “remember thy creator in thy youth...” And Wayne did. As a child, he and his brother could be seen climbing the hill to the old St. Mathew's Methodist Church. And as a young adult, under the pastorship of the late Rev. Pendleton, his name was recorded on the church roll. It was during this time period that he was led to become a teacher of the Sunday school he once attended.
Then, on April 24, 1988, in this same House of Prayer, he boldly returned to Gods throne of grace; completely surrendering his all to the person of Jesus Christ.
Born again and spirit filled, Wayne had a burning desire to worship and praise the Lord with instrument and song. And as a member of the men’s choir, the latter part of his vision was manifested. However, the former (play gospel music on his saxophone), was a dream unfulfilled.
Home! Family! Doctors! Nurses! Hospitals! Pills Needles! Insulin! Blood test! Restricted diets! Bed rest! Faith! Fight! and Prayer!; would for the next thirty years become the prescription administered and refilled as needed.
December 5, 1990, 1 o’clock a.m., 1518 Velde Ave., Delair, N.J.
Petition granted! Wayne resides in heaven now; leaving behind his wife, Barbara, three sons, Wayne, Jr., Mark and Brian; four step children; Wilmer, Tony, Scott and Monica: two grandchildren; Sakeeha and Siran; brother, Bruce, Sr.; Uncle & Aunt, Daniel and Camella Bundy: two nieces, Cassandra and Naikia; a nephew, Bruce, Jr.; Great Nephew, Christopher; Great nieces; Alexandrea and Jazmine and a host of other family members and friends.
