Of the many ways we tell family and friends we love them, feeding them is at the top of the list. You could not stop and see Mrs. Lunsford without her making sure you got something to eat.

She was called “Granny” by her grandchildren, whom she loved very much. Mrs. Lunsford was a member of Mt. Zion Baptist Church Number 2.

Survivors include her husband of 69 years, Waldo Lunsford; daughter and son-in-law, Jan and Larry Robinson; son and daughter-in-law, Jerry and Penny Lunsford, all of Dahlonega; grandchildren, Josh and Ashley Robinson, Lyndsey and Clint Freeland, and Laura Lunsford; great-grandchildren, Jack Freeland, Rhett Freeland, and Evy Freeland; as well as several nieces, nephews, and other relatives.
