Dorothy Bundy, 90

Dorothy "Kitty" Lillian (Hove) Bundy, age 90, passed away peacefully on April 30, 2014.

She was born in Alexandria to Clifford and Lillian Hove on April 23, 1924. She was a graduate of Alexandria High School, class of 1942. She attended Hamline University and received her RN degree after completing her nurses training at Asbury Hospital. Kitty was a member of the Cadet Nursing Corps, established with President Roosevelts advocacy, in 1943. The Cadet Corps served in many patient hospital wards during WW II.

Kitty lived a full and happy life with her husband, Charles "Chuck" Bundy. They were married 63 years and raised four daughters and loved and cared for many dogs and cats.

They had wonderful friends, great parties and lots of fun. It was always a beautiful day in Bundy land. She was the best mother and wife and we loved her so. She was an avid gardener and volunteered for more than 25 years as treasurer of the Alexandria Food Shelf.

She enjoyed the companionship of her sisters, daughters, son-in-law, granddaughters and great-grandchildren. She had a sparkle in her eye and was a joy to be around. She had a sharp mind and a keen wit. Always thinking of others before herself, she was patient, kind, thoughtful and wise. She set a great example for us all. We are grateful to have been a part of her life and will miss her dearly.

She is survived by sisters, Margaret MacLeran and Edith Kelly; daughters, Connie Bundy, Lynn Bundy, Janet Bundy and Janets husband Eric Petkoff, and Jeri Bundy; granddaughters, Cassandra Ramalingam and husband Krishna, Jessica Lindquist; and great-grandchildren, Ryan, Lillian and Dylan.

She was preceded in death by her parents; sister, Gertrude Moreau; and her husband.

We will celebrate her life at the Emmanuel Episcopal Church on Saturday, May 10 at 11 a.m. Visitation will be one hour prior to service.

Arrangements are with Anderson Funeral Home in Alexandria;
