Rowena "Connie" Lund of Oxford, Georgia, passed away Monday, March 16, 2020, at the age of 93. Mrs. Lund was a native of Hopewell, Virginia, and after marriage, she and her husband put down roots in first Danville and then Richmond, Virginia.

She was preceded in death by her husband of 56 years, George J. Lund; parents, Charles and Myrtie Connelly; sisters, Jewell Gammon, Dorcas Simmons, Elva Stephenson, Melva Moyer; brothers, Tilman Connelly, Charles Connelly.
Survivors include her daughters, Patrice Lund Sumrell and husband, Don, Frances Lund Redick and husband, Craig; grandchildren, Clay Sumrell, Eric Sumrell and wife, Sara; great-grandchildren, Madison Sumrell, Mackenzie Sumrell; brother and sister-in-law, Clifton and Helen Connelly; as well as numerous beloved nieces and nephews.

Aunt Rowena was the best aunt in the world to me. She always had so many sorties to tell me about my at my grandparents house. She made me laugh and she made sure I knew I was loved by the whole family. She was a very special person in my life and I will never forget you and your loving ways, I will miss your sweet phone calls too. I think of you so often.
