(1909 – 1990)
One of Eunice’s former supervisors, B.B. Williamson, Jr., said of her, “Her only concern was to do the job well and on time — regardless of the hours it took.”
“She was a people person — very pleasant and helpful in all relationships.”
Eunice, a native of Coatopa community in Sumter County, exemplified the spirit of Extension work as she went about her duties as a secretary in various Extension offices for more than a decade. In each case, she became an integral part of the Extension team, devoting whatever time and effort it took to get the job done.
She became secretary to the Rural Development Specialist in Livingston in December 1961, serving five counties in the Warrior-Tombigbee Rural Development Area through 1963.
In 1964 and 1965, she was secretary to the District Program Specialist of District ID, serving 17 Southwest Alabama counties.
From January 1966 through June 1967, she served as secretary to the Perry County Agent in Marion. And from 1969 through 1973, she served as Expanded Food and Nutrition secretary to the Sumter County Extension Service. She retired in 1973 and moved to Tennessee.
She died in July 1990, leaving a daughter, Mrs. Susan Smith of Jackson, Tennessee.
In tribute to her life and her work in Extension, the name of Eunice C. Mundy is inscribed on the dedicatory plaque of the Extension Memorial Chapel.
