Documentation:
* Buried in Pleasant Ridge Cemetery, Union County, Mississippi. Her marker says, "She died as she lived, trusting in God."
* Obit saved by Pauline Chunn Roach
MRS. CORDELIA CHUNN New Albany, Mississippi
Services for Mrs. Cordelia Chunn of Blue Mountain, Mississippi, were held at 2 p.m. Saturday at Pleasant Ridge Baptist Church in Union County with the Rev. Earnest Rakestraw officiating. Burial was in the church cemetery under the direction of Smallwood Funeral Home.
Mrs. Chunn, who was 78, died at Blue Mountain at 12:30 a.m. Friday after suffering a paralytic stroke six weeks ago. She was born in Union County, but had lived in Blue Mountain for the past five years. She was a Baptist.
She leaves five sons, Norman Chunn, Leroy Chunn, Clovis Chunn and Ronalde Chunn, all of Blue Mountain, and Boyce Chunn of Cotton Plant, Mississippi; one daughter, Mrs. Pauline Roach of Blue Mountain; two brothers, Huey Carter of Memphis and Tom Carter of East Prairie, MO; 10 grandchildren and four great grandchildren.
* In Cordelia's Bible she'd written in the fly leaf this reference: John 14:26 which reads, "But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you." This Bible was copyrighted in 1915 and lovingly saved in a plastic bag by her family. In the front of the Bible, Pauline Chunn Roach wrote the following, " This Bible belonged to Author and Cordelia Chunn then Coy and Randle Chunn got it when Mama died. Then, when Randle died, Coy gave it to me." Pauline gave Glenn Roach, Cordelia's glasses and walking stick. After Pauline died and her children were cleaning out her apartment, we found the coat of Cordelia that she is wearing in many pictures, also 2 of Cordelia's purses, and her coin purse.
