Long Description:
The grave of Johnnie Lunday is located in the new section of the IOOF cemetery at the south end very near Eagle Drive. She is buried in the Lunday family plot next to W. J. Lunday (her husband) and Elizabeth Lunday, their daughter.

We found some ore information on Mrs. Lunday on the Find-A-Grave website as follows: (visit link)

"Mrs. Johnnie Ella Lunday

BIRTH 14 Jan 1863
DEATH 20 Feb 1963 (aged 100)
BURIAL Odd Fellows Cemetery Denton, Denton County, Texas, USA
PLOT Section W Block 6 Grave 8"

We also checked on Ancestry.com, where we discovered her in the 1910, 1920, 1930 and 1940 US Censuses. In 1910 she is living with her husband W. J. Lunday and their children in Montague County Texas. He is a working as a medical doctor, and she is keeping house. They had been married at that point for 25 years.

By 1930 they had relocated to Denton, living at 1714 W Sycamore Street near downtown Denton. Her husband (by then aged 77) had retired. By the 1940 US Census Johnnie Ella Lunday was a widow, living with her daughter Elizabeth, who was supporting the family as a stenographer.

We also found her death certificate on Ancestry, which confirms Johnnie Lunday's age as 100, and lists her cause of death as as compound fracture of her left leg suffered in a fall at her home.

Thanks to elyob for the death certificate image in the waymark and the nudge to do more research.
