Pauline “Nanny” Bundy Morris
June 29, 1930 – Nov. 7, 2019
TOPEKA — Pauline “Nanny” Bundy Morris, Auburn, died Thursday, Nov. 7, 2019, surrounded by her family, at a Topeka hospital.
She was born June 29, 1930, in Topeka, the daughter of Wilson “Purdy” and Bertha Sherretts Bundy. She attended Liberty Grade School, graduated from Washburn Rural High School and then attended business school.
She cooked for many years at Auburn Grade School and Auburn Junior High School after her children were all in school.
Our fondest memories will be July 4 suppers at her home, with fried chicken, homemade bread and homemade ice cream for more than 50 years. Making bready bears to leave for Santa, with grandchildren, great-grandchildren and whoever else may show up. Looking forward to see what the new handmade ornament was going to be every Christmas, for each grandchild and their plus one and caring for the small zoo at her house. There was always enough food at Sunday dinner no matter how many extras came with family and they all knew they were always welcome.
Pauline married Robert Morris Aug. 31, 1952, in Dover. He preceded her in death on March 11, 2013.
Besides her husband, she was preceded in death by her parents; a brother, Garland “Buddy” Bundy; and a niece and a nephew.
