Rita Jo Lundy

January 20, 1942 — December 8, 2022

Rita Jo Lundy, 80, longtime Mooresville resident, joined her beloved husband, Cecil Ray, in heaven on December 8, 2022. Rita was born January 20, 1942, in Martinsville, to the late George and Lola (Baldwin) Busbee.


She attended Monrovia High School, and she and Cecil were united in marriage on January 18, 1960. They began a family that consisted of their five children, Barbara (Duane), Ray (Dawn), Patty (Dale), Connie (Randy) and Scott. Rita’s life was complete in her vocation as a devoted wife, loving mother, and grandmother. She was an incredible cook – you never wanted to miss her beans & cornbread, chicken & noodles, fried potatoes, or flitters. An accomplished seamstress, Rita crafted countless quilts for her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. Rita loved her grandchildren immensely and showed that love by attending their various events and simply being present for them.  She also enjoyed ceramics, bowling, playing euchre and rook. Rita was employed for more than 30 years with the Mooresville Schools, where she worked in the cafeteria and later as a bus aid. Rita’s memory will be forever cherished as “THE Best Mom Ever”.


In addition to her five children, she also leaves behind brothers, Keith, and Howard Busbee; sisters, Sharon Johnson, Cheryl Jeffries, Linda Igney, Janice Payne, Sarah Skinner, and Phyllis Busbee; 10 grandchildren; 16 great grandchildren.
