Edith Alma Kundis
December 10, 1921 – January 17, 2021
Alma R Kundis, age 99, of Mechanicsville died January 17th at Henrico Doctors Hospital.
Born Edith Alma Reeves on December 10, 1921 in Yemasee, SC, she was the daughter of Alice Frances (McSherry) and Michael Monroe Reeves. Alma moved to Richmond, VA in 1951 and was a career employee of Bell Atlantic, retiring in 1984. She was a member of Richmond's First Baptist Church and the Loyalty-Palmore Bible Class. Alma enjoyed attending her church, vacationing at Myrtle Beach, SC, visiting with family, and playing Bingo, Scrabble, and Upwords at which she excelled.
Gracious was the word that described Alma. She was gracious and loving to everyone she knew and came into contact with. She remembered special occasions of family and friends with cards and calls. The cards and special invitations to weddings and graduations she received were cherished and saved. Her home was filled with pictures of family and friends and her collection of angels. Photos of holidays spent with the Kundis, Reeves, and Schneider families were pleasant reminders of happy occasions.
She was predeceased by her husband Emil J. Kundis, her parents, her siblings Michael (Anna Mae) Reeves and Harold (Emma Jean) Reeves of SC and Gladys (Jack) Reeves Carney of NJ, niece Kay Reeves Reebe, and grandson Douglas Clark. She is survived by Laurie Bray of Staunton, VA, David (Cookie) Kundis of Newport News, VA and Carol (Joseph) Breeding of Mechanicsville, VA and grandchildren Tracy (Charles) Prince, Jason (Paulette) Kundis, Brian (Molly) Kundis, and Michele Franz; also, great grandchildren Douglas Clark, Samantha (Carter) Cooke, Avery Prince, Reilly Kundis, Anna Kundis, Cameron Kundis, McKenna Kundis, and Michelle Enders; and great-great grandchildren Rebecca Enders, Taliesin Clark, and expected baby Cooke. Her surviving nieces and nephews include Sherry (Lemmy) Shott, Michael (Lisa) Reeves, Hal Reeves, Edwin (Louann) Reeves, Dallas Reeves Schmidt, Peter Reeves, Patricia (Kenneth) Cavender, Sue (Charles) Davison and J. Michael (Susan) Carney. Also left to miss Alma are her very dear friends Mary "T" Nagusky, and Nancy (John) Clary Schneider and son Josh Schneider, a grandchild of her heart.

I have known Alma for over 35 years and found her to be a very loving and good person. When my son was born in 1990, she and Emil took him at least 2 days a week and loved and cared for him as if he were one of their own grandchildren. They along with my parents, their next door neighbors, watched Josh grow and continued their care after school days.
When Emil died, Josh wanted to visit him in heaven. Alma would talk with him and assure Josh that papa was watching over him. Alma has been an integral part of our life, spending time with us during holidays and family celebrations as well as the times of snow and other storm events. She has been a dear part of our family and we will miss her and playing UPWORDS which she always won!! Love you Nanny.

My name is Doug Clark, Jr., son of Doug Clark, Sr., and Alma's great grandson. Alma was the sweetest and friendliest woman I've ever known, full of care and love for everyone that she talked to. She considered everyone family and was an open ear to anyone that needed to talk. While I'm sad that my wife (Emily Clark) and I didn't get the opportunity to see or talk to her much over her last couple years, and our son (Taliesin) didn't get the chance to meet her due to covid, she will be greatly missed. However, her memory and her legacy will continue to live on in the hearts of those she knew.
To the family: May the Lord bless you and keep you, may His face shine upon you, may the Lord lift up his countenance upon you and bring you peace.
