Laudie was a homemaker and a faithful member of First Baptist Church of Urania until her health began to fail. She loved attending church, reading her daily devotionals, and meeting with her weekly prayer group. She was a fun and loving lady who enjoyed cooking, sewing, fishing, and, most of all, spending time with her family.
Laudie was the last survivor and fifth of seven children born to the union of Sidney Alfred and Mary Elizabeth Underwood Dunn. She was preceded in death by her husband of fifty years, infant fraternal twins, parents, and siblings: Seburn Dunn, Jesse Mae Meredith, Clyde Dunn, Virgil Dunn, Lola Brown Christafel, and John Kenneth Dunn.
Left to cherish her memory are her daughter, Mary Beth Sellers Gibson, and husband, Jon; granddaughter, Erin Lea Gibson Faherty, and husband, Randy, great-grandson, Jake Liam Faherty and numerous nieces and nephews.
