Greensboro - Flada Bunting Putnam, 93, passed away at Friends Home Guilford on November 17, 2020. A graveside service will be held on Saturday, November 21, 2020 at 1 p.m. at Westminster Gardens Cemetery. It will be officiated by Rev. Marcus Putnam and Rev. Nathanael Putnam.

Flada was born in Asheboro, North Carolina to the late Colvin and Esther Scott Bunting. She married Rev. Roy Clayton Putnam in June 1949. In 1955 Roy became the founding pastor of Trinity Methodist Church on Pinecroft Road in Greensboro. Flada was an important part of the growing ministry, investing her talents in the choir, women's ministries, and world mission focus. She assisted Roy in typing and editing his published work and joined him in travel to connect with mission partners around the world. After Roy's death in 1989, she continued to be active in the ongoing life of the church. Through the years she maintained her involvement in reading, piano, and interest in the out of doors.

She was preceded in death by her parents and sister, Carol Barnes. Flada is survived by her children, Ren Putnam and wife Cindy of Reidsville, NC and Marcus Putnam and wife Elaine of Greensboro, NC; grandchildren, Justyn Putnam (Molly), John Mark Putnam (Katie), Nathanael Putnam (Mary), Mary Grace Thomas (Derek), and Noah Putnam; and ten great grandchildren, and sister-in-law Shirley Everage.

So sad to learn of Flada´s passing but know she´s at peace in her eternal home. I really enjoyed talking to her when my mom lived next door to her at Friends Homes. A lovely and sweet lady.

I wanted to add a message to my previous message. With great pleasure I appreciate Flada entrusting me with her bird Bebe when she moved to Friends Home. She told me she prayed over. Who would take her 21 yr. old bird than she did where she would be moving. We loved listening to her blurs whistling the theme to Andy Griffith theme song. Thank you Flada. We loved Bebe and took good care of Bebe.
