CHATHAM, NJ - Family and friends of Alice Burton Lundt filled Gloria Dei Lutheran Church on Saturday to celebrate her 100 years of life with a Memorial Service.

Lundt, a 64-year resident of Chatham, died May 15, 2017, after a life that touched so many in a positive way.

"God has loved her through all the seasons of her life ... come now and rest in eternal peace. Amen," Gloria Dei's Rev. Dr. Christa M. Compton said in her homily.

Barbara Hanley, Terry and Tom Berry, and Diane O'Brien each shared remembrances of Lundt and soloist Elizabeth Stuart sang "Amazing Grace" during the service. There was a reception held in the church hall after the service

Born in Manitoba, Canada, Lundt moved to Chatham Township in 1941, where she and her husband, Marvin, raised their two daughters, Christine Lambertus and Sarah McCoubrey.

Lundt worked for Chatham Township as a clerk, administrator and treasurer over a 30-year period and the Chatham Township Municipal Building was dedicated in her name in 1988.

An original member of the building committee at Gloria Dei Lutheran Church, Lundt helped create the Senior Center of the Chathams; served as a member of the Library of the Chathams Board of Trustees; served as a member of the Adult School Board; chaired the Chatham Township Republican County Committee; was a lifetime member of the Chatham Township Art League, and also served two years as president of the Chatham Township Historical Society.

Hanley, who served as Lundt's caretaker in her finals years, told how she rode in a 1912 Model T during the 2016 Chatham Fourth of July Parade weeks before her 100th birthday.

"What a great birthday parade," Lundt told Hanley afterwards.

Imagine a Chatham Toboggan Ride from the Top of Fairmount Avenue to Main Street

Those were the days!

This was back in the early to mid-1900s. The Passaic River meandered through grassy meadows and woods on the north side of Chatham. The marshy ...
