"She's left a lasting impression with all the wonderful things she's done for Chatham Township," Sullivan said. "You look at her for service in the town, both professionally and personally, what she's done for the senior center, the library, the historical society. A remarkable, amazing, lady." 

Lundt turned 100 last Aug. 10 and was honored by the Chatham Township Committee with a proclamation at that time.
