Sep 26, 1953

Mrs. Eathel MacGregor Mundelle, 69, former well-known Mt. Vernon resident, died shortly after 9 o'clock last night at her home in Indianapolis.  She had been in ill health for a number of years but her death came unexpectedly.


The deceased was born in Mt. Vernon, the daughter of William and Evelyn Donaldson MacGregor, highly respected Mt. Vernon residents for many years.


For many years Mrs. Mundelle was a clerk in the Mt. Vernon post office where her pleasant disposition and accomodating service made many friends.  In 1921 she was transferred to the Indianapolis office and she had resided in that city since that time.


She was a member of First Methodist Church in Mt. Vernon during her residence here but upon her removal to Indianapolis she transferred her membership to Broadway Methodist Church in the capital city.  She also was a member of the Rebekah lodge in Indianapolis.


Her husband died five years ago and the only near surviving relatives are cousins, including Carl Curtis and Miss Vera Curtis of Savah in Posey county, Charles  MacGregor and Mrs. Inez Boyer of Lexington, Ky; and Mrs. Anna Kemper of Grayville, Illinois.


Following short services at the Flanner & Buchanan Funeral Home in Indianapolis at 4 o'clock Monday afternoon the body will be brought to the Short Funeral Home in Mt. Vernon.  Funeral rites will be held at the Short chapel here at 3 o’clock Wednesday afternoon in charge of Rev. J. Kenneth Forbes, pastor of First Methodist Church.  Burial will be in Bellefontaine cemetery.


Friends may call at the Short Funeral Home after 3 o'clock Tuesday afternoon.
