Yet, O Lord..... we are the clay, and you are our potter we are all the work of your hand, Ghundy McShane Edmonds, a beloved son of the Potter’s hands, was born on the beautiful and blessed day of August 19, 1970. His parents, Bettye Broadway Edmonds and Jesse Claude Edmonds, welcomed their beloved and eldest child with love and pride. Ghundy had a God blessed childhood, as he followed the steps ordered by God and his family. He grew and received his Christian tutelage at St. Matthews Missionary Baptist Church, Newton, GA. His ideals and vision for life were realized during his early years and followed him into adulthood. Ghundy received his formal education at East Baker Elementary, Newton, GA, and Mitchell-Baker High School, Camilla, GA. He earned an Agriculture Engineering Degree from Fort Valley State College, Fort Valley, GA. While at Fort Valley, he became a member of the Fred Douglas Masonic Lodge #143. He accepted his first job opportunity with the USDA Soil Conservation Service in West Virginia. After several years in West Virgina, he relocated to the Atlanta area, where he accepted a position with Flowers Baking Company. He held several positions during his 22 year career at Flowers, with his last being that of production manager. Ghundy was an outstanding and self-disciplined young man, as he moved from one plateau of life to another. His easy-going personality and Christian principles helped him realize success and accept early health battles. He never had a “why me” spirit and kept a positive attitude during the struggles with his health. Ghundy married his sweetheart and love of his life, CarolynDianne Baker, on October 14, 1997. Their son and their two grandchildren brought much love, happiness, and enjoyable family togetherness throughout their lives. On Thursday, April 9, 2020, Ghundy made his transition to his eternal home. The Potter called him by name. He leaves memories to be cherished by: his wife, Carolyn Dianne Edmonds; his son, Justin Christian; grandchildren, Kali Christian and Tru Christian; mother, Bettye Edmonds; father, Jesse Edmonds; sister, Yakarii Vance; nephews, Caleb Vance and Jarian Vance; mother-in-law, Ernestine Jackson; four brothers-in-law, Grady Vance of Albany, GA, Clarence (Jessica) Baker of Acworth, GA, and Omar Jones and Rahsaan Jones of Jacksonville, FL; three sisters-in-law, LaTasha (Steve) Edwards of Jacksonville, FL, Tamara (Renard) Murphy of Tampa, FL, and Treasure Jones of Jacksonville, FL; aunts, Oriska Myers of Columbus, GA, Mattie Vaughan of Albany, GA, Demaris Broadwater of Fayetteville, NC, Mavis (Gary) Jenkins of Camilla, GA, Eva Nelson, and Geraldine Holt of Camilla, GA; uncles, John W. (Grace) Broadway of Camilla, GA, William B. (Patricia) Edmonds of Camilla, GA, Andrew S. (Connie) Edmonds of Thomasville, GA, and Lyndon Edmonds of Camilla, GA. Ghundy was predeceased by his maternal grandparents, Carl Sr., and Josephine Holt Broadway; and paternal grandparents, Willie Albert Edmonds and Ruby Edmonds. To the many other relatives, friends, schoolmates, and co-workers, he leaves fond memories and a passionate farewell. Jesus said, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: and whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. John 11:25-26 (KJV)
