Johnnie Bendy

From her decades of service to the community to her decades of teaching, most anyone local will know, or at least know of, Johnnie Bendy. She taught for a total of 38 years in our school system, 20 under the segregated system and another 18 years after desegregation.

Mrs. Bendy was born in Longview on 12-2-1918. She later married Rev. F.W. Bendy. She was a member of the Muddy Creek Baptist Church. She also served with the following organizations in our town for many years:

  • Business & Professional Auxiliary
  •  Mineola Planning and Zoning Board
  •  United Way Block Chairman
  •  Friends of the Mineola Library
  •  Mineola Historical Society
  •  Lake Country Playhouse

Mrs. Bendy was also instrumental in the historical development of the Mineola Nature Preserve.

We will have more details regarding her service arrangements as they become available.
