Juliet Walker Rundle, a mother, grandmother, teacher, state senator, attorney, mentor, friend, and a fighter for the people of Wyoming County, West Virginia, was carried away by the angels on October 18, 2023, at the age of 85.
Juliet is survived by her two children, Juliet Balfour and Reuben Rundle, along with his wife, Julia, and her granddaughter, Juliet Danielle Rose, along with her husband, Michael.
Born in Princeton, W.V., on August 27, 1938, the only child of Wilbur Walker and Grace Walker, she hailed from a family history with roots tracing back to the Clarks. As a child, Juliet was a spirited girl who enjoyed the outdoors and horseback riding. Even as a young girl, she exhibited a strong work ethic, assisting in her parents' produce store in Pineville, West Virginia.
Her dedication to learning led her to graduate from Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan, with a degree in teaching, a path she continued to follow. Subsequently, she furthered her education by graduating from WVU College of Law. Following her legal studies, she practiced as an attorney in Wyoming County and also served as a West Virginia State Senator.
Her career left an impact on countless lives. Known for her wisdom, humor, and quiet strength, a friend fittingly remarked, "She exemplified the integrity described in 'To Kill a Mockingbird' because Juliet was the same at home as she was on the public streets."
In her leisure time, she enjoyed being with her family, traveling, painting, watching movies, and was an avid reader. Throughout her life, she generously shared her wisdom and guidance, mentoring numerous individuals who will forever remember her influence. Juliet's passing leaves a void that will be deeply felt by her family, friends, and the community she served so well. She was the shining example of the best in all of us.
A visitation to honor her memory will take place from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. with services starting at 3 p.m. on November 11, 2023, at the Evans-Calfee Funeral Home at 614 Appalachian Hwy, Pineville, WV 24874.
