Mrs. Luna was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, and friend. She was born on September 6, 1928 to the late Harry Lee and Elliotte Stockard McCrory. She was preceded in death by her husband, Benjamin Curtis Luna, Jr., after a loving marriage of 63 years.
Mrs. Luna is survived by a daughter, Patricia Adele Luna (Santa Rosa Beach, FL); a son, Dr. Andrew Lee Luna, and his wife, Danita (Florence, AL); two grandchildren, Jessica Adele Luna and Jay Patrick Luna; a brother Alfred Ray McCrory (Rhode Island); and countless people who will remember her as a beautiful Southern lady, kind and compassionate friend, and person of deep and abiding faith.
Mrs. Luna was a member of First United Methodist Church, Northport, and was active in Christian discipleship for many years. She attended Point Washington UMC while living in Florida and she loved both her churches.
