REMEMBERING: GRANTSVILLE 'GRAND DAME' PASSES AT 96 - Margaret Cunningham Leaves Legacy (2011)


Well-known Grantsville woman Margaret
Cunningham has died peacefully at 96.

Margaret was full of life and liked helping others, and once told the Herald that she enjoyed going to the Senior Center, "To help the old people." She was in her 90s then.

Her son, Larry Cunningham, has been her caregiver for the past two years or so, after her eyesight and hearing continued to fail. She also has a daughter, Lee Anna Jobin.

"She didn't really have any big disease," said Larry, but she did take a heart pill.

Her body has been donated to science at West Virginia University. A memorial service will be held at a later date.

Margaret's husband, Gerald "Cap" Cunningham died in 2001.

She was a member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars and Friends of Minnie Hamilton, she also belonged to the Order of Eastern Star #73, Sunny Cal Gals-Red Hat Society, and participated in activities at CCCOA's Senior Center and was a member of Pleasant Hill United Methodist Church.

There will be a Celebration of Life Reception in her honor at 2:00 P.M. Saturday, November 19, 2011 at the Pleasant Hill United Methodist Church Social Center.
