She was born in Birome, Tx in 1920 and married R.B.
Cunningham in 1937. During her 96 years
here on earth she worshipped her Lord daily and was a 1957 charter member of
Bellmead Baptist Church now Greater Waco Baptist Church. She volunteered countless hours helping in
the church office, calling new members, teaching Sunday school and she loved to
sing in the church choir. She was
blessed with a large family who she loved dearly and they loved her in return,
affectionately calling her Ninny Mo.
She was a great cook and well known for her pecan pies and she made the
best green beans one could find not only cooking them but growing them in her
garden. She will forever be remembered
for her quilt making and she did that so well.
Her beautiful quilts will be cherished by her family and wrap them in
her love for years to come.
Preceding her in death is her husband R.B., son Vernon
Cunningham, grandson Randy Cunningham, two sisters Shirley Dunn and Joyce
Hawthorne, and two brothers Joe Latimer and Raymond Latimer.
She is survived by her son, Velton Cunningham and wife
Darlene; her daughter-in-law, Barbara Cunningham; her grandchildren, Diana and
Michael Crosby, Mark and Jerri Cunningham, Sarah and David Donaldson, Janeene
Cunningham, and Bobby and Cindy Cunningham plus 19 great grandchildren, 13
great great grandchildren with 4 on the way; her sisters, Jane Northup and
Vernell Taylor and her brother, Lewis Latimer.
Pallbearers will be her great grandsons. Honorary Pallbearers will be her grandsons
and the Deacons of her church.
The family would like to thank Interim Hospice and
Ridgecrest Nursing Home staff for your tender care of our mother and
grandmother these past few months. You
were so sweet to her and she loved each one of you.
Memorials in lieu of flowers can be sent to Greater Waco
Baptist Church in her memory.
