Winifred “Pat” Margaret (Reed) Cunningham

18 February, 1922 – 23 May, 2022

It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of our Mom, the Matriarch of our family. Wife of the late Howard Cunningham, beloved Mom to Carolyn (Alton), Cindy (Mike) and Grandmother to Tyler, Ashley, Ben, Nick, Connor and Great Grandmother to Devin, Avalin and Laila. Predeceased by her parents Walter and Margaret Reed, her daughter Barbara Cunningham and her brother Leonard Reed.

Mom was a British war-bride marrying Dad, Boxing Day, 1944 and arrived in Canada on the first victory boat to Pier 21 May 8, 1945. She was an avid bridge player, taught line-dancing, acted in theatre, was a crafter and did wedding floral arranging and was a long-time Avon lady.

She will be missed by all those who loved and knew her. You certainly did it “Your Way”. Now go and give “old Blue Eyes” and Howard a kiss.

Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to Lahaie & Sullivan Cornwall Funeral Home West Branch, 20 Seventh Street West (613-932-8482). A celebration of Life will be held at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, donations to the Cornwall SPCA would be gratefully accepted. Plant a tree in Mom’s memory. Messages of condolence may be left at
