Cunningham, Peggy

The world lost a beloved mother, grandmother, and friend, Peggy Cunningham, 90, on Wednesday, January 12, 2022. Peggy passed away at home, surrounded by loved ones. She was born to the late Clyde and Elva Whittenburg on February 13, 1931, in Bartlesville, OK. Peggy graduated from Dewey High School in 1949 and married her high school sweetheart, the late Lester Cunningham, on April 9th, 1950. Lester and Peggy then relocated to Carmel-by-the-Sea, California for Lester's Army enlistment. Peggy worked for Del Monte and spent her spare time on the beach with her best friend, Priscilla. After moving back to Oklahoma and then relocating to Missouri for work, they landed in Huntsville, AL, where they raised their children and found their forever home in Athens, AL. After the passing of her husband, Lester, Peggy split her time between her home in Athens, AL. and her home in Bartlesville, OK.
Peggy was an amazing cook, loved entertaining, and an avid thrift shopper. She was always on the hunt for a great deal and loved blessing those around her with her finds. When Peggy wasn't serving others, she enjoyed playing dominos and cards, taking trips with friends, and visiting her family in Oklahoma.
She is survived by her daughter, Tammy Latham of Bartlesville, OK, her son, Eric Cunningham and his partner, Vickie Smith of Athens, AL., her earthly daughter, Shelly Dickerson and her husband Ron Dickerson of Athens, AL., her grandchildren, Alex Cunningham, Casie Icks and husband Ryan Icks, Charlie Porter and husband Colton Porter, Chelsie Wagoner and husband Marshall Wagoner, Jake Dickerson, Luke Dickerson, her great grandchildren, Chloe, A.J., Ellie, Gray, Lad, Evie, Maleigha, Sadie, Georgia, nieces, nephews and countless friends.
