Judith Winona Cunningham, 85, of Chillicothe, passed into the arms of our loving Savior at 8:32 p.m. Saturday, September 17, 2022 at her residence following an extended illness.

     She was born January 12, 1937, in Ross County, to the late Hobart W. and Grace G. Barnhart Muntz.  On October 11, 1953, she married Richard V. Cunningham who passed January 6, 1991. 

     Surviving are children, Cynthia Ford, of Greenfield, Tina (Denver) Fore, of Chillicothe, Holly Franko, of New Albany, Terence (Amy Spindler) Cunningham, of Chillicothe, Tamera (Darren) Price, of Chillicothe; a daughter-in-law, Lori Cunningham, of Chillicothe; longtime companion and fiance, Duane “Dobie” Ruschmann, of Chillicothe; 12 grandchildren; 16 great grandchildren; and several nieces, nephews and cousins.  She was predeceased by her oldest son, Randolph “Randy” Cunningham; a great granddaughter; a brother; and two sisters.     

     Judy attended Southeastern High School where she was a cheerleader and majorette.  She was dedicated to raising her “six hams” (better known as her children).  Judy loved her grandchildren, bird watching, gardening, football, basketball, watching Judge Judy, and camping with Dobie and family.  Above all, she especially enjoyed catalog shopping and making her house a home. 

     The family would like to extend a special “thank you” to the staff of Adena Hospice, especially, Jessie, Shelley and Sheri, for the wonderful care given to our mom and compassion shown to our family during this time. 

     A public graveside service will be held for anyone who wishes to attend at 2:30 p.m. Wednesday, September 21, 2022 in Londonderry Cemetery.  There will be no public calling hours.  Arrangements are under the direction of the WARE FUNERAL HOME.
