CARRIE LOUISE CUNNINGHAM

1910 – 2010

Passed away peacefully at Greenwoods on Feb. 24, 2010 just 5 days before her 100th birthday. Born to Louise S. Davis, noted educator, and Albert B. Davis, engineer, in New Orleans. Carrie Louise met Cyril Cunningham from Victoria, her future husband, when he was working for her uncle and training to be an entomologist in New Orleans. Carrie Louise and Cyril moved to Canada when she was 19 years of age. They were married for 63 years. The couple retired in 1965 on Salt Spring along with other members of her bridge club, who were looking for adventure. Carrie Louse was a treasurer for the North Vancouver School’s band and the North Shore Victorian Order of Nurses during the 1950’s and 1960’s. Carrie Louise was known for her wit and Salt Spring bridge tournaments. Mourned by her son, Allen (Maxine), nephews Gary (Ernell) and Allen Jr., nieces Jerie-Lynn (Mike) and Peggy (Ray) and friends and Greenwoods’ staff. Special thanks to Greenwoods for the many years of wonderful care and thoughtfulness both at the daycare level and in permanent residence. Their dedicated staff and caring personnel made her life trulty worthwhile during her later years. A celebration of her life, New Orleans style, was held at home. A graveside service for family is planned.
