Obituary Condolences

Funeral services for Winifred Garland "W.G." Cunningham, 78, of Chickasha, were held Feb. 9, 2008, at the Ferguson Funeral Home Chapel.
W.G. Cunningham was born March 30, 1929, in Chickasha, the son of Garland and Belvia (Stephens) Cunningham. He died Feb. 6, 2008, in Chickasha.
On Jan. 6, 1947, at the age of 17, Winifred married the love of his life, RuJoyce (Hubbard) in Childress, Texas. They were blessed with five children and enjoyed each others companionship for over 60 wonderful years.
Winifred was a master cabinet maker and ran his family business for more than 30 years. In later years, he devoted all his time and efforts to making custom furniture for his family and friends. His personal goal was to make each of his 13 grandchildren their own unique piece, and he accomplished this remarkable task before passing.
Winifred was extremely proud of his five children's accomplishments. Larry served 20 years in the Army; Clinton took over the custom family business; Stanley had his own electrical contract company; Barbara and Loretta raised their children and went on to their own careers; Barbara owns her own residential cleaning company; and Loretta has been with Wal-Mart for over 19 years.
Winifred was preceded in death by both his parents; wife RuJoyce Cunningham; and son Stanley Cunningham.
He is survived by one brother, William and Sylvia Cunningham, of Chickasha; two sisters, Alta Dever, of Roswell and Georgia and Lloyd Howeth, of Terrel, Texas; two sons, Larry and Shirley Cunningham, of Chickasha, and Clinton and Tressa Cunningham, of Golead, Texas; two daughters, Loretta and Larry Bean, and Barbara and Clipper Carpenter, all of Alamogordo; 13 grandchildren; 21 great-grandchildren; and numerous nieces and nephews.
Winifred accepted Christ as his Savior at Lucile Baptist Church 60 years ago.
Interment followed at the Ninnekah Cemetery under the direction of Ferguson Funeral Home.
