Elizabeth (Betty) Joan Cunningham

WINDSOR – Elizabeth “Betty” Joan Cunningham of Windsor, went home to be with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, Sunday, Feb. 28, 2021 after a long illness.

She was born in Waterville August 13, 1944, the daughter of Harold Glen Dale and Helena Davenport Tibbetts. She lived in South China as a child and attended Erskine Academy. She worked for the State of Maine and retired from AMHI after 25 years.

Betty loved to sew and made most of her children’s clothes. She made matching Easter dresses for her three daughters and many shirts for her son. She also made several wedding dresses and brides-maid dresses for her children and other family members. Betty was truly a master seamstress. She began quilting over the past 20 years and made countless quilts for her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She participated in local craft fairs for years with many repeat customers who were always looking for her to be there.

Betty was an avid gardener and passed her love for this to her children, and her favorite flower was the yellow rose. She loved to go camping with her husband and family and was part of the Good Sam Club. She loved to travel to Tennessee and Florida and the Great Smokey Mountains were her favorite destination. She also enjoyed going to Dollywood and listening to gospel music.

Betty was predeceased by her husband, Clinton and her brothers, Sherwood and Ronald Dale.

She is survived by her son, Ronald Peaslee and his wife Rhonda of Windsor, her daughters, Judith Eugley and her husband Raymond of Windsor, Jessica Gunning and her husband Mark of Old Town and Julie Ferguson and her husband Mike of Sandy River Plantation; her sister, Beverly Dale of Augusta; her grandchildren Raymond, II, Joshua and Richard Eugley, Ronald Peaslee, Jr. Zachariah Peaslee, Sharon Gunning and Hank Gunning; and her great-grandchildren, Kassidy and Silas Eugley and Vada-Leigh Yvette Peaslee and was looking forward to the arrival of another great-grandchild in August.

A celebration of life will be held at her Residence, 171 Legion Park Road in Windsor, May 22 at 11 a.m. with a luncheon to follow.
