Amy J. Cunningham
Amy J. Cunningham, age 60, of Mansfield, died peacefully on Sunday, February 6, 2022 at her home surrounded by her family- exactly the way she wanted it.
Amy was born on June 17, 1961 in Shelby. She was a 1979 graduate of Ontario High School and worked as a massage therapist and a hairdresser throughout her life. In 2004, Amy moved to Florida where she truly was so very happy. She loved the beach and the warm sun on her skin, but, most importantly, having her daughter, Angela, and grandson, Caden, accompany her in the move. She loved them so very dearly and could not have been gone from them even for the beauty of Florida. Although Florida quickly became her home, Amy returned to Ohio to be near her family during her strong battle and fight with cancer.
Amy loved shooting pool and was involved with numerous leagues and competed in many tournaments near and far. She also enjoyed flower gardening- a trait she inherited from her grandma. Ultimately, however, her number one interest and hobby was her grandson, Caden, a spot he quickly took from his mom when he came into the world. Angela’s position did not downgrade though, it merely transitioned to best friend.
Those left behind to cherish her memory include her mother: Constance L. “Connie” (Stevens) Stuckert of Ontario; daughter: Angela Cunningham (Ian Zeune) of Mansfield; grandson: Caden Cunningham; sister: Joni (Jeff) Davis of Ontario; as well as nieces, nephews, other relatives, and friends, especially her dear friend: Becky Croyle. Amy was preceded in death by her father, Joe Stuckert, on March 27, 2021.
Funeral services will be held on Saturday, February 12, 2022 at 11 am at Ontario United Methodist Church, 3540 Park Avenue West, Ontario, Ohio 44906. Family and friends are welcome to visit one hour prior to the service from 10-11 am. Pastor Karen Wagenhals will officiate and memorial contributions may be made to the OhioHealth Hospice via their website, https://foundation.ohiohealth.com/giving, and selecting OhioHealth Hospice as the designation for donation.
The family would like to express their appreciation for OhioHealth Hospice. The nurses and aides were so gracious to the family, providing care whenever needed, answering with knowledge the many questions the family had as they walked the end journey with Amy. They were available at any time to assist and to provide care for Amy or for the other family members. Also, we sincerely appreciated the care provided by the Mansfield office of the Cleveland Clinic. Dr. Al and his staff were present with Amy during her walk with the chemo and radiation treatments. Their truthful answers and strength were always present. The family also appreciates the many prayers and messages that were shared during this journey. We were never alone with our fears and questions. We were always hand-in-hand with those who cared and shared with us.
