Mrs. Cunningham was born January 2, 1892, in Rockville, Colorado, to Patrick and Margaret O'Rourke Flood. Her family had located to Colorado due to a miner's lock-out in Spring Valley, Illinois. Some time after her birth, the family returned to Spring Valley, and she remained there until her marriage to Patrick Cunningham on May 28, 1921, in St. Mary's Cathedral in Peoria, Illinois. The new family settled in Carlinville where Patrick worked in the mines.

She leaves in addition to her husband, one son, Jerome "Dutch" Cunningham of Nashville, TN, two daughters, Mrs. Joseph (Sheila) Needham of Peoria and Mrs. Kenneth (Jane) Alberico of Atlanta, GA, and 14 grandchildren.
