Teresa Jane “Tess” Cunningham, 79, of South Charleston, WV, passed away November 5, 2023, at Hubbard Hospice House-West, South Charleston.
She was the daughter of the late Arthur and Josephine Day. A 1961 graduate of Charleston High School, she later became the administrative assistant to University of Charleston’s Vice-President of Advancement and CAMC Foundation’s President, with retirement in between.

She and Bill traveled to several states, where she won several ribbons and trophies, with her last showing at Kansas City, MO, where she was a ribbon winner.
Survivors include her husband, William “Bill” Cunningham; daughter, Kelly Porter (Rick); step-daughter, Kay Porras (Joe); step-son, Brent Cunningham (Jane); sisters, Joanne Springer, Nancy Davis and Deborah Coffman; brother, Robert Day, along with three granddaughters, and several nieces and nephews.
