Eva Cunningham Obituary, Death – Today, we are celebrating the life of Eva Smith Cunningham as well as her legacy, and we do so with a lot of joy. Our dearly departed Eva left this life at 4:08 p.m., in the JFK Hospital in Atlantis, Florida. She went to be with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, where she will be in a better place.
She was born on September 23, 1929, in Boynton Beach, Florida, to her parents, Reginald James Smith and Alvilda Rebecca Knowles Smith. Her grandfather was Reginald James Smith, and her grandmother was Alvilda Rebecca Knowles Smith. Emily, Kathleen, Joe, her twin brother Eugene, Geneva (Betty), David, and Lorene were the first seven members of Eva’s family to pass away before she did. Eva’s parents also passed away before she did.
Her daughter, Kimberly Clark Miller (Wendell Miller), her grandchildren Donta’e Maddox, Whitley Maddox, Tiffany Maddox, and Ulysses Maddox, and her great-grandchildren, as well as her nieces and nephews, cousins, extended family, and friends, carry on Eva’s legacy.
Someone we cared about received their education from the Palm Beach County School System. In the year 1921, life was challenging, but Eva never gave up. She worked as a barmaid at the once-famous Continental Club (located on 10th Avenue in Boynton Beach), as well as a housekeeper, cook, hairdresser, and caregiver. She lived for 91 years.
Eva was never one to take life too seriously!! A woman of God who is filled with the Holy Spirit and who continually gives thanks to God for another day. The gregarious person enjoyed activities such as cooking, traveling, playing cards, and watching television (game shows especially Family Feud, westerns, golf, and tennis tournaments).
We are grateful to Eva for loving us and having an impact on our lives in a way that no one else could. Because of all that you’ve done for us as an inspiration, a confidante, a relationship counselor, and a symbol of hope, we will never forget you.
