June Kincraig Cunningham (1912–1939)

Death of Mrs. E. B. Cunningham

The death of Mrs. Edward Buick Cunningham, which occurred on Wednesday, has come as a great shock to her friends. Mrs. Cunningham was formerly Miss June Russell, daughter of Mrs. Mary Russell. She was born at Barunah Plains, and from her girlhood she was interested in the Girl Guide movement. As she grew up her sympathy with the kindergarten movement led her to devote much time to it. Mrs. Cunningham was also a keen sportswoman and she rode and played golf and tennis. Her funeral yesterday was largely attended.
