Obituary for Marie Cunningham Blanchard

Marie Cunningham Blanchard, age 70, of West Liberty, KY, passed away peacefully in her
sleep on Wednesday, Nov. 15, 2017, at the St. Claire Regional Hospital, in Morehead, KY.

She was born on April 19, 1947, in Blossburg, PA, daughter of the late John W. Cunningham
and Marie Dann Cunningham.

She graduated from Mansfield High School in 1965 in Mansfield, PA, and from Mansfield
University of Pennsylvania in 1968, with a bachelor’s degree in math and a secondary degree
in elementary education. She later earned an associate degree in architecture from Southern
Polytechnic State University in Marietta, GA.

Following graduation from Mansfield University of Pennsylvania, she worked for IBM as a
Systems Engineer for 10 years before retiring to start a family. She home-schooled her
children. She volunteered at Holy Family Catholic Church in Marietta, GA, as a Sunday School teacher and as an 8th grade coordinator during the time her children attended Sunday School.

She continued her passion for teaching when she organized weeklong summer camps at the
Woodland Community in rural Clairfield, TN, for 8 years. Marie enjoyed tutoring high school
students in math once her children graduated high school and were off on their own.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by five brothers, Patrick, Stephen,
Martin, Timothy and Michael.

She is survived by her husband of 44 years, Wallace Blanchard, III, of West Liberty, KY, four
children, John (Blue Marshall) of Roanoke, VA, Charlotte (Scott DeLong) of Gainesville, GA,
Wallace, IV, of West Liberty, KY, and Tait (Kelly Ann Miller), who is currently serving in the US Army. Marie also has nine grandchildren, Rena, Denman, Landon, Gavin, Evan, Cameron, Madeline, Patrick and Finn, one sister, Catherine Seefeldt of Mifflinburg, PA, and two brothers, John Cunningham of Merrimack, NH, and Dan Cunningham of Flower Mound, TX, as well as sisters- and brothers-in-law, and several nieces and nephews.

A private memorial service will be held at a later date.

Northcutt & Son Home for Funerals in Morehead, KY, is caring for arrangements.
