Betty Jeane Cunningham, 95, of Tipton, passed away Jan. 9, 2021 at Tipton Hospital.
She was born Feb. 12, 1925 at Tipton, to Lawrence and Ella (Miller) Shupperd.
Mrs. Cunningham graduated from Tipton High School then completed two years of college taking business administration courses. She married Paul Griesel in 1946. He preceded her in death in 1974. In 1978 she married Wilbert A. Cunningham who preceded her in death in 2013.
Mrs. Cunningham enjoyed her role as a homemaker that included being a wife, mother and grandmother. She was an active member of Cicero Christian Church, the Indianapolis Art League and a volunteer for Channel 20. Mrs. Cunningham was an artist whose medium was water color and acrylic landscapes. One of the art classes in which she was enrolled required a self-portrait that she found was a difficult task. Gaining confidence, she later painted a portrait of her grandson. Leisure time would find her reading, knitting or sewing.
Survivors include a son, Scott (Donna) Griesel of Windfall, Ind.; sisters, Linda Burkhardt and Gwen Morris both of Tipton, Ind.; a grandson, Todd (Vicki) Griesel of Tipton, Ind.; and great-grandchildren, Jessica Griesel and Cole Griesel both of Tipton, Ind.
