Charlotte Marie Walser Cuny was born Jan. 27 1920, in Sioux Falls, S.D., to Fred and Ruby Walser. She passed away in her 94th year on June 23, 2014, in Heath.
She was preceded in death by her husband of 70 years, Eugene S. Cuny Jr., and her eldest son, Fredrick Cuny.
She is survived by her brother, Robert Walser and wife Gail of Minneapolis, Minn.; sister Margaret Shutler and husband Philip of Annandale, Va.; her sons, Eugene and wife Patricia of Austin, Phillip and wife Mary Jo of Dallas, and Christopher and wife Janice of Heath; grandchildren Craig and wife Annie, Zeke, Kittrick, Rachel, Ellen Hawkins and husband Brian, Chad Wells and wife Agnes, Caroline and Austin; and five great-grandchildren.
Charlotte joined the Christian Science Church while in high school in Minneapolis, and upon graduation the family moved to Houston. She enrolled and graduated from the University of Houston, and it was there she met the love of her life, Eugene.
After their marriage and several moves, the family settled in Dallas in the early 1950s. There she was not only an outstanding homemaker, but also a part-time bookkeeper, a member of PEO, and she joined and participated in the operations of the Casa Linda Presbyterian Church.
The family moved to Heath in 1972. She re-joined the Christian Science Church in Terrell, and was an active member until her passing. She also taught pre-K and kindergarten at Happiness House in Rockwall and later at the First Presbyterian Church of Terrell, and was also a volunteer literacy tutor.
She still had time and energy to sing with the Rockwall Lakeside Singers, and particularly loved dancing and teaching line dancing at the Rockwall YMCA. And, together with a close group of friends nicknamed “The Intrepids,” she and Gene traveled the world.
In her later years, she was blessed with the wonderful care of relatives, friends, and neighbors; with patience and concern from the home helpers of Visiting Angels and the staff and doctors of Presbyterian Medical Center; and especially, the loving friendships she had with the members of the Christian Science Church of Terrell and First Presbyterian of Rockwall. Thank-yous go to all.
She will be remembered by the family for her generosity, her constant correspondence, her deep faith, and the always welcoming aroma of fresh-baked cookies.
A memorial service will be held at 1:30 p.m., Saturday, June 28, at First Presbyterian Church, 602 White Hills, Rockwall, TX 75087, with Rev. Cheryl Taylor officiating.
