In Memoriam: Noted Area Artist, Shirley Cunneff, 93

Area artist Charlotte “Shirley” A. Cunneff passed away peacefully, two of her five sons by her side, on June 3. She was 93.

Shirley “was especially fond of the watercolor medium, earning membership to various art societies and exhibiting her work for sale and in juried competitions.
She received numerous accolades for her art, including the Garden State Watercolor Society’s Award for Excellence for a painting of abalone shells in 1996.
Private collectors from Hawaii to Paris have displayed her work in their homes.
Other passions included travel, cooking and speaking out against the Vietnam War. In October 1967, she attended the March to End the War in Vietnam in Washington, D.C., wearing her mink coat to show that it wasn’t just ‘hippies’ protesting the war.
Doctors’ wives were opposed to it, too.
