It is with great sadness and broken hearts that we announce the passing of Doreen Beatrice Cunningham, 68, of Liverpool, formerly of Milton. She passed away suddenly and peacefully on Tuesday February 23, 2016 at Queens General Hospital in Liverpool with family at her side.
Born January 19, 1948 on Tupper Street in Milton at the home of her grandparents, she was the daughter of the late Earl Robert McDonald (1973) and Doris Blanche (Berriman) Taillon (1988).
As a young woman, she was employed at the Mersey Hotel and the Radio Café, both in Liverpool. Later, she was custodian at the Milton Baptist Church. Doreen loved life and loved to laugh. She loved to make others laugh. She enjoyed herself wherever she went and whatever she did. She was the life of any party. She loved dancing and would be the first one on the dance floor and the last one to sit down. She was truly one of a kind. She played softball in the 1960s until the 1980s. In the 1970s and 1980s, she played volleyball and bowling and she enjoyed camping at Molega Lake Campground and later at Hibernia. During the last years she enjoyed playing darts at the Liverpool Legion. She also loved going Bingo, usually with her son, Tim, who was her bingo buddy for Monday night Bingo in Milton.
She was never one for travelling but had always wanted to go to Prince Edward Island. In May 2015 she fulfilled that dream. When we crossed the Confederation Bridge and arrived at PEI, she let a few yells out to let everyone know Doreen had arrived. It was an awesome weekend. Though we knew she was a very strong woman, during the last fifteen months she proved that she had more strength and courage than we could ever imagine. Her sense of humor never stopped, even on days that were more than challenging. For 47 years, she was a faithful and hard working member of the Ladies Auxiliary, Royal Canadian Legion, Mersey Branch #38 in Liverpool. She was also a former member of the Queens County CB Club, the Ladies Auxiliary of the Milton Canoe and Camera Club and NS Guides Association.
She is survived by her dedicated husband of nearly 47 years, Donald, of Liverpool who always called her “Maude”, also survived by her loving son, Tim McDonald of Halifax. Together they worked hard to make sure all of her needs were taken care during the past months. She is also survived by her daughter, Tina (Anthony) Corkum of Brooklyn. She loved being “Nanny Doreen” to her grandsons, Andrew and Thomas Corkum of Brooklyn, who she adored. She is also survived by her sister Sherri (Ted) Roy of Stellarton, NS, who was the most caring and helpful sister anyone could have. Other special people in her life were Kevin Whynot of Halifax, who she always said was her “adopted son”. They had a friendship for over 40 years. For the last 40 years she filled in as “Nanny” to Tracy Whynot of Beech Hill. Her brother in law, Earl West of Port Hawkesbury and sister in law Marie Hubley of Liverpool, also survive, as well as many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
Besides her parents, she was predeceased by her stepfather Victor Gerhardt (2005), who was “dad” since she was about 2 years old. She was also predeceased by her stepfather Ken Taillon (2000); sister Barbara West (2005); brother Robert McDonald (2001) and infant brother Duncan Edward McDonald (1936); her infant daughter Theresa Lynn Cunningham (1975) and infant sons Donald Keith Cunningham Jr (1969) and Tony William Cunningham (1980), nephews, Pat West (2003), Robert D. E. McDonald (1971) and niece Tracy McDonald (1973). She also lost many close friends over the years, in particular her special friends, April Grant (2005) and Doris Conrad (2013), who she missed terribly and mentioned often.
Doreen loved animals and we often commented that the stray cats in our neighborhood were the healthiest of any because of the love and care she gave. Because of her love of pets, donations in her memory may be made to the Queens SPCA Box 2012 Liverpool, Nova Scotia BOT 1KO
Cremation has taken place under the direction of Chandlers’ Funeral Home, Liverpool, where visitation will be held Sunday February 28, 2016 at 7 p.m. and a celebration of life will be held Monday February 29, 2016 at 11:00 a.m. Rev. Judy Cross officiating. Burial will be at a later date in Milton Community Cemetery. Online condolences may be made to www.chandlersfuneral.com

What an amazing woman!!
I had the great privilege of looking after Doreen many times during her last few visits to Queen’s General. No matter how ill she was she always tried to look on the bright side. She always made sure we nurses left laughing or smiling with her special brand of humor. She was blessed with one of the most loving, devoted and tireless family. She lived life “large and in charge” to say the least and will be missed by so many. Donald, Tim, Tina…..remember that wonderful devilish grin and that big belly laugh, I know I will.
my deepest sympathy to the family
So loved your mom….everything that was said in her obituary was so true….Doreen so love life….and was the life of any gathering….
The world was a better place because of her….
Always will be remembered by those that had the pleasure of knowing her…

Viv Croft ( Whynot)
Tim, Donnie and Tina
So sorry for your loss. Yep she was sure a one of a kind and one to not be reckoned with that’s for sure. Lots of memories floating around my head especially in our bowling, baseball and volleyball days. As a kid we learned quick not to disrespect her and if we did well lets just say it might not be that day but it could be days or months she would get us when we least expected it.
She was a kid at heart and when winter came along she would go out coasting on the road with us. I remember one night momma thought it was Maude standing in the road and chucked her in the snow bank, it wasn’t Maude it was Audrey. Oh the good old days I will remember forever…….I will miss our chats.
Tim, Tina and Donnie lean on your friends and family to get you through this tough time.
RIP Maude…..till we meet again
Steven & Brenda Kennedy
Dear family …..all I can say to you is that this lady was one of God’s special gifts from Heaven.Doreen will be fondly remembered by everyone who has had the pleasure of knowing her, I know I will. This awesome lady always had a laugh on her face and something funny to say. Our small community has lost one of our prominent citizens and it will be a hard task for anyone to try and fill her shoes. Rest in peace you sweet, funny, honourable, adorable lady , may God bless all the family grieving the loss of this wonderful lady.
Yvonne McNamara & Brian Muise

Tim, Tina and Donnie, it is so difficult to say good bye to such a special lady who was adored by many people. She made herself known and there is not one person that ever had anything bad to say about her. Doreen was one of a kind and a very special lady. She had a big heart and her laugh was just as big, I will miss her so much, so don’t say good bye to her, remember her and until we all meet again, rest peacefully beautiful lady.
Sorry to hear about the passing of your mother. She will be remembered by many. I met her in the Queen’s county CB club. Treasure your memory’s.

Dear Timmy and family:
Doreen was one of a kind! If she was in a room, you would know it.
I will always remember spending summers with the Wests in the 1970s,
and Timmy and Doreen would come over, and the volume always went
up a notch. She made Peter West’s wedding reception like a wild party.
We will miss her dearly and our thoughts and prayers are with you.

Tim and family,
So sorry to hear of Doreen’s passing. Always remember the days of outdoor dances at the tennis court. A long time ago. Always happy even back then. I know you and she had a respect, love and support for each other. Please accept my sympathy.
Thinking of you.

Tim, I can’t say I knew your Mum well, but I always enjoyed when she would come into the physio dept at QGH with her larger than life personality and humour. She will be missed by everyone who met her.
You sure do have a Beautiful collection of Family Pictures and I enjoyed looking @ them . You are right Tim, your mom was one of a kind . In most of those pictures she was smiling or laughing …laughing I Believe was her Trademark for she could make anyone laugh @ any given time . You clearly must have have some Wonderful memories of her . She was lucky to have a son like you . For you showed your mom how much you Loved her . If only more sons would do the same . Do not wish things could have been different nor have any regrets fore I don’t think she would want that. Time will heal Tim , hang in there <3
