Dorothea Jo (Price) Cundiff left this earth holding the hand of Jesus May 7, 2012 at Autumnwood Nursing Home in McBain, Ml surrounded by her family. Dorothea was born June 26, 1931 to Philip Brooks and Lela (Barnett) Price, Sr. in Brevard, NC.
She grew up in North Carolina, received her R.N. degree there and worked for Olin. She later transferred to the Olin facility in Covington, IN, where she met her husband, Karl Cundiff. They were married March 19, 1960. Dot, as she was known to most was a member of Benson Chapel United Methodist Church. There she had spent time teaching Sunday School, VBS, as well as serving as the church's financial secretary for many years. One of her greatest joys had been working on the Benson Broadcast, a monthly church newsletter.
She and Karl had one son, Allan Cundiff, (wife Robin). They have four children, who have brought years of enjoyment to Dot. She loved spending time with them and the great grandchildren. Dot treasured family, from her husband and all of his family, their son and his family, to her siblings and all of their families. She enjoyed spending quiet time at home with her loved ones, and taking trips to visit others not so near. She is survived by her son, Allan (Robin) Cundiff of Cadillac, MI, her grandchildren, Matthew (Renee) LaMore of Crown Point, IN, Christopher Cundiff, of Roseville, MI, Joshua (Ashley) Cundiff of Lake City, MI, Virginia Cundiff of Cadillac, MI, as well as five great grandchildren: Kaden, Bryant, MaKenzie, Justin, and Brian. Also surviving are 4 sister-in-laws, Ruby Holmes, Phyllis Hutchison, Ann Price, Sheila Cundiff and 1 brother-in-law, Milo Bever. Many very special nieces & nephews, as well as great nieces & nephews also survive. She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband Karl, her two sisters, Lois Peterson & Becky Bever, and her brother Phillip Price, Jr.
Dot spent many full and wonderful years in Covington, IN. She had also returned to North Carolina for a short while with family there before returning to Indiana and then to Michigan with her son, Allan. She remained with him & his family until her health deteriorated to the point of needing additional assistance with her needs. She had been at Autumnwood for a little over 2 years and was loved dearly by everyone there.
