Services set to remember Roy and Donna Cunniff


The Cunniff family will gather with family and friends to remember and celebrate the lives of Roy and Donna at 11:30 a.m. Saturday, April 23, at St. Paul’s United Methodist Church, 225 W. Griggs Ave. A casual reception will follow at the church. The service will be livestreamed via the St. Paul’s UMC Las Cruces NM YouTube channel. Roy and Donna Cunniff were married for more than 59 years. They departed this world within three days of each other in February 2022, the Cunniff family said. They are survived by their three children, sons Ross and David and daughter Danielle; three grandchildren; Shanley, Kelsey and Kira and two great-grandchildren; Auriel and Lydia, as well as a large extended family of siblings, nieces and nephews. The family would like to thank the staff of Mesilla Valley Hospice, who helped provide them both with peace and comfort in their last days. In lieu of flowers, the family asks for donations to Disabled American Veterans and/or the Friends of the Thomas Branigan Memorial Library.
