Linda Moreland Cunningham

July 25, 1943 - December 17, 2018

Linda Marie Moreland (Kesner) (Sheehan) Cunningham of Romney died peacefully on Monday, December 17, 2018 at Devlin Manor in Cumberland.  She was 75.

Linda is the daughter of the late Kenneth Moreland and Maybelle Lewis Moreland Warnick.  She is also predeceased by her sister, Sandra Moreland; her daughter, Brenda Lee Kesner and (2) grandsons; J.D. Kesner and Jerimiah T. Sheehan.

She is survived by (6) sons; Richard Kesner of Augusta, WV, K. Roger Kesner of Augusta, WV, Curtis “Butch” Sheehan of Inwood, WV, Rodney Lambert of PA, Patrick Sheehan of Land O Lakes, FL and Michael Sheehan of Ft. Ashby, WV.  She is also survived by numerous grandchildren, great grandchildren and a world of friends.

Linda grew up in Springfield on the family farm.  As a child, there are warm memories of her going with her parents to Bluegrass events where she came to love music and singing.  As a young teenager, life was faced with many challenges at home and she left and was married before her 16th birthday.  From then on, Linda’s life was about work, raising kids and finding time to sing and entertain.  She was a member of the Red Hat Society and wherever life took her, she would always include music and singing into the equation.  Linda was very much a realist, and in her memoirs she directly recalls what she did right and what she did wrong.  Nothing is sugar coated.  Still, she will be remembered as one who brightened a room when she entered and one who had a wonderful sense of humor and truly cared about people.

Friends will be received on Friday, December 21, 2018 from 5PM to 7PM at Shaffer Funeral Home in Romney where funeral services will be held on Saturday, December 22, at 11AM.  Interment to follow at Wesley Chapel in Points, WV.

Inquiries may be directed to Shaffer Funeral Home, 304-822-3511.
