Mrs. Stevie Cunha, age 70, of Townsend, DE, passed away peacefully on October 22, 2013.
Born in Leesburg, Florida on July 1, 1943, she was the daughter of the late Jack Irwin and Louise Huffman Irwin. Mrs. Cunha worked for a time at the Delaware State College and then went on to make her career as a registered nurse for Astra Zeneca, retiring after 15 years of dedicated service.
A loving wife, mother, grandmother, and mother figure to many, she was beloved by all she met. Her home was always open to those in need. A lover of animals, she cared for them and none that came to her attention went hungry or without a home. Above all else, she loved and adored her children and grandchildren and was happiest in their company.
Mrs. Cunha is survived by her beloved husband, Joseph A. Cunha; children, Lisa Karbhari and husband, Vistasp of Arlington, TX and Joseph A. Cunha, Jr. and wife, Holly of Townsend, DE; sister, Sandra Jasmanki of Leesburg, FL; and 3 grandchildren, Sydnee, Riley, and Zachary Cunha.

In lieu of flowers the family suggests contributions be sent to the Delaware Humane Association, 701 A Street, Wilmington, DE 19801.
