Sally J. (Myers) Cuneo
ALEXANDRIA – Sally J. (Myers) Cuneo, 88, met her Savior face to face on Tuesday, Aug. 9, 2022, surrounded by her family, from Northview Health and Living in Anderson following an extended illness.
She was born on Dec. 24, 1933, in Anderson to William and Mildred (Briscoe) Myers and has lived in Alexandria since 1964.
Sally was a graduate of Anderson High School-Class of 1951. She had worked briefly for Delco-Remy, as a ward clerk at St. John’s Hospital, for the former Alexandria Glove Corporation and in the office of Cuneo Insurance.
She was a member of the former Alexandria First United Methodist Church and more recently a member of the Alexandria Church of the Nazarene and served on the church’s missions council. She was a former member of the Alexandria Lady Elks and the Kappa Delta Phi sorority.
Sally had participated in the community wide canvas for the Alexandria Community Center. Sally loved to have fun, shop, eat out and was an avid card player. She will be fondly remembered for her seasonal holiday display figures on the screened in corner porch of her home. Sally devoted herself to her family and was the #1 fan of her “grands” and “greats.”

Harrison St., with Pastor Aaron Chester officiating. Interment will follow in Anderson Memorial Park. The Cuneo family will receive friends after noon on Saturday in the church prior to the service.
