From Home Furnishing Business
Founding WithIt Member Dies from Flu Complications
Kathi Cunningham, a founding member of the WithIt organization and longtime furniture industry sales executive, passed away Feb. 6 from complications resulting from the flu.
Cunningham served on the founding advisory committee, the 2002-2003 Board of Directors and is one of the original WithIt Ambassadors.

Her early experiences as a retailer in her family business provided unique insight into the challenges of retailers and sales associates and she freely offered her knowledge and advice. She was also part of the Hospitality Committee for many Withit Professional conferences.
Kathi was most recently senior regional sales manager at Classic Home Furnishings. Prior to that she was a senior account rep for Four Hands for 10 years.
Condolences can be mailed to her partner Marcia Shein, her parents Bob and Ann Cunningham and brother Robert Cunningham in care of the Bill Head Funeral Home
