Doreese Evelyn Hunt Cuff, the eldest daughter and first born of the late Wayman Hunt, Jr. and Tinola Mitchell Hunt, was born February 19, 1936 in Chester, Pa. Doreese entered into eternal rest on August 7, 2020. She was preceded in death by her sister, Marva Jean Hunt and her brothers, Lewis "Melvin" Hunt, Kenneth Wayman Hunt Sr., Douglass Hunt, Sr., Erwin William Hunt and a sister, Audrey Sweeper.
Doreese was educated in the Chester Public School System and graduated from Chester High School in the Class of 1954. After graduating High School, she attended Secretarial School in Philadelphia, PA. In 1956, Doreese married the love of her life, the late Leonard Thomas Cuff ("Joe"). They celebrated 59 years of marriage.
At an early age, Doreese accepted Christ as her personal Savior and was baptized at Bethany Baptist Church of Chester, Pennsylvania under the pastorate of Reverend Daniel A. Scott. Later in life, Reverend Scott united Doreese and Leonard in marriage. She was a former member of White Rock Christian Church under the pastorate of Reverend Edward C. Lilly and Providence Baptist Church of Chester, Pennsylvania under the pastorate of Reverend Frederick S. Randolph. Doreese later rejoined First African Baptist Church of Sharon Hill, Pennsylvania under the pastoral leadership of Reverend Dr. Richard A. Dent, where she was a member of the Hospitality Ministry.
Although one of Doreese's greatest unfulfilled desires was to attend college, she made certain her son Curtis, her brothers, sisters, nieces and nephews would have every opportunity to do so. Doreese was not only a great encourager, but gave financial support whenever needed. Doreese was unselfish, caring and loving to family and friends. Countless times you would here her say "I LOVE MY FAMILY!" Doreese was an exquisite goumet cook and an exceptional baker, candy, cookie, biscuit and delicious rolls maker. Everyone always saved room for the renowned cakes that she made for family gatherings and special celebrations. She also enjoyed knitting, crocheting, reading, writing, bowling, biking and camping events.
Doreese was employed by John Wanamakers in Philadelphia working in the bookstore. She was an avid reader and enjoyed sharing knowledge and social etiquette with family. Doreese was affectionaly given the nicknamed "Ms. Amy Vanderbilt." However, little did we know how helpful so much of her advice would be beneficial to us! Doreese was employed by the Glen Mill Schools for Boys. She later became Payroll Supervisor for The Rose Tree Media School District, retiring in 2002 after 33 years of service.
Doreese leaves to cherish her memory a son, Curtis Joseph Cuff (Denise); three grandaughters whom she adored dearly; Kennedi, Chloe and Parker Cuff; two brothers, Winfield Sr. (Yvonne) and Tyrone (Tamara) Hunt; one sister, Andrea Hunt McAllister (Rev.Dr.Melvin); four sisters-in-law, Elise Randolph Hunt, Virginia Holland Hunt, Delores Anderson Hunt and Shirley Goldsboro(Charles); godchildren, Ulana Rice and Kenneth D.
