Cynthia was a faithful member of the Faith Community Church of God in Huntington; and a lifetime member of the V.F.W. post 2689 of Huntington.
Cynthia had a bigger than life personality, she was outgoing, feisty, ornery, and always had a good sense of humor. She was an avid crafter, the master of monster cookies and enjoyed making plates of Christmas goodies to share with others. Cynthia’s favorite places to go included her countless trips to craft stores. She always looked forward to autumn and the changing of the leaves. Cynthia absolutely loved to go camping with friends and family. Her main passion was her grandchildren and the time she spent with them. Cynthia was devoted to her family and a true matriarch.
