The happiest days of my teaching career were when Cynthia served as a DE in our school! She was the kindest, gentlest person I have ever known. I loved her, her bright and hopeful spirit, and her selflessness! Rest in Peace, my friend!

I am so sorry for the passing of your loved one. I remember the first time I met Cynthia. I was secretary at The Phoenix School and she came in for a job interview. While she was waiting, we started talking and found out that we were both originally from the country, living not too many miles apart. We seemed to almost be friends already. As it turned out, she got the job and we remained friends through everything. It didn't take long to figure out how much she loved her family, always sharing a happy memory when she came to work in the morning. She brought me a doughnut or a breakfast sandwich almost everyday. She was such a kind and generous person, always fair to everyone she met. I will never forget the happy times with Cynthia and I hope she realizes just how much it meant to me.

Cynthia was my principal at the Brown School and was the most supportive principal of Reading Intervention I have ever met. She had a passion for struggling students and inspired me to be the best Reading Interventionist possible. I was very fond of her son Theo and gave him a box of Transformers. I considered her a friend and enjoyed her company at dinner and admired her dedication to the students, her support for teachers and it was a joy to have the opportunity to teach under such a respected educator. She will be missed by the entire Brown faculty, her friends, students whose lives she touched and especially her son Theo. My prayers are with her family and I will miss never having the opportunity to enjoy her lovely smile. She was a beautiful person both inside and out.

I met Cynthia at Central when she was our "highly skilled educator" from the State Department. We developed a wonderful friendship and would always room together at the Assistant Principal's conferences. She was such a wonderful caring and loving person and will be greatly missed! Rest in Peace Cynthia. God has another angel.

Cynthia was the most intelligent, compassionate, supportive and fair administrator I was fortunate enough to work with during my teaching career. As a disciplinarian for students, she was consistent and patient, directing them to make better choices; as a teacher, at heart, with high expectations, she recognized individual differences, and focused students to want more for themselves in the learning process. Cynthia "walked the talk" in her passionate, uncompromising drive to make certain "students come first." She lifted me up with her magical smile and endearing sense of humor; she was a true, and unfailing inspiration to me. Thank you, Cynthia!

Marsha and family - please accept my most sincere and heartfelt condolences. I've known Trudy as long as Marsha and I have been best friends. I have so many memories of her: from U.K., to us going by her house when we would go to Louisville, to her wedding, to her bringing Theo by to visit Mom and Daddy and so much more. Marsha, I saw how much you loved and admired her and I did the same. Heaven truly gained an angel. I love you so much and I am keeping the entire family lifted in prayer.
