She was a graduate of Central High School in Pontiac, Michigan.  For twenty four years Cynthia worked as a truck driver for Swift Transportation retiring twelve years ago for health reasons.

Playing computer games was a favorite pastime, especially World of Warcraft; she enjoyed crocheting and sewing and loved taking her little dogs in the truck.  Her dog, Miss Molly, will now live with her sister Terrie.
