Cynthia had an infectious laugh and smile. Cynthia leaves each and every one of us with memories in which none of us will forget. Cynthia enjoyed spending her time with family, making new friends - she always made friends in her places of work. Cynthia was a helper of her community, she loved to cook/cater for meetings or events in the community and helping her friends and family when they were in need. She was a lover of children, she often babysat for her close family and friends. Cynthia loved her food (especially cornbread from Montanas) and loved spending her free time gambling in the casinos in Manitoba or at Catsass or at Falcon Lake Hotel on the VLTs. Cynthia enjoyed her car rides, she spent a lot of time in her vehicle listening to music. There was never a dull moment with Cynge, she was often joking around with her friends and family and fellow coworkers. She will be greatly missed by all. 

The family would like to express their sincere gratitude and acknowledge; OPP Jeff Duggan, KCA, Kenora Paramedics, Penny & Rhonda Skead and family, Clarence White, Joyce White, Miranda Templeton, Heather Morton-Ricard, Rob Gardner and Laura Cripps.
