Cynthia Granger, a devoted wife, loving mother, and grandmother, passed away on August 19, 2023, in Houston, TX. She was born on February 14, 1956, in Louisiana. Cynthia's legacy is one that will forever be cherished by her family and friends.

Cynthia's career at the Navy Exchange spanned three decades, during which she made a significant impact on the lives of those around her. Her dedication and hard work were admired by her colleagues and superiors alike. She approached every task with unwavering commitment and professionalism.  She was also a dedicated member of St. Ann’s Catholic Church in Lizana, MS.

Outside of her career, Cynthia had a wide range of interests and hobbies. She was particularly skilled in making wreaths, creating beautiful pieces that brought joy to those who received them. Her talents extended to the kitchen as well, where she excelled in cooking and baking delicious meals and treats. However, above all else, Cynthia's greatest joy came from spending time with her children, grandchildren, and numerous friends.

Cynthia's warm and loving personality endeared her to everyone she met. She embodied the virtues described in Proverbs 31:28-29: "Her children rise her up and call her blessed; her husband also praises her: many women have done excellently, but you surpass them all." Her love and care for her family were unparalleled, leaving an indelible mark on their lives.

Cynthia is survived by her beloved husband of 39 years, James Granger. Together they built a life filled with love and shared countless precious moments. Cynthia's memory will forever live on through their cherished memories. She is also survived by her children, Stephanie Crader, Russell Crader, Trina Marshall (Tommy), and Patsy Granger.  She was a doting grandmother to Stephon Stringer (Nicole), Alex Marshall, Hannah Lavergne, Abel Granger. and KK Crader. Cynthia found immense delight in watching them grow and succeed in their endeavors. She was also a great-grandmother to Zackery Stringer, Elaina Stringer, and Jake Stringer, all of whom brought tremendous happiness into her life; and her loving brother, Richard Wells, Jr.

In this time of mourning, Cynthia's family takes solace in knowing that she is now reunited with her parents Richard Wells Sr. and Helen Wells, as well as her sister Donna Bond.

In lieu of flowers, the family request donations be made in her honor to St. Jude Children's Hospital.
