Cynthia was a native of Biloxi, Ms. She was a lifelong caregiver. She was a gospel recording artist and song writer. She was a member of Calvary Pentecostal Church.
Cynthia spent her life in church ministry. She could always be found working around the church from leading worship music to making potato salad.
