Cynthia was employed as a Quality Inspector at Santee Prints for over 20 plus years in Sumter, SC. She was later employed at Blue Cross and Blue Shield as a Data Prep Technician, where she took an early retirement when her health began to fail. After her retirement, her greatest joy was babysitting her grandchild, Ty’Asia Alise Nevaeh Coakley who lives in the home.
She was a lifelong diehard fan of the Miami Dolphins. She absolutely loved shopping online, and vacationing in Florida with her family. Those who knew her will tell you her family was very important to her, and she went above and beyond to take care of them. She enjoyed Tyrone’s cooking, talking to Jasmine, listening to Iesha, praising Shaniqua’s creativity, ordering her daughter-in-law Victoria around, proud of her brother, TC, and motivated by her sister-in-law, Wanda.
