Cynthia lived a life full of humble respect and honed integrity. She brought curiosity and deep interest in others to the table and had a scholar’s love of diving deep into understanding the ways of the world, plants, people, food, places, and world events.

She had a deep commitment to the cooperative movements; having started 3 Community supported gardens with shareholders, and 2 cooperative bakeries.

She was generous with her time and her ability to fix just about anything.

The seeds she has planted will grow deep in the hearts and souls of so many who she has touched.
