Cynthia, 82, peacefully passed away on Sunday morning, September 22, surrounded by her loved ones. She was fortunate to live an active & vital life up until two months ago when her breast cancer reoccurred. Her famous vivacious smile and quick wit was with her even through her final hours.

An only child, Cynthia was born & raised in Kansas City, Mo. She was a "Chi Omega" girl and earned her BA from Kansas State University. She met her future husband, Bob, on a blind date in the rumble seat of a 1934 Plymouth. They were married in '51 right before Bob was shipped off to the Korean War. Cynthia came out to La Jolla to live with her aunts & grandmother. When Bob returned, they had fallen in love with San Diego, never to leave again outside of their extensive travels. Once children came into the picture, Cynthia's goal was achieved to stay home and be the homemaker.

Their passions together were family, travel, Challenge level square dancing, scuba & snorkeling, forty years of annual escapes to Paki Maui, bridge with friends, church potlucks, and camping (tent, then trailer and finally RVing during the last three decades). After the death of their son, Dale, in '64, Cynthia's faith was strengthened and grew through Bible studies, prayer groups & church retreats. She loved games, sewing, cooking, swimming & entertaining.

Cynthia loved social interaction. She constantly welcomed newcomers. She had a multitude of friends from many circles: Delta Divers, Submariners, Point Loma Presbyterian, and then downtown at First Pres. She was a Deacon, an Elder, a member of Group Nine, Voyagers, Thursday Morning Bible Study, Early Birds, prayer chains, Forest Home Auxiliary, Home Bible Study & Children's Home Society, and Las Companeras. Their square dance and RV groups included North County Squares, P.A.C.E., Jewel's Squares, Lazy Daze, & Trailblazers.

Cynthia was known for her big heart and even bigger smile. She touched so many lives. She will be sorely missed but never forgotten.

Cynthia was the light of Bob's life, center of his world for their 62 years of marriage together. Together they loved sharing in the lives of their three children, Diana (& Gary) Whitney, Rob (& Cathi) Casebolt, and Valerie (& Pål) Berg, eight grandchildren, Scott, Heather, Tyson, Robert, Dylan, Erik, Trond & Lars, and three great-grandchildren, Elias, Juliana & Emilia.

A Celebration of Life will be held on Wed. Oct. 2nd at 2:00pm at the First Presbyterian Church, downtown, 320 Date St, SD, 92101.

In lieu of flowers, Cynthia requested donations be given to their church, First Presbyterian.
