Cynthia was born in Grand Falls, Newfoundland on May 4, 1949 and moved with her family to Duncan, British Columbia in 1965. She completed Grade 13 at Cowichan Senior Secondary School in Duncan and Graduated from St. Joseph’s Nursing School as a Registered Nurse, working at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Victoria, Victoria General Hospital in Victoria, and Cowichan District Hospital in Duncan.
Cynthia loved her career as a Nurse where she helped a myriad of citizens as well as cared for her Mother and Father who were both blessed to die at home under Cynthia’s tender loving care. All of her family has been blessed by her nursing skills and even after her retirement in 2007, her family continued to receive advisement and blessings from her vast skills in the medical profession.
Cynthia’s greatest quality in her life was her great love for animals. She loved to sit at her window and watch the birds and squirrels who frequented her back yard daily and the hummingbirds who visited the many feeders around her house.
The loves of her life where her dogs and cats, namely: Oakley, Heidi, Piper, Morgan and Gizmo (Gizzy). Every day Cynthia would take her dogs to Rotary Park by the Cowichan River and she always brought a bag of Grade A Roast Beef cooked to Medium Rare and cut up into half inch cubes for any and all dogs at the Park whose owners’ would allow her to treat.
The dogs were so familiar with her that they recognized her from long distances and would run at full speed to great her and receive their treat. It was a joy for the dogs as well as Cynthia’s daily delight. Even after Cynthia’s pets passed away, she continued to walk the paths with her treats for all the dogs.
This she did up until her health would no longer allow her to do so, but rest assured, her heart was then and ever will be at Rotary Park with her doggy pals and their owners. She loved them all with all her heart. Cynthia will be sorely missed by them all.
By Cynthia’s request, there will not be a memorial, and flowers are gratefully declined. Anyone wishing to make a donation in Cynthia’s memory may do so to the Cowichan District Hospital or the local SPCA.
