Cynthia received her Associate in Applied Science degree in Nursing from the State University of New York at Morrisville in 1977 followed by a very distinguished nursing career spanning 36 years. Her career focus was primarily in Women’s Health Services, including, OB/GYN, Breast Cancer, and Infertility. 


Cynthia passed away peacefully after a 3-year courageous battle with metastatic breast cancer. She will be remembered for many things but mostly for her compassion, her faith, and her unprecedented devotion to her family.


In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations be made in Cynthia’s name to the Babylon Breast Cancer Coalition.
