School in Kingston. After completing her education, she encountered the love
of her life Roland Munroe, who later became her husband. They commenced
their marriage at St. Andrews Scott Kirk in Kingston. The union produced
two beautiful children, Lynford and Sharon. During Cynthia’s career, she
worked at the Jamaica Shirt Factory as a Seamstress. She was passionate
about how she lived her life and who she devoted her time to. She loved her
family and provided loving care for her nieces and nephews in a special
way. She was a compassionate Aunt but was also known as the discipli
narian of the family. Cynthia understood the importance of training a child
in the way that they should grow, so many in the family would call upon
her to discipline the children when needed. Now as adults, they understand
and respect her for those times of correction.
In 1978, she migrated to Queens, New York where she lived with her daugh
ter. She furthered her education and became a Certified Home Health Aide.
This training allowed her to work for Social Concern Agency, caring for the
sick and elderly. During this timeframe, she was awarded Most Outstanding

a member of Ascension Peace Presbyterian Church. She was very active
in her church, where she served as an Usher and on the Hospitality Team.
Cynthia enjoyed feeding, serving and helping others. She also enjoyed
caring for some of her great grandchildren. She loved gardening all the
time and would plant seeds of various fruits and flowers. When they would
blossom or bare fruit she would share with family and friends. Over the
years her garden became a botanical beauty of which she was very proud.
Sadly, years later her health became a concern. She was placed in a nursing
home, due to the drastic decline in her health, which required professional
care, she was no longer able to be home. The nursing facilities became her
new home, until Sunday, June 26, 2022 when she succumb to her illness.
She lived a full life as a child of God. We will be comforted that she is with
her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
