Cynnie was dedicated to her spiritual growth and was a 20 year member of Community Bible Study of Westport.

Her interest in education had many facets—she served as president of the Roger Ludlowe Parents Club and was a past member of the board of directors at the Mercy Learning Center.
Cynnie and Randy were ardent fans of UCONN women’s basketball and always made plans to cheer on the Huskies. They enjoyed golfing at Brooklawn Country Club and visiting with friends on a sunny day at the Fairfield Beach Club. Cynnie was an avid bridge player, book club enthusiast, loved a good creative project and never refused a sweet treat.
Cynnie was a dedicated mother of four daughters, and their spouses, Pamela Koss (Jud) of Southport, CT, Patti Gormley (Larry) of Rye, NH, Jamie Reynolds (Stephen) of Amelia Island, FL, and Jenny Fahrman (Keith) of Long Valley, NJ. She adored her 14 grandchildren and three great grandchildren, she always made time to learn more about what they were doing and what made them tick.
