Cynthia had many jobs around Rock Springs. She worked at Flying J as well as JB's Big Boy, giving great food service to many of Rock Springs residents. She was an amazing youth supporter and guide for the Rock Springs Youth Home. Her most recent and final job was as the manager of Mobile Stalls/Corrals (Gosar’s Unlimited) for over the past decade.

Cynthia was a long time Rock Springs resident who made countless connections and helped a magnitude of people over the years. She was firm, but also had a heart of gold. She was selfless with the love she gave to those closest to her.

Cynthia's greatest love in life was her family. Spending time with her grandson Cylas gave her the greatest joys and uplifting rewards that life can offer. She fought and lived each day so she could spend every moment she could with him.

She also enjoyed crocheting, gambling, playing cards/dice, road trips to visit family, long conversation, rock hunting, and anything that brought her family together.
