Cynthia Thompson Obituary

On Saturday, February 11th 2023, Cynthia Jeter-Thompson passed away at age 68. Cynthia attended Wenonah High School, and later, earned an Associates Degree from Lawson State Community College.

Cynthia was a servant. Her love language was service, and all those who knew her felt it. She worked many jobs over the years, but perhaps most notably she served as a Family Care Specialist at the Ronald McDonald House for ten years. In that position Cynthia provided crucial care for hundreds of families who were going through the most difficult of times. Cynthia shared in their struggles, offering wisdom and help wherever she could to make their stay bearable.

That’s how Cynthia was - she put others before herself. By those in her immediate family she will be best remembered as a loving mother, grandmother, and sister. She did everything in her power to raise her sons into capable men, and she did an admirable job. There was no sacrifice she was unwilling to make, and nary a complaint passed from her lips. She had a quiet air of dignity rarely seen.

Cynthia was a lover of gardening, reading, and music. Her morning routine was a hot cup of coffee and a good book amongst her garden. She liked thrillers and literary fiction best. Her love of reading is carried by her sons. So is the ever-present coffee mug.

In her later years Cynthia showered her love on her grandchildren, Olivia and Raegan. She spoke of them in the highest praise to all her friends and family and never hesitated to speak and play with them. Their time together was cherished by all who were there, and will be remembered fondly.

Cynthia is survived by her son and daughter-in-law David-Paul Thompson and Angela Thompson, her grandchildren Olivia and Raegan Thompson, and son Joseph Thompson. She is also survived by her siblings William Jeter Jr and his wife Yvonne Jeter, Victor Jeter, Valerie and David Campbell, Bridgette Jeter, and five nieces.
