Obituary for Cynthia L. (Thomas) Jefferson

Cynthia L. (Thomas) Jefferson, 51, of Mercersburg, PA passed away unexpectedly Sunday morning, May 9, 2021 in the emergency room of Chambersburg Hospital. Born March 30, 1970 in Chambersburg, she was a daughter of Melvin and Linda Robinson Thomas of Chambersburg. She was a 1988 graduate of the James Buchanan High School and went on to earn a Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing from Shepherd University. A Registered Nurse, she had worked at both Chambersburg and Waynesboro Hospitals early in her career and was currently employed at the Parkway Surgery Center in Hagerstown, MD where she had worked since July of 2006. She treasured time spent with her family and friends. Cynthia loved shopping; spending time reading on the beach; enjoyed most any type of fitness activity; a glass of good wine; and spending time on the boat. She loved to travel and especially enjoyed trips to Barbados and Mexico. She had a special place in her heart for Old English Sheep dogs and liked to spend time walking Benson.

Cindy was my childhood idol, my honorary big sister. I loved everything about her. She undoubtably instilled her love of shopping in me. I’ve shopped her closet more times than I can remember. It seems like yesterday I was on the sidelines watching her cheer (pretending I was her). My fondest childhood memories are playing Yahtzee with her, making seafood nachos, riding in her CRX, and watching her do her hair :) As an adult I had the pleasure of enjoying time with her, Eddie, and the girls at the pool, celebrating milestones, attending many concerts, and making limo and bus rides an unforgettable experience. Our love of shopping allowed us to see each other regularly at TJ Maxx, even when our otherwise busy lives didn’t allow as many frequent get-togethers as we would have liked. My deepest, most heart-felt condolences to Eddie, Lily, Reece, and the rest her amazing family and friends. I am so sorry for your loss. I love you, Cindy. ~Tara
