Cynthia Champa

7 March, 193412 September, 2021

Cynthia (Brunette) Champa, age 87 passed away on Sunday, September 12, 2021 at the Brudnick Center for Living surrounded by her loving family. She was the wife of the late Richard Champa with whom she shared 44 years of marriage. Born in Brookline, MA to Arthur and Dorothy Brunette she moved to Lynn as a child when her father was hired by GE. She left her job at GE to devote her life to raising her children and later worked for the Lynn Sunday Post Newspaper.

Cindy loved chocolate of most kinds and because of her allergies would frequently eat more Ricola cough drops than one thought humanly possible. She loved and supported her children and would never miss any of their sports games. She had eclectic musical taste and enjoyed many artists from Frank Sinatra to Earth Wind and Fire. Most importantly she was a great mother and a rock of stability in her family. She always put her children first and would often sacrifice her needs for theirs. Her enduring faith in God led her to make her place in the world a little better.

Cynthia is survived by her loving children David and Doug Champa of Lynn, Dana Champa and his wife Peg of Coral Springs, FL and Robin Champa of Salem and her cherished grandchildren Andy, Kylie and Christopher Champa and her sister in law Diane Fay.

To David, Dana, Robin, and Doug.
Sorry to hear that your mom passed away. I remember her faithfulness to you all and the church.
I would visit her sometimes at her home and enjoyed the conversations we would have as I did minor jobs for her.
She will be missed.
I hope you take comfort in knowing that she is with the Lord.

I remember so many wonderful things about my Aunt Cindy. She was kind, generous and believed in Jesus with all her being. She loved the beach, dessert, (especially chocolate), walking, going to church, a good party, her beloved grandchildren and especicially her own children. She had the most beautiful blue eyes and warm smile. I was ok with her calling me Stephie. Just her and my mom could do that.
I will miss her. She is in heaven now. I just know it.

I have many happy memories of Cindy…….our walks when she came to Florida to visit , her visits to my home, her excitement when my husband and I took her, along with my own mother, to see the Christmas Pageant in Ft. Lauderdale.
I remember her as being such a stylish dresser…always looking so “New England”……… preppy.
She loved her Byers Carolers and country decor ……
She was never at a loss for words and could easily hold a conversation with anyone!
Such a lovely lady…..she will be missed.
