Cynthia Deloris Taylor, or Cynthy, as she was affectionately known, was a smart, intelligent and accomplished woman. Kind and giving in her ways, she was trustworthy and loyal. Tough, yet understanding and nurturing. Ms. Taylor was of excellent character, moving through life with great integrity that earned her the respect of all who knew her. She was also meticulous, disciplined, and orderly in virtually everything she undertook. An over-achiever about life, she was always at the ready, prepared to take on challenges.

Cynthia was born on July 19, 1951 at John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth, Texas to Clyde David and Geneva Cooks. She was brought up to be self-confident, honest and virtuous. These were traits that would serve her well throughout her life.

Growing up in the Cooks household with 5 siblings was a joy. There were lots of good times and unforgettable memories made. She had Clyde David, Dale (deceased), Karen, Christopher and Mitzi around to fill her early days with laughter. Cynthia was constantly involved in activities with her brothers and sisters.

As a young child, Cynthia was a strong presence and personality. She moved through life unapologetically and confidently, with a sense of assuredness and pride. Cynthia developed a variety of interests, and the things she enjoyed doing she did well. She was always curious about the world around her and was often eager to explore it. She had a great appetite for learning, which would remain throughout her life. Cynthia took part in cheerleading but also enjoyed sewing, softball and going to the library. However, what Cynthia enjoyed most was simply playing and spending time with her many friends and family.

As a graduate of P. L. Dunbar High School in 1969, she was a very logical person who, among many things, enjoyed learning about factual information. Using her exceptional memory, she was able to learn much through observation. Cynthia always seemed to have a command of the facts and through critical thinking it appeared as though she could easily master any problem that might be presented to her.

College life brought new opportunities and Cynthia took to them well. Being a critical thinker who always remained intellectually engaged, Cynthia was able to focus on the task at hand in order to complete her class work. She seemed to thrive in the college environment. Cynthia was able to comprehend the material and retain information in a way that impressed her fellow classmates. She attended Brantley-Draughon Business College and earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration. She also pursued graduate school, earning her Masters in Accounting at Texas Weslyan University.

Always considered to be loyal and trustworthy, Cynthia was fortunate to have acquaintances and very close friends during her life. With a sharp sense of discernment Cynthia was able to see beneath the surface to develop meaningful, lasting relationships and became a true confidant to those who knew her. She was committed to her friends and valued the trust she placed in them. It was not uncommon for Cynthia to go above and beyond for others, always giving of her time and resources. Friends frequently sought out her advice because of her ability to come up with practical solutions to any type of dilemma. While growing up, her best friend was Grace Bluitt. Later in life, she became friends with Loretta Johnson and Doris Butler.

Cynthia was an excellent mother to Tricia and Merric. Firm yet fair, She had an undying love and devotion to them. Cynthia was also a walking schedule, always seeming to know what everyone in the family needed to do, where they needed to be and when they needed to be there. Additionally, Cynthia was blessed with grandkids and a great-granddaughter.
Ms. Taylor was deeply devoted to her career. She enjoyed dealing with concrete ideas while also applying flexible thinking to situations that made her an excellent problem-solver. Always able to attend to the task at hand, Cynthia was superb at meeting deadlines. She was an excellent worker with an acute attention to detail, allowing her to exceed expectations. Her primary occupation was Payroll Clerk and Postal Supervisor. She was employed for FAA, GSA, The United States Postal Service, as a private tutor, and a substitute teacher for Fort Worth ISD. Cynthia was known to work tirelessly as a team player, doing what was necessary in order to get the job done.

Cynthia liked to experience things first-hand as well as learn about them. This trait carried over into her hobbies, where she was very methodical in how she organized her activities and categorized things. Her favorite pursuits were knitting, sewing, making floral arrangements and even wedding coordinating. She was content to enjoy her hobbies alone but often times shared her interests, skills and gifts with others.

Cynthia found pleasure in sports. Equally athletic as she was scholarly, Ms. Taylor excelled in physical activities. In her college years, Cynthia was known to spend her time playing golf, volleyball, tennis and swimming. Recreational sports included softball and bowling.

Cynthia was a woman who was dedicated and devoted to her faith. She was a member of Edgewood Terrace Congregation of Jehovah’s Witnesses. She was a sympathetic woman who valued her beliefs and was willing to work tirelessly for them.

When Cynthia’s retirement finally arrived in 2009 from the US Postal Service, she was well prepared. She always placed value in what was logical and in the things she knew, so she was very confident in her decisions. She had begun the process early and had her retirement all laid out well in advance. Even in retirement, Cynthia continued to stay in touch with her colleagues and friends while making plenty of new acquaintances. She was active in her new community and felt fulfilled.

Services will be held at Moore & Sons Funeral Home, Bowen Rd in Arlington, TX. In keeping with her wishes, Cynthia was cremated.

To be in the presence of Cynthy, was to know love. Love was a guiding principle in her life. Even if you never heard her say it, you experienced it in everything she did. You could hear love in her laughter, feel love in her sternness, and see it in her forgiveness. It was in her smile and her lessons. In her guidance and her support. In her giving and her withholding. In her expectations and her achievements. It is through love that she lived and through love that her legacy will live on.
