Cynthia Eileen Morse ended her journey on earth on March 21, 2021 peacefully in Austin, Texas at the young age of 56.

Cynthia leaves behind the love of her life and husband of 35 years Roger Morse, and her beloved children Ashley, Ryan, and Amy of Austin, Texas.

She was born on January 20, 1965 in Marquette, Michigan to Leroy and Grace Sweeney. Being the child of her Air Force CMSgt Father, they moved to many places around the United States during her childhood, but Cynthia would always consider Plattsburgh, New York her hometown. She studied at the State University of New York Plattsburgh before meeting her husband, and ultimately settled in Texas upon their marriage and desire to start their family.

Cynthia’s pride and joy were her children, whom she dedicated her life to. She was an incredible Wife, Mom, Daughter, Sister, Aunt, Friend, and Sister in Faith. She was known to radiate light, happiness, and her faithful soul, and always had a welcoming heart to those around her.

Along with her husband and children, Cynthia is survived by her siblings Kathleen Williams (John), Jodi Sweeney, Karen Knight (Stephen), Michael Sweeney (Dana), Steven Sweeney, and John Sweeney (Jessica), Bobby Morse (Carmen), Gary Morse (Mirta), Karen Morse, and Kevin Morse (Kimberly), and many nieces and nephews.

Cynthia is preceded in death by her parents Leroy Sweeney and Grace (Veen) Sweeney. We will dearly miss Cynthia’s joy of music, travel, laughing at the silly things in life, and always taking one for the team. We love you so much.

Service will be held at Cook-Walden Forest Oaks Funeral Home and Memorial Park, 6300 W William Cannon Dr, Austin, TX on Saturday, April 10, 2021 at 2:00 PM. Please join us after the service for a Celebration of Cynthia’s Life Open House at the Morse Family home, 5511 Van Winkle Ln, Austin, TX.

She always encouraged me through every storm... she had a heart bigger than Texas.

Cynthia was a beautiful individual inside and out. Her countenance radiated love for her fellow humankind. We loved her and continue to love her.

I remember the first time I saw Cynthia and Roger together. It was at a large church event in the Chicago area. We were all quite young at the time and I cannot remember if it was shortly before or after their marriage. It was obvious that Cynthia and Roger were very much in love. I was so happy for them. Their union not only produced three beautiful children, their work together as a couple has been a blessing for numerous individuals and families. As the saying goes, "A match made in heaven."

My heart is heavy and truly sympathetic for Roger, Ashley, Ryan and Amy.
Cynthia was always a bright light in everything she did. Never one to overtly criticize but everyone knew exactly where she stood. I'm lucky to have known her.
She truly was an example of strength and faith.

A friend of mine has passed. Sad and startled like many others.
She was, in my heart, a special person.
Our friendship dates back over 30 years ago, with her and Roger.
We became friends back in the 80’s when I was in the Air Force, in Alexandria, Louisiana. Her mom and dad were stationed at Barksdale, in Shreveport. About 2 hours apart. Through contacts within our church group, we became acquainted and soon became friends.
It was also in this time, that again, through our church, I came to know the Morse family, and especially Roger. We became friends. We had great times together. A Joy to be at their wedding. We talked about that many times over the years.
We stayed in touch, yet as happens, life moves in different directions for each of us. Maybe the calls become more infrequent, but the bond was still there. When we spoke or saw each we caught right up, like it was yesterday!
We pray for God’s comfort and peace in this time.
We pray for the families, and we pray for the friends, and the lives that they have impacted over these many years.

We will miss you Cynthia.
