Cynthia P. Bazzano

February 16, 1940November 3, 2021

Cynthia P. Bazzano, of Eastham, MA formally from South Windsor, CT passed away peacefully on Nov 3, 2021, surrounded by her children.

Cindy was born February 16, 1940 in Springfield, MA. She was the daughter of Enoch and Esther Pelton. She attended Ellsworth High School in South Windsor and graduated from Hartford Hospital School of Nursing. It was at Hartford Hospital that she met the love of her life, Tom, while caring for his sister. They were married May 18, 1963 for almost 50 years and spent most of their lives in South Windsor in a house designed and built by Tom. Many happy memories were made in that home with their five children. Cindy loved being a mom. Many hours were spent baking, cooking, and freezing fresh fruits and veggies from Tom’s garden. Home was truly where her heart was.

Later, Cindy had the opportunity to pursue her dream of higher education and received her Bachelor of Science degree in nursing at The University of Hartford. She then went back to work full time at Hartford Hospital. Her time as a nurse was very fulfilling as she was a very compassionate and caring person who loved helping people in their time of need.

After retirement in 1995, Cindy and Tom moved to Cape Cod to be closer to their children and help out with the family business, the Hole in One in Fairway and Eastham and Orleans.

Cindy enjoyed making customers happy. She loved pouring coffee and putting extra treats in customers’ bags. She would have lively chats with the locals each morning. She was most proud to work alongside her daughters and eventually her grandchildren. Cindy was also known for her generous deliveries of the day’s extras to various local establishments. A donut or muffin was never discarded on Cindy’s watch! She even recruited her son at times to drive her to her donut deliveries during inclement weather. In her retirement, Cindy spent many hours walking in the marsh with her children, grandchildren and dogs. She loved nature and particularly loved feeding the birds, ducks and turkeys that visited her yard daily.

Cindy considered herself lucky to have her entire family all living in the same town just minutes away. With such a large family there was always a reason to get together, celebrate and eat. Birthdays, anniversaries and holiday gatherings centered around food gave her the greatest joy. Cindy was most happy when she was home surrounded by her family and her beloved dogs.

Cindy is preceded in death by her beloved husband Tom and her brother Oliver Pelton. She leaved behind her devoted children, Kristina Bazzano, Erica Taber and husband Ken Taber, Jamie Wacht and husband Dan Wacht, Lori Field and husband Bob Field and son Brent Bazzano all of Eastham, MA; sister Karen Boucher also from Eastham, three sisters in law; Fran Lund and husband Peter of South Windsor, CT, Lucy Murkette of Vernon, CT and Carol Pelton of Harwich, MA; 8 grandchildren Jake Field, Jeb Field and wife Tori, Nick and Casey Taber, Sydney and Ethan Wacht, Taylor and Harrison Field and many nieces and nephews. Cindy was deeply loved and will be missed by all.

The Eastham Library staff, volunteers, and patrons send our heartfelt condolences. Cindy was a gracious patron and generous business owner who lit up the library every time she entered the building. The wonderful photo you've chosen of her says it all: That smile; the spontaneous, unaffected mannerisms--with a cup of coffee in hand--she's truly enjoying some lucky soul's company. We will miss her.

Cindy’s laughter and smile will be dearly missed. I work alongside her and her family and had the pleasure of experiencing her kindness to all. She would come in and take products to the local pantry or the local town offices, police or fire stations even her favorite stores. She didn’t need a reason be she just enjoyed doing it. She would always come by to grab a cup of coffee each morning and interact with the customers. She would share stories or just talk about the latest town happenings. She was a gem to all who knew her. My sincere condolences to the family. May her soul Rest In Peace.
