I am so sad about Cynthia's passing. She was a friend from many years ago and we often shared our dreams and goals. I will miss seeing her on the island.

We got to know Cynthia initially through the code enforcement board. Then we found out she lived on our block. We got to know her as a warm, kind, generous woman with a great sense of humor. So sad to lose her. She will be missed.

As Regent of the Palm Beach Chapter of the
Daughters of the American Revolution we are deeply saddened and have lost a loyal daughter,
who was always willing to help with all projects to help support our veterans, and
our TAMASSEE DAR School.
Cynthia had served terms on our board as Parliamentarian.
Cynthia will be missed! Our deepest sympathy to her family.

Cynthia was always a delight to be around
and I was blessed to be one of her many friends. She was beautiful, generous, gracious and talented, as well as, being an
excellent business woman. She was a loyal and devoted member of of the Palm Beach Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution as was her lovely mother, Ann Vanderveer Rapalijihe Van Buren
With Cynthia’s passing I lost a dear friend
and the Palm Beach Chapter lost a loved
and valued member.
Cynthia will be sorely missed.

When I think of your lovely sister, it brings back memories of her warm and loving ways, always smiling, elegant, charming, supportive and caring. Home-made cookies by the door for the children at Christmas, novelty decorations, easter baskets, and birthday flowers. A bouncing spirit, a joie de vivre, and a lovely "socially distanced" visit on the Via Mizner a month ago when we both were picking up take-aways at Pizza al Fresco. What can I say but there is a bright new star in the sky and sad and empty hearts below. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

Our Dear Friend Cynthia, May God bless you. We will miss your smile, your laugh and your incredible thoughtfulness. You told us when we met you years ago ‘Us Jersey folk need to stick together!’ and you have been a great & loving friend to our family ever since.
