Cynthia Jane Weisheit (Thompson) went to Heaven peacefully in her sleep on December 26, 2023. She was born on September 16, 1953 in Cleveland, Ohio to the late Mildred and Richard Thompson.
Cynthia's early years in Cleveland paved the way for a life rich in compassion and accomplishment. A journey that began in Parma and saw her graduate from Normandy High School unfolded into a tapestry of professional excellence and unwavering dedication to family.
Cynthia's professional journey was a testament to her indomitable spirit. From her role as a Customer Service Representative at Xerox to the strategic helm as an Office Manager at Westfield and the esteemed positions of Finance Director and President at AAUW, Cynthia left an indelible mark on the organizations she served.
Simultaneously nurturing a family of three children, Cynthia embraced the challenges of pursuing higher education, culminating in a Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration from Baldwin Wallace College. Her tireless commitment to both family and career set an inspiring example for all who knew her.
Left to cherish her memory are her devoted husband of 49 years, Gregory Weisheit, her daughter Lisa, her son Jacob, and her daughter Rochelle and son-in-law Jordan Vice. Cynthia's deepest joy emanated from her cherished grandchildren, Owen, Max, and Maria Vice, who held a special place in her heart.
Cynthia's legacy extends far beyond her professional and academic achievements. Her altruistic spirit shone through her countless hours of volunteer work, from Prince of Peace Church to Project LEARN (1999-2000), and her impactful presidency at AAUW from 2013 to 2015.
A nature enthusiast, Cynthia found solace in the beauty of the outdoors, whether navigating a golf course or exploring nature trails. Her love for literature found expression in book clubs, and her most cherished moments were spent creating lasting memories with her beloved grandchildren.
The resonance of Cynthia's infectious laughter and the warmth of her smile will echo in the hearts of those privileged to know her. Her positive influence on the lives she touched remains a profound testament to her kindness and compassion.
In lieu of flowers, the family kindly requests contributions to cancer research.
Family and Friends are invited for a service on January 5, 2024 at 10:00 A.M. at Prince of Peace Lutheran Church, Medina, Ohio.
