Cynthia "Cinco" Marie Thompson, 67, returned to her heavenly home on August 29, 2020, after a courageous battle with a long illness. Her devotion to family and her firm belief in God supported her in her struggle and ultimately gave her peace.
Cynthia was born to the late Bessie Beatrice Nixon and James Vaughn on February 27, 1953, at Princeton Medical Center. She was immersed in the Christian community as a lifelong member at Mount Pisgah A.M.E. Church, Princeton. She was a graduate of the 1969 class of Princeton High School and went on to work at The Nassau Inn, and Acorn Glenn Assisted Living Residence.
Cynthia was blessed with a large and loving family. She raised three children with patience, discipline, and humility. From the very beginning, she dedicated her children to God and encouraged them to explore the beauty of the gospels and to remain active in the church. Cynthia was kind-hearted and soft-spoken and enjoyed spending time with her family and friends, hot cups of coffee, and puzzle games. She is dearly missed by her loved ones, who celebrate that she is at peace with her creator.
Cynthia is survived by her children John M. Thompson, Minyette D. Thompson, and Ashanté Thompson; her grandchildren Brandi S. Best, Ahmad T.R. Best, Tajah S. Best, Bryell I. Wheeler, Tyler M. Owens; great-grandson Ahyan T. Best; nephews Richard Daniels, Paris Daniels, Chad Briscoe; niece Berlin Daniels, and a host of nieces and nephews. She is preceded in death by her brother Robert Thompson; sisters Joan Briscoe and Bertha Romaine; and special niece Nancy Thompson.
