Ms. Cynthia J. Wolfe


Ms. Cynthia JoAnn Wolfe, 72, passed away on April 18, 2021 after a courageous battle with Dementia. Cynthia was born on May 27, 1948 in Youngstown, OH to James and Inez Johnson.

She is preceded in death by her parents; grandmothers, Josephine Robinson and Flossy James; aunt, Ida Mae Gilmer and goddaughter, Shanna Miles (God-daughter).

Cynthia graduated from The Rayen High School in Youngstown, OH in 1966. She continued vocational studies and later became a Licensed Practical Nurse where she worked for 40 years at Cafaro Hospital in Youngstown, OH and MedCentral Hospital in Mansfield, OH. After retiring in 2008, she continued to enjoy shopping, reading, traveling, playing Bingo, and spending time with family & friends before she moved back to Youngstown in 2010.

Cynthia was the definition of strength and thoughtfulness. Her strength was displayed through her ability to deal with any hardship and come out better. Unbeknownst to most, she marked everyone’s birthday in her kitchen calendar every single year. Whether she remembered to send a card or not, their day was important to her.

Cynthia is survived by daughter, Courtney Wolfe (Jersey City, NJ); brother, Vaughn (Linda) Robinson of Mansfield, OH; cousins Devlyn Jones (Youngstown, OH), Zachery “Buck” McDuffie (Youngstown, OH), Valerie Barnes (Cincinnati, OH), Jean Smith (Youngstown, OH), Loretta Prince (Canton, OH), Rhonda Gilmer (Youngstown, OH); niece, Jessica Robinson (Columbus, OH); nephew, Vaughn Robinson Jr. (Mansfield, OH), and a host of relatives.

    My deepest sympathies to Cynthia’s family – especially her daughter, Courtney. I just found this obituary when my letter regarding our 55th class reunion was returned to me. It saddened me to read this. May Cynthia rejoice in the loving arms of our Savior. Fly high Cynthia. Rayen Class of 1966.
