Her giving spirit led every choice in her life and paved a path to her career in Oxford as the Director of Diagnostic Services at North MS Regional Center. Her devotion and service to others led her to become a foster parent.

She raised numerous foster children in a loving and nurturing home, selflessly giving of herself to care for their needs. Cynthia was a staple of St. Andrews United Methodist Church and was thankful for the opportunity to continue worshipping online during the pandemic.

She enjoyed fishing and singing, was an accomplished, self taught pianist and an avid fan of her Ole Miss Rebels. In addition to her father, she was preceded in death by a daughter, Ann Bagwell Cox.

In addition to her mother, Cynthia is survived by a son, Albert Bagwell of Oxford; a foster daughter, Selena Dardar; a sister, Tere Bagwell Johnston of Kuttawa, KY and a grandson, Mason Bagwell.
