Burke high school.  Cynthia attended St. James CME church of Fayette, AL with her extended family.  She thoroughly enjoyed preparing meals and her most favorite dish of indulgence was shrimp scampi. 

Cynthia was formerly employed as a cafeteria worker, her duties centered around food preparation and presentation.  Cynthia enjoyed singing and she would lift her melodious voice at every available opportunity. 

Cynthia was preceded in death by her parents, her beloved brothers Billy and Charles Wilson.

She leaves to cherish her memory  daughter Adreka Wilson.  Grandsons Bruce Maiben and Malick Horacious..  One very special maternal aunt Nealie Wilson Dunkley of Fayette, AL.  cousins Linda Wilson of Fayette, AL and Brian (Sonja) Wilson of Huntsville, AL.  She is also survived by her paternal aunt Mary and loving host of other relatives and special lifelong friends.
