Cynthia Blair Thomas Obituary
Thomas, Cynthia Blair
Cynthia Thomas, 66, gracefully made her transition at the beautiful , Sherman House, on May 19, 2016 surrounded by her loving partner, her family, and cared for by the capable, compassionate hospice staff. She is survived by her two children Ian Blair Thomas and Morgan Cozzens Thomas. Cynthia was long time Arizona resident and daughter of Pat and Bob Blair, sister to Linda Blair Williams (husband JC Williams and son Chas Karakey) and Joyce Blair Buekers (husband Mike Buekers, daughter Carly Buekers Rebuck and son Michael Blair Buekers). After retiring, her last 14 months were spent in a very special, loving relationship with Craig Prouty, her significant other. Both Cynthia and Craig's love grew as they traveled, met old and new friends, and enjoyed their home in North Scottsdale. She loved county western dancing, her wine club, quiet special times at home, and her rescue dog, McDuff. Cynthia knew how to enjoy life. At the slightest provocation, she filled her extra time with the joy of music, playing the harp, watching the D-Backs with her daughter, having shared conversations with her son, Ian, and making sure her extended family knew they were all loved. Really loved - and this included McDuff. Cynthia was born in El Paso, Texas on June 7, 1949. From there the Blair family moved, following her father's growing career with the General Electric Company, from Texas, relocating to New York, Los Angeles, Phoenix, San Francisco and finally transferring back to Phoenix. Cynthia spent her business life in Tucson and Phoenix. Career highlights included increasing management responsibilities in Banking, integrative healthcare, retail and Real Estate. With each career discipline she forged many great long-lasting relationships. Her spiritual life started at the Church of Beatitudes and evolved at New Vision Center for Spiritual Living and most recently at Unity of Phoenix with Craig. Cynthia's love of song included choirs in many places singing joyfully this past Easter at Unity the "Halleluiah Chorus", her favorite!. With courage, amazing grace, dignity, joy, - and a special love was how she lived and how she passed. "Cynthia, you are the new star shining above the horizon just before dawn bringing hope, promise, and remembrance into each new day. You are loved" Come help us celebrate her Life on Saturday-2PM-June 18, 2016 at Church of Beatitudes, 555 W. Glendale Ave in Phoenix.
