Cynthia Fara Dalsey

Cynthia Fara Dalsey, 61, a resident of Swedesboro, N.J., formerly of Gouldsboro, died March 19 in New Jersey. She was the widow of Patrick Dalsey.

She loved her career caring for others as a registered nurse, earning her nursing degree from Community Medical Center and also earned her Critical Care Nursing Certification. For Cynthia, the more care that she could give the better, eventually finding her calling in the ICU at Crozier. She had a lifelong love of animals. Later years found her showing her basenji, fox terriers and Weimaraners and raising purebred exotic cats.

She is survived by her sister, Karen and husband, William Lane; a nephew, Cody; and a niece, Amber.

She was also preceded in death by a brother, Gregory Fara.

A gathering of friends and family will be held Saturday from 1 to 3 p.m. in the Brian Arthur Strauch Funeral Homes and Cremation Services, 3 First St., Spring Brook Twp.
