Cynthia Kay (CK) White

August 23, 1952 ‒ June 30, 2019

Mansfield, Ohio

Cynthia Kay (CK) White, 66 of Morrow County, passed away from respiratory failure at 7:30 pm on Sunday evening, June 30, 2019, at Kobacker House.

She was born on August 23, 1952, in Richland County, Ohio at Mansfield General. She was the daughter of the late John E. and Betty L. (Snyder) White.

She graduated from Lexington High School, Class of 1970. She worked a number of places, including Midland-Ross in Delray Beach, Florida and most recently at The Center in Mansfield, Ohio.

She enjoyed gardening, history, archeology and reading throughout her life. It is also worth noting that she was both a feminist and a supporter of the LGBT community, and for many years a collector of all things rhinoceros related.

In regards to her passing, we respect her decision to leave on her own terms. We also take solace in the fact that she was not alone in her final moments, and that she left this world on a beautiful and sunny day. A day that at an earlier period in her life she would have enjoyed from the comfort of her porch while smoking a cigarette and drinking a cup of coffee, the way we remember her.

Cynthia is survived by her two sisters, Debra Iamon and Brenda White; two brothers, David White and Jotham (Liann) White; two nephews, Brett Iamon and Justin White; and close friends, Rose Mary Barretta, and Beth McClain, as well as many other friends and co-workers too numerous to mention.

There will be no funeral services held. She is to be cremated and her ashes spread by the garden she so loved.

As an alternative to sending condolences, we ask that donations be made in her memory to Planned Parenthood.

Snyder Funeral Homes is honored to serve Cynthia (CK)’s family and encourage you to share a fond memory or message of condolence to them.
