Cynthia had a natural kindness that drew people to her. She was kind, funny, smart, independent, compassionate, caring, beautiful and artistic. She enjoyed music and playing instruments including the guitar, violin, mandolin and singing.
Cynthia was an extremely talented artist. She began painting in her teen years and continued to paint until the end of her life. Her painting collection included portraits, beautiful Montana landscapes, wildlife, and her most cherished dogs. One of her paintings called “Stillwaters” was displayed at the Holter Museum of Art. Her ability to paint the things she loved was incredible.
Cynthia worked most of her adult life for the State of Montana where she retired as an IT Project Director. Her career started in food stamp issuance and worked her way up to building and implementing the EBT benefit card. Cynthia went on to lead several other projects for the state until she retired.
Cynthia enjoyed traveling around Montana in her RV (AKA mobile art studio). She really enjoyed being outdoors every opportunity she could. She loved landscaping, gardening, building things with power tools, driving her classic cars, cooking, sewing and crocheting. Her talents and abilities had no limits.
Cynthia is survived by her children, Jeffrey Maxfield, Nicholas Whitbeck (LaToya), DeAnna Noel (Dustin), Steven Murray; grandchildren, Tyler Maxfield, Kalie Maxfield, Jasmine Whitbeck, Davin Noel, Delia Noel, and great grandson, Bennett Blankenship.
