Picture Tribute

Cynthia Credia Ferrell  was born in Des Moines, Iowa on October 24, 1949 to the late Everett C. and Bessie L. Matthews.

 

Cynthia accepted Christ as her Lord and savior at an early age.  Her strong desire to have a relationship with her heavenly father fed her pursuit of him by studying HIS word, traveling and exploring the holy land in Jerusalem, attending Shofar weekly, and searching for HIS truth. She was a retired federal employee of 37 years, where she worked as an Investigator for Housing and Urban Development. Cynthia was a graduate of East High School and then later graduated from
Des Moines Area Community College.

Cynthia was a wonderful sister, mother, aunt, grandmother, great-grandmother, and a cherished friend to all.  Cynthia will be lovingly remembered for her spontaneous and upbeat spirit and her tenacity to protect her family. Those who really knew her understood that if you crossed her, she would correct you. Cynthia was known for giving the best hugs. Those tight squeezes could turn any frown into a smile! If you have never had one of her hugs, you don’t know what you are missing. And let’s talk about that contagious laugh. That laugh would fill a room with joy and steal the scene. If you listen, you can probably hear it. She loved perfume and always smelled so good. She also loved shoes, reading, singing, gardening, and learning new things.

Cynthia leaves to cherish her memory: two children: Tim (Monique) Ferrell and Latanya Lowery; five grandchildren: Alexis (Martel) Harrison, Asa (Gabriella) Ferrell, Alivya Ferrell, Ayanna Ferrell and Kaiden Lowery; three great-grandchildren: ObadiYAH Ferrell, MoriYAH Ferrell and Kaycen Harrison; her sister Carmilla “Theresa” Edwards; two nieces: Cassandra Bakker (Marc) and Sonia Pyka; nephew Antoine “Cornelius” (Amanda) Matthews, honorary daughter, Urasaline “Rossi” Frith, and a host of additional “adopted” sons, daughters, and grandchildren whom she loved and cared for as her own.

I had the pleasure of meeting Ms. Cynthia at dialysis. I was her tech and took care of her there. I sure am going to miss her beautiful smile and the constant bickering we did when she came into the facility. The last time I saw her at dialysis, I had informed her that I would be switching to the days that she didn’t dialyze and she looked at me and said “well Ronnie, who’s gonna stick me when you switch days?” I said Ms Cynthia there are other people here that are capable of putting you on the machine. She gave me this glare and said “I don’t want nobody else”. I all could do was laugh because I saw the seriousness in her face and then she laughed back at me and said “I guess I’ll have to settle”. I knew Ms. Cynthia didn’t like coming to dialysis but every time she came I tried to make it as fun as I could. I’m praying for the family’s strength in the lord. She will be greatly missed.

Cynthia was a dear friend for 43 years. We worked at the federal building and we car pooled together. We walked every evening after work when we worked at the Federal Bldg.. She was so easy to talk to. She was a very good listener. We laughed and talked about our families. She was truly saved and was filled with the spirit. She had a hug for you weather it was for tears or laughter.
I was with her the Saturday before she passed I brought her flowers and we hugged and laughed and I stayed with her for about 3 hours. I had no idea that was going to be the last time I would be with the most wonderful friend I could ever ask for. We did not have to see each other all the time. We would always connect and be glad we did. Until we meet again. We were friends to the end. God Bless the wonderful close net family that has all the great memories to carry them through the days, months and years. My friend is gone to soon.
