Cynthia English

March 8, 1970 — April 2, 2022

Cynthia L. English, 52, of Dunnsville, Virginia, passed away peacefully in her sleep at her home on Saturday April 2, 2022.

Cynthia was a 1988 graduate of North Stafford High School and went on to graduate from The University of Mary Washington in 1993. After graduating college, she was a teacher in the Stafford County School System for 20 years. She married the love of her life in 1994 and became a loving mother in 1998. She always enjoyed spending time at her river cottage in Dunnsville, VA, and began living there full time in 2014, taking a job at Food Lion so she could still support her daughter while Kelsey attended Christchurch School.

Cynthia was an excellent cook and loved to experiment with new recipes. She enjoyed gardening with her husband and raising her chickens, and she generously shared vegetables and eggs with her friends and family. Cynthia also loved relaxing on the beach and looking for sea glass and seashells. Most of all, Cynthia loved her family selflessly. Her kindness and compassion for others will be missed by many.

She was preceded in death by her father, Byrd Pritchett. She is survived by her husband, Kenneth L. English; her daughter, Kelsey English; her mother, Barbara Pritchett; and her in-laws, Dennis and Nancy English.
