April 28, 1966 – July 10, 2019
The worlds’ most amazing mother and grandmother, Cynthia Mbagwu, 53, went to be with our Lord and Savior on Wednesday, July 10, 2019.
Cynthia was born on April 28, 1966 in Richmond, Virginia. She was preceded in death by the world’s most amazing woman, Sallie Mae Boyd, and father, Lennie Boyd. Cynthia is survived by her two daughters, Amaechi Mbagwu and Ogechi Mbagwu; her granddaughter, Nasreen Mbagwu; her sister, Delores Boyd; her brothers, Quentin Boyd, Brian Keith Boyd, and Randy Hunt; and nieces, nephews and cousins whom loved her so much.
Cynthia was a firm believer in the Lords’ word. Every day she would tell her children, “Put on the whole armor of God…” and “Turn the other cheek.” Cynthia was so very kind and loving to everyone she met. She was so very strong, and honest. Cynthia inspired and touched so many lives. Her final days were spent surrounded by family and friends who loved her so much. The Lord truly created a beautiful angel when He created Cynthia, and she has now rejoined with the Lord once more. Those who were touched by her understood that the quality of her existence by far exceeds the quantity of time she was on this earth. She loved to smile, laugh, and tell stories of her mother. She enjoyed cuddling with her children and grand-child; her kids were everything to her. Cynthia is very much missed.
A memorial service will be held at 11 a.m. on Saturday, July 20 at Affinity Funeral Service. The family will receive friends on hour prior to the service at the funeral home.
Cynthia was a sweet, loving kind person just as her mother (my sister) was. She was loved and will truly be missed by her family and friends.
She was the best sister any one could ever have. We were very close and I love you for ever and I miss you. You touched everyones’ heart.
I’m a friend of the family, best friend to her niece, Jernita Cheatham. I never got a chance to meet this beautiful angel but I feel like I already knew her just from so many WONDERFUL things that I’ve heard about her. She seemed to be a very loving, kind, funny and caring person. Anytime someone could put the fact that their not feeling well to the side and take the time to call someone from their hospital bed, to not only wish but also SING Happy Birthday to you (sang to Jernita Cheatham ) that just HAD to have been an AWESOME person!💖 SO SORRY for your families loss and I will keep everyone in my thoughts and prayers. I pray God continues to bless you all and keep your family close to each other and close to Him and to help you through this EVERY step of the way. 🙏 From my family to yours… love you all. 💖
My loving and caring Aunt was kind to all. Although she’s no longer here in the flesh, she’ll never leave our memories and hearts.
She will be greatly missed and loved forever. I love you forever more Auntie.
Cynthia will be truely miss, she was like a sister to me. We shared a lot of great times together ups and downs . A wonderful person and so caring. I know you are now in heaven with your mom. My best friend my sister I love you Cynthia and I will miss you so much.
Ms.Cynthia was one of the most warm, kind, loving people I ever met. I have so many fond memories spent with her and Amaechi and during middle school and early adulthood. She was like a ray of sunshine and loved to laugh and make others laugh. My condolences to the family and I pray your strength in the days ahead. She was truly an angel and she will be missed.
Cynthia was a very beautiful and loving sister in law I love her very much and she will be miss dearly.
Always and forever in my heart I love you Sam.
🙏 Love You Auntie ❣
O how I love and miss my mother. I felt tremendous pain after my mom passed. I have lost my best friend, my counselor, my strength, my arms to run to, shoulder to cry on, my everything. She was so kind, loving, honest, wise, and Lord-fearing. She was the most selfless person I have ever known besides her mother, Sallie Mae. My mom was a strong woman. I know my mother is now resting and enjoying Heaven. It is selfish of me to wish her back. She is in a much better place. I praise the Lord each day for such an amazing mommy. I am no longer afraid of death, because I know now, when it is my time, I get to see my wonderful mommy again. I love you with all my heart mommy and you are very much missed.
Cynthia you are forever in the hearts and minds of so many family and friends who love you. Amaechi and Ogechi, may God’s peace be with you to cherish the memories and love of your mother. To the Boyd and Hunt family my deepest sympathy. I will always remember and cherish my cousin’s caring and loving nature.
Cynthia is the best aunt I ever had in my entire life I was close to her I always love her I’m so hurt that I love her a lot of stress going on lately rest in peace I’m sam you in heaven with Granddaddy and Grandma you in a better place I hope we meet again
Cynthia will forever be in my heart. Everyday I see so many of her wonderful qualities (kindness, selflessness, strength) reflected in her daughters and granddaughter. I remember how her beautiful soul shined through the very first time I met her. Her infectious laugh and love of her family always brought a smile to my face. She will always be with those she loved as we go through our everyday lives and make the best decisions for a meaningful, valuable and loving existence while we are on this earth.
Cynthia was an extraordinary woman, an incredible mother and an amazing friend. She met no strangers and treated everyone with love, kindness and respect. She was my sister, not through blood but through our very special friendship. We laughed together. We cried together and we prayed together. Rest in the arms of Jes6 my dear friend.
From reading all the loving words of encouragement about Cynthia, her life spoke for itself. A loving and God fearing women. We did not know Cynthia but we knew her sister Delores Boyd. The entire staff of Kanawha Personal Care extend condolences to the Family

Mommy I’m just up thinking about you and the great times we had. It is still very unreal for me. I know you now free from pain and suffering and are now rewarded in Heaven with the Lord Almighty. I just miss you so very much. I am so honored to have had a mommy like you. I will strive to be as good a mother as you to your granddaughter, and a good sister as well. I love you with all my heart and soul. I think about you all the time.
