July 21, 1950 – Aug. 10, 2019
Cynthia Scott, 69, of Richmond, VA passed away on August 10, 2019holding her daughter’s hand. Survivors include her daughter, Brittney Scott, and her best friend and partner in hijinks since childhood, Diane Winslow. She was predeceased by her beloved son, Christopher Scott, her ex-husband Henry Allen Scott, and her parents, Ruth and Burnie Riley. Cindy inhabited a full and complicated life. She once lived in a holler in West Virginia with no electricity or running water. She lived in a haunted house on the top of a hill called Sally’s Rock. She got married in a field of wildflowers. Cindy loved breakfast foods and salty popcorn. She stayed up late watching subversive sci-fi movies in the dark. Cindy loved puzzles, reading, and fighting injustice. She hated Donald Trump and was a life-long proponent of gun control, environmental protection, and LGBTQ rights. Cindy wants you to remember how funny and generous she was. A small celebration of life service will be held in Evansville, IN at a later date.
Cindy was a wonderful and kind soul. I am honored and grateful to have had her in my life. My deepest condolences to you Brittney. I will remember her loving spirit always.
I’ll miss you, Barney…

Cindy was one of the most unique people I ever met. To live a life as full as hers would be a dream. May you rest in the arms of your guardian angel. And, may Brittany always know the legacy you left.
