Cynthia W. Smith, 76, passed away July 14 at Seaport Village. Cindy fought diligently for the last several months with the hopes to return home to Paddy Lane. She passed suddenly two days prior to reaching her goal. She now joins her husband, Ronnie, who predeceased her in 2009. She was also predeceased by sister Doris Osgood and brother Tilden Wessel.

The youngest of four siblings, she was born in Blue Hill to Philip and Mary Wessel. A 1959 George Stevens Academy graduate, Cindy went on to obtain her LPN, marry and raise her two children, Danial and Mary. Cindy taught Sunday school at the Franklin Methodist Church, was a Girl Scout leader and was committed to her community.

She is survived by her children and her loving cat Hamish; a brother, Norris Wessel and wife, Elaine, of Blue Hill; a sister, Irene Rachinski of Blue Hill; sister-in-laws, Sally Wessel of Harpswell and Sandra Ingalls of Franklin; a brother-in-law, Doug Smith and wife, Joan, of Franklin. Along with a very special niece, Judy Drouin, of Danvers, Mass., “Nin” is also survived by a very special great-nephew, Sam Smith of Franklin and many other nieces and nephews.

A graveside service will be at Bayview Cemetery, in Franklin on Tuesday, July 25, at 1 p.m. In lieu of flowers, her children request donations be made to SPCA of Hancock County.

    We are so very sorry to learn of your mother’s passing. Indeed she was a very brave woman transferring from EMMC to Seaport and back and forth again, working so very hard to get better. She and Andy were often table companions at Seaport and also greeted each other in the halls at EMMC. We are both saddened by her loss. Andy and Donna Strachan, Machias

    The loss of a cherished loved one is the most devastating experiences a family can face. At times, the loss may seem unbearable. Please know that there are family and friends who care and more importantly Psalm 34:18 tells us that “God is near to those that are broken at heart. He is the God of all comfort. God will comfort you during this difficult time of grief. Our prayers are also with you and your family.
