Cynthia Louise Davis

July 19, 1945 ~ December 22, 2021 (age 76)


SOUTH HAMILTON – Mrs. Cynthia Louise Davis was born July 19th, 1945 in Beverly, she passed away peacefully at Massachusetts General Hospital on December 22nd, 2021. She is survived by her adoring husband, Scott Davis, her children, Jonathan Davis, Derek Davis and Emily Luongo and her grandchildren, Ashton Davis, Cameron Davis, Jude Luongo and Elizabeth Rizzotti.

Cynthia was a natural leader and felt it was important for her to contribute wherever possible. She was past Chair of the Board of Deacons at Second Congregational Church in Beverly, MA, past President of the Pingree School Parent Association in Hamilton, MA and an integral part of the Golf Committees for both Myopia Hunt Club and Palm Aire Country Club in Sarasota, FL.

While she had a diverse and extensive career, she reached her greatest success in her role at Massachusetts General Hospital. Cynthia worked with the patient advocacy team. For her exceptional and compassionate work, she was awarded the Massachusetts General Hospital Employee Award of Excellence.

She was an avid competitor, winning numerous tennis and golf tournaments at the local level. As an enthusiastic athlete, she experienced success in just about every sport she tried (even if she only tried it once).

There are numerous more accomplishments and awards of recognition, but Cynthia will be best remembered not for what she did – but who she was.

Cynthia was a beautiful person, whose love and support for her family and friends knew no bounds. She gave freely of herself to those around her and her greatest joy was seeing them happy and successful.

She was the pillar of strength and grace. She faced many challenges in her life but unless you were close to her, you’d never have known. Cynthia was a quiet, private woman but never standoffish. She was loving yet firm with her children when she needed to be, because she always wanted the very best for them. She often had a nugget of wisdom to share- sometimes the advice was serious, other times witty. But always memorable.

When Cynthia walked into a room, people took notice. Her style and grace were striking yet she was remarkably warm and approachable. She made it look effortless.

“In the end, it's not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years.”

Cynthia Louise Davis will be remembered for the abundant life in her years and missed beyond measure.
