Cynthia Anne Wich, age 58, passed away peacefully at her home surrounded by her family on the evening of August 24, 2018. She was surrounded by love, and the two angels who supported her daily through her valiant fight against cancer. Her loving and caring spirit, along with her faith has not ended with her passing, but lives on in the hearts and minds of those who knew her. She is now at peace in the arms of her Lord and Savior.
She is preceded in death by her father Robert Silk and mother-in-law Leila Wich. She is survived by her husband Steven Wich, her sons Samuel, Benjamin, and Jonathan Wich, Mother Barbara Silk, brothers Robert and Richard Silk, and her sisters Marilyn Bowman and Sherry Lane.
Cynthia had many passions that brought her so much joy. One of these passions was the banjo, which she began learning five years ago. She even attended a banjo camp in Nashville, which concluded with her joining her fellow students on stage at the Station Inn. One special aspect of this pastime led to a private concert in her honor prior to her death by the famous bluegrass duo, Bela Flek and Abigail Washburn.
We could write pages and pages of how Cynthia was loved and will be remembered, but she said it the best, “I’m not a soccer mom, but a banjo mom that loves the Lord, my family, horses, gardens, and people.”
A memorial service will be held 11:00 AM Monday at Trinity Presbyterian Church with the visitation to follow at the church. Rev. Brandon Eggar and Rev. Monty Hershberger will officiate.
In lieu of flowers, the family suggests a donation to the Nikki Mitchell Foundation (www.nikkimitchellfoundation.org) or to Alive Hospice of Murfreesboro.
