Cynthia E. Bashford Davis ’79

Published in the Apr.23, 2008, issue

Cindy died April 12, 2007, at her home, surrounded by her family, following a courageous two-and-half-year battle with breast cancer.

Her sense of humor and sensitivity to others shone through to the end. Cindy was a devoted and beloved wife, mother, daughter, sister, and friend. She will be sorely missed.

At Princeton, Cindy majored in chemical engineering, was an active member of the Glee Club, and was one of the first members of a rejuvenated Cloister Inn.

It was through the Princeton Evangelical Fellowship (PEF) that she found true direction in her life as a committed Christian. It also was through PEF that Cindy met her future husband, Jim Davis ’80, but it was time at Cloister that started them on the path to lifelong love.

After graduation, Cindy was employed as a chemical engineer with DuPont before taking on the role of mother and, later, home-school teacher. She was active in her church and the school attended by several of her children.

Cindy is survived by Jim; their sons, Andrew, Timothy, and Christopher; their daughters, Gwen and Ellen; her parents, Raymond and Alice Bashford; and her sister, Carol Douglass.

The class extends its sincere condolences to her entire family.
