Cynthia Zecher | Obituaries |

Cynthia Metzger Zecher, 86, of Jefferson, Maryland, entered eternal rest on July 19, 2022 at her home with her five children by her side. She was born on April 5, 1936 to Howard and Clara Metzger. She was the wife of the late Carrollee Zecher, who preceded her in death on September 18, 2021.

Cynthia graduated from Frederick Memorial Hospital School of Nursing in 1957. She used her skills as a registered nurse to provide home nursing care. Cynthia was a woman of strong faith and a member of Christ Reformed Church in Middletown. She and Carrollee have been involved in many community activities, including The Growing Project as a 4-H leader and the Burkittsville Ruritan Women’s Auxiliary.

Cynthia took great pride in her role as a mother and grandmother. She expanded her kindness and passion for children in her role as caregiver to the Segal children: William, Allison and Nicholas, whom she loved and adored. She continued a relationship with them after they grew up.

In addition to her parents, Cynthia was deceased by her sister Nancy Chu and Eunice Fouche.
