Cynthia T. Sin

October 18, 1951 — January 23, 2021

Cindy Sin never passed up the opportunity to see with beauty in nature, with flowers and gardens, for they are like family and friends…they bring color into the world! Cindy helped color her circles and world with magnificent gardens of her own and with her active membership in the Waltham Garden Club.

Cindy also knew that prayer is the road to heaven, but faith opens the door. She died peacefully at home on Saturday, January 23, 2021. She was 69 years old.

Cynthia Ann Tracy was born on October 18, 1951 in Lewiston, Maine a daughter of the late William Henry Tracy and Melvina Amanda (Barber) Tracy. A graduate of Gardiner High School she then took several courses at the University of Southern Maine. She married Sonny W. Sin at her parents' home on October 2, 1977 and they have made Waltham their home for over 40 years.

She worked for many years as a familiar and friendly face as a teller for Cambridge Savings Bank before retiring in 2013. She then did private duty home health care for patients and families suffering from Alzheimer's disease.

Cindy was an active member of Reservoir Church in Cambridge where she taught in its Sunday school program. She kept her hands busy with needles and yarn and was a talented knitter. She also took part in support groups through Al Anon. Loyal to her native Maine she loved time back by the coast on its beautiful beaches. She was also a music lover of many genres.

In addition to her husband of 43 years, Sonny, she leaves their daughter, Hillary P. Nelson (and her husband Jack) of Lynnfield; her siblings, Deborah A. Sween (her husband Robert) of Punta Gorda, Florida, and William M. Tracy (his wife Patricia) of Hobe Sound, Florida; in-laws, Rick W. Sin (his wife Vicky) of Wayland; Irene Sin of Quincy and Kegina Sin of Pasadena, California; as well as many nieces & nephews.

Out of an abundance of love and caution for family and friends' services for Cindy will be private.

Tuesday, December 22, 2020 – a note from the funeral home pursuant to Governor Baker's recent order:

During times of uncertainty and crisis one might wonder what to do at the loss of a loved one or how to show support to a friend given the limitations that the pandemic continues to present.

Telephone your friend to offer words of love, support and a verbal hug, drop something delicious by the house, leave a condolence on the funeral home website, make a donation to their favored charity, send a card or flowers or have a Mass said, remain in touch, and above all else . . . say prayers for the deceased and their family and the world during this difficult and unprecedented time.

These simple gifts of sympathy and charity are more valuable than you will ever know.

When public wakes are held capacity limits mean that your visit to the venue where they are held should be brief to allow other guests time to say hello to the family. Only members of the immediate family remain present throughout.

It goes without saying that people who have lost someone are especially sensitive and understanding to the concerns that some of their own family members and friends may have about visiting any public places right now. If this does not feel like the right time for you to venture out please don't.

Space limitations also mean that funeral services inside the funeral home and in many places of worship will also be private. Most services, at the family's request, will also be livestreamed and recorded for future viewing. The link to access the channel is found at the bottom of the obituary notice online.

Cemetery services are included in the current outdoor gathering limit of twenty-five people.

During any events, public or private, common sense precautions prevail. That includes masks covering your nose and mouth, staying with your household group throughout the services and keeping a sensible distance. Thank you . . . again . . . for your patience and understanding.
