Cynthia Kirkland Mazza – January 3, 2021

Robert “Little Red” Wilson informed me that Cynthia Kirkland Mazza passed away peacefully at 2:49 a.m. on January 3, 2021. As he stated, “She fought the good fight.” Robert said while living in Waco, he and Cynthia had gone to the same church together since the 3rd grade.

As Cynthia lost her battle, her daughter was holding her hand while other family members were surrounding her. Cynthia’s faith was remarkable and her family was remarkably loving and attentive. Cynthia met Frank during her freshman year at Baylor, they married, and remained sweethearts all these years.

The 50th reunion in 2010 was the last one that Cynthia attended due to different issues.  Here are several pictures of Cynthia enjoying her time with graduates. A pretty smile was always on her face.

  5. Janene Loftis Jett: “Thank you for posting Cynthia’s obituary and the wonderful pictures.  She left a wonderful legacy through her various ministries.  Our paths never crossed once we finished our freshman year at Baylor, but I knew her well as a child and through high school.  She was an exceptional person and a gift to her family.”

  6. Dana Sauer Keifer: “Such wonderful memories of “girlhood” days.  A beautiful life lived by a beautiful lady.” 

  7. Tommye Ruth Blair Toler: I am amazed that Cynthia Kirkland’s mother is still living at 105! She was our troop leader in Blue Birds and/or Campfire. I remember walking with Janene Loftis from North Waco Elementary to their home. I think Linda Peacock’s mother was a leader too.
