Cinthia F. Modzelewski Sonnenlitter 1966-2021

AUSTINTOWN — Cinthia Faith Modzelewski, 54, formerly of Girard, completed God’s journey Friday, Feb. 19, 2021, at Windsor House.

She was born April 28, 1966, in Harrisburg, Pa., the daughter of Bill and Dolly Sonnenlitter of Girard.

She is survived by her sister, Trudee (Weatherby) of Youngstown; brother, Eddie Sonnenlitter of Cleveland; and sister, Carleen Pedziwater; and family Jim, Marek and Emily of Illinois. She is also survived by several uncles and aunts, and many cousins.

A sister, Denise Sonnenlitter, preceded her in death 19 years ago. All her grandparents are deceased, as well as aunts, Sandy, Shirley and Betty.

Cinthia started her journey by beating all odds. We were told she wouldn’t survive past the age of 10. She attended Gertrude Barber Center in Eris, Leonard Kirtz Youngstown, Fairhaven in Warren, and lastly, The Purple Cat.

Cinthia had always exceeded at everything she did. She played basketball and volleyball and especially in swimming, earned many gold and silver medals. She was also a cheerleader for the Fairhaven boys basketball team. She also loved to bowl and was an avid dancer. She enjoyed music, puzzles, latch hook, art projects and the church choir.

Cinthia had a strong compassion for life. Many will miss her.

The family wants to express sincere thanks and gratitude to all, especially Omni Manor in Austintown.

She has touched many people on her journey, and now she is at rest after a great struggle.

Calling hours will be held Friday, Feb. 26, 2021, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Blackstone Funeral Home, with a service to follow at 1 p.m. Cinthia will be laid to rest in Crown Hill Cemetery.

The family requests any contributions be made to Hospice of the Valley, in Cindy’s name.
