Cynthia Merle Treasure, 89 years old, of Springfield, Massachusetts, passed away on Tuesday, March 16, 2021 at her assisted living facility.
Cynthia was born in Saint Ann, Jamaica and moved to Springfield in 1970. She was employed by Wesson Memorial Hospital where she retired after 30 years of service.
Cynthia was a woman of faith and a longtime member of her beloved Zion Community Baptist Church in Springfield, where she sang in the choir. She had a beautiful singing voice. She loved God and crocheting. Crocheting was her passion. She could crochet for hours and made the most beautiful blankets, which she always gave away to friends and family. She would also crochet caps for the babies in the neo natal unit at Baystate hospital.
She was an amazing Aunt and Grandmother. She had so much love to share. Her love for children is what led her to become a foster grandparent with the Urban League Foster Grandparent program, where she brought so much joy to children’s lives and loved to make them laugh.
