Cynthia Joan Smith

Cynthia Joan Smith Clifford, beloved mother, daughter, sister and friend, passed away on August 16, 2010 at the age of 58 due to an extended illness. Cynthia was born on September 21, 1951 to Bill and Joan Clifford in Richland, WA. She is preceded in death by one sibling Thomas Clifford and her mother Joan Clifford, whom Cynthia selflessly cared for during her final stages of cancer. She is survived by her daughter Kimberly Prince, son-in-law Paul Prince, grandson Jon William Prince Wallowa, Oregon, father E.W. "Bill" Clifford Richland, WA, sister Sue Seeger and brother in-law Dave Seeger Omak, WA, brother Billy Clifford and sister-in-law Christie Clifford Richland, WA, brother Danny Clifford Richland, WA, brother Bobby Clifford and Trisha Young Richland, WA, brother Johnny Clifford Richland, WA sister Connie Clifford Richland, WA, step daughter Kristi Sprinkle and son, Austin Sparks, NV and multiple nieces and nephews, along with many friends who have been richly blessed by knowing her.

"Cyndie" was a member of the RHS Class of 1969. While living in Cincinnati she became an avid Bengals fan - a loyalty that never faded. After spending many years in the Reno, Nevada area, she returned home to Richland to be closer to her family. She was especially appreciated for her good cooking and orchestrating holiday get-togethers. Cynthia took in many animals through the years, including her beloved "Bully." With her endless patience and care she nurtured this battered dog back to a life, a true display of her compassion and unconditional love.

Cynthia will be greatly missed, but we are all grateful the suffering she experienced over the past few years has ended and she is at peace.

Cynthia's family invites friends and loved ones to join them for a memorial service celebrating her life at Einan's Funeral Home on August 23rd at 11:00 am with a potluck reception following at the Horn Rapids Golf Course Sage Room, 1500 Clubhouse Lane, Richland, WA.

  • Cindy was one of my first friends when our family moved to Richland from Portland, Oregon. We were both the oldest of very large famiilies, and enjoyed figuring out ways to stay overnight at each other’s houses to get out of our chores. I will always keep you close in my heart, and send loving thoughts to your family at this difficult time.

  • A sister is someone who loves you from the heart, no matter how much you argue you cannot be drawn apart. She is a joy that cannot be taken away, once she enters your life, she is there to stay.

    A sister is a blessing, who fills your heart with love, she flies with you in life with the beauty of a dove.

    Cynthia you will be missed and never forgotten. I love you.

  • Mom,

    Our biggest battles were rooted in love, wanting what was best for the other and the frustration of not knowing how to make it happen. In the end, the only thing that mattered was being by your side. I am so grateful that I was able to be with you.

    My soul is bonded to yours for eternity, so this is not good-bye. We will meet again in Heaven.

    I will carry our love always,

    Kimberly
