Cynthia Lynch Obituary, Deaath – We are deeply saddened by the loss of our dear friend and dedicated ambassador for Kentucky State Parks, Cynthia Myers Lynch, who passed away on Thursday, September 14, 2023. Cindy’s journey with the Kentucky State Parks began in 1976 when she joined as a seasonal employee at Columbus Belmont State Park. Her commitment and hard work led her to a full-time position as Fiscal Clerk Senior on October 1, 1985.
Following in her grandfather’s footsteps, John Adams, Cindy took on the role of Park Manager at Columbus Belmont State Park on August 1, 1998, a position she held until her passing. Cindy’s final wish was to ride through Columbus Belmont one last time, and on Sunday, that wish was fulfilled. The funeral procession, led by State Park Captain Jammie “Randy” Moore and Sergeant Steve Holland, guided Cindy through the park, surrounded by those who held her dear, before reaching her final resting place in Mt. Zion Cemetery.
Throughout her 47 years of dedicated service, Cindy’s unwavering passion and tireless efforts shaped Columbus Belmont State Park into what it is today. Her commitment to Kentucky State Parks was unparalleled, and her impact was felt by all who had the privilege of knowing her. As we bid farewell to Cindy, we express our gratitude for her 47 years of service to Kentucky State Parks. Her presence and dedication will be sorely missed, but her legacy will forever live on in the heart of the park she loved so dearly. Thank you, Cindy, for your unwavering devotion and tireless efforts. You will be greatly missed.
