Cynthia Russo, 78, formerly of Huntington Road, passed peacefully at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston on Tuesday, April 6, 2021.
She was born in Greenfield, December 17, 1942 and was the daughter of the late Stanley and Blanche Naperkowski.
She met Christopher Russo at Northampton Community College in 1960, and in May of 1965 they married. They were 2 years shy of their 50th wedding anniversary when Chris died after a year of battling cancer.
Cindy loved spending time with family, hosting many memorable gatherings. She was an avid gardener and learned a lot from her time working as an office administrator at CLFrank. Cindy had a passion and love for cooking and many of her dishes are staples at family holidays. Always health conscious, she rarely missed her daily walks around the neighborhood.
Cindy is survived by daughter Kimberly and her husband, Douglas Staut and their daughters Hailey and Clara of Brentwood, Tennessee and son James and his wife Elizabeth Tarleton of Canterbury, Connecticut.
Wrisley Funeral Home has been entrusted with providing for Cindy's care and services. A gravesite service will be held at 2pm on April 10, 2021 at Laurel Hill Cemetery in Deerfield.
