Cynthia Vaughan Jarvis

Cynthia was raised in the Presbyterian church, an active member of the Methodist church and involved in the Baptist church as well. She was a graduate of Mary Washington College and retired from Currituck Department of Social Services after 30 years of dedication to both Currituck and Camden Departments of Social Services. She served on the board of the Currituck-Dare Community Foundation and was a board member until her death.

Cynthia gave so much of her heart to others, through her work, in her community, but especially to her family. She found great joy in serving others through her work with the foster children and adoptive families of Currituck County. She changed their lives for the better with her gentle spirit, often going out of her way to make children comfortable with the life changes they faced. She was generous and kind, often going over and above to help families through the most important transitions of their lives. Her work will live on through them. She equally enjoyed living life on the farm and helping to successfully run Jarvis Farms with her family.

Memorial services were conducted Thursday, Aug. 10, at 11 a.m. at Moyock Baptist Church with the Rev. Vic Ramsey officiating. Gallop Funeral Services Inc. is serving the Jarvis family. In lieu of flowers, the family wishes memorial contributions to be made to Kids First, Inc.
