She loved music from many different genres and taught her children to love them as well. Cynthia loved football, especially the Ole Miss Rebels and New Orleans Saints.

She loved people and loved talking to friends and former students. She would even speak to a perfect stranger and made it her goal to make even the dourest person laugh.

She made it a point to watch Jeopardy every day at 3:30 p.m., keeping score for herself and her son.

She enjoyed collecting coffee mugs from all over the world, stamps, coins, nutcrackers and Noah’s ark figurines. She had a knack for photography, making nature and her daughter her central subjects. She loved to write poems, especially for anyone who asked.

Preceding her in death were her father, Jerry Bailey; and son, Jacob Hinshaw.

Those left to cherish her memory are her husband, Wade Hinshaw; her mother, Jeannette Bailey; and her daughter and son-in-law, Bailey and Hunter Coulombe. She is also survived by a cousin/sister Brenda Hall; and numerous other cousins who loved her very much.
