Cynthia Lily Moseley (née Jones)
Peacefully at home on April 7th in her 90th year. Known by both blood and chosen family as Pip. She is predeceased by husband Tom Moseley. Loving mother to Laura (Michael) and David (Susan). Cynthia was, and forever will be, beloved grandmother to Ethan (Jessie), Clare, Robert (Leah), Tori (Pete), and Zack. Devoted great grandmother to Ellanora and Benjamin.
Cynthia was born on August 3rd, 1931 to parents James and Lily Jones in Buxton Derbyshire, England. She was the youngest sister to Joan, Joyce, Dorothy, Les, and Dennis. She married Tom in 1949 at the age of 18, in the dangerous and supply-scarce aftermath of World War II. Their firstborn, Jaqueline, died in infancy.
With their four-year-old David, the young couple bravely immigrated to Canada in 1957, where Laura would complete the family.
The Moseleys settled first in Willowdale and then North York, ultimately finding a home in Guelph. Cynthia remained an active and avid traveler even into her golden years, making many great friends both abroad and at home through her involvement with many community groups.
Growing up in the time of the “space race”, Cynthia was always interested in the heavens above and the fact that mankind was reaching further into it with each generation.
A memorial event will be announced in the future; in the meantime and in lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate donations made in her name to:
