Cynthia Mary Williams was born July 25, 1947 in Nespelem, Washington to her loving parents Ollie Miller and Wally Paul. Cynthia spent the better part of her 74 years settled in the Muckleshoot community. Attending innumerable powwows and tribal gatherings at the local longhouse, she could also be found enjoying herself at the nearby casino or bingo hall. A compassionate woman, Cynthia spent many years dedicated to the honorable field of nursing and later she touched many young lives as a school bus driver. Busy though she was, Cynthia could always find the time to partake in beadwork or shawl making and often she would enjoy perusing local thrift shops or rummage sales. Cynthia Mary was a good and kind soul who knew the value of hard work and family, the impact she had is immeasurable.
