Willie and Fadie Rubin welcomed their first child--Cynthia Denise Rubin--on October 16,1959 in Bastrop, Louisiana. Cynthia spent most of her life as a Californian, but always treasured her Southern roots. She graduated from John C. Fremont High School, where she found her passion for business and fashion design...and made many lifelong Pathfinder friends. Cynthia attended Southwest College and other community colleges over the years. Cynthia was spiritual and gave her life to Christ at an early age. She had several talents. She was a fashionable and creative seamstress, a make-up artist, a braider, a pretty good singer and a fantastic cook! She made mouth-watering meals and was known for her “potato surprise!” (Let’s not forget her love and talent for playing poker slots in Las Vegas too...shhh!) Cynthia was the oldest of six children. She enjoyed the responsibilities that came with being a big sister and proudly held the position as the matriarch after her mom’s passing. A tremendous blessing entered Cynthia’s life in July of 1999. It was the birth of her son Jeffery Isaiah Miles. He was truly a bundle of joy. Cynthia once wrote, “When I see his face, he brings a smile upon mine. I thank God for giving me someone who loves me for who I am.” Jeffery was Cynthia’s only child. They shared a lasting and loving bond. They spent many days laughing and talking about everything--and I mean everything! She affectionately called Jeffery her “muscle man”...even when he didn’t have much muscle. He definitely grew to be more of a “muscle man” and used his strength to help and protect his mom. Cynthia has gone to join her parents, Willie and Fadie Rubin, who preceded her in death. She leaves to cherish her memory: one child, Jeffery Miles; five siblings (as well as their significant others): Sarah Fitchew, Marilyn Reeves, Willie Rubin Jr., Allen Rubin and Mytress Middleton; and a host of nieces, nephews and extended family and friends.
