Cynthia was born Nov. 22, 1950, in Hannibal, to Thomas A. and Josephine Marie Cook Smith.

She was married to Donald Campbell. He preceded her in death.

Survivors include two sons, Tommy Unglesbee (Lesley) of Vandalia and Sean Unglesbee (Janis Ray) of New London; four grandchildren, Mazie Unglesbee, Emily Unglesbee, Makenna Unglesbee and Harley Brewster; and one great-grandchild, Marlie, and her significant other, Paul Rosenkrans. 

She was preceded in death by her parents; and 2 brothers, Tommy Smith and Timothy Smith.   

A gifted floral designer, Cynthia loved her work and designed for several area shops over the years including Griffen’s Flowers, Ben Franklin and later the County Market Floral Department.

Away from work Cynthia loved animals. Cynthia never turned away a stray animal that needed a home or a meal. Whether riding her horses or spending time with her dogs or cat, Cynthia loved the time she shared with her pets. Simply being outdoors was a pleasure for Cynthia; she loved gardening, working in her yard caring for her flowers and even fishing. A talented baker, Cynthia made the best pies and cakes and loved to entertain. One of the most caring and unselfish souls, Cynthia had a big heart and she left everyone that came into contact with her with a smile.  

Cynthia was a Catholic by faith and also attended The Crossing Church.

The family would like to thank the Community Loving Care Hospice for the exceptional care shown to their mother, Cynthia.
