Cynthia Young Venable, 71, a resident of Slaughter, went to be with her Lord and Savior on Thursday, July 2, 2020. She was a retired RN with over 40 years of service. A private family service will be held at Redwood Cemetery, Slaughter, conducted by Dr. Brian Robertson. A celebration of her life will be held at a later date.
She is survived by her husband of 10 years, Woodrow E.

She is preceded in death by her father Joseph Wall Young, mother Mattie Lucille Young and daughter Lydia Ruth Stanley.
She was a graduate of Clinton High School where she was a tenderhearted cheerleader who had trouble cheering for her Clinton Eagles because that meant cheering against the other team. Her sweet and nurturing nature took her to Mather School of Nursing in New Orleans, and on to a lifelong career of caring for the elderly. She was known to all as a kind and loving lady with the warmest smile.

Cynthia was the most loving child of God I could ever imagine. . We knew each other starting at Plank Road Baptist Church where if you can imagine we were each one of four sisters. Naturally we became friends. This friendship continued as we went to school at Clinton Elementary where she was one grade ahead of me. Then we lost track of each other for many years. Imagine we lived our lives, married,, had children, divorced, Now imagine almost 30 years had past when she came to work where I was working. It was like not a day had past since I last saw her. We had both become RNs. But more importantly, we were both Christians. I loved the Lord with all my heart; I was dedicated. My dedication dimmed beside Cynthia’s. I could barely imagine. Her ability to forgive was like that of a saint. She loved people no matter what walk of life they had chosen, no matter how much they had hurt her, no matter how they lied to her. She loved everyone as Christ had told her to. She shared Christ with everyone she met. She was a friend to many. She helped countless people through times of trouble in their life including me. She was a friend in the truest sense of the word. Imagine, know her children though I’ve never met them because we shared our lives with each other. We prayed for our children together and our grandchildren. We prayed for the Lord to send her a husband who was strong in the Lord and He did. Now imagine this, she was the healthy one and I had issues with my health. Cynthia was careful to take care of herself. I admired her ability to chose the right diet, vitamins. I never imagined Cynthia would go home before me. My heart hurts because we are apart once more Now is not the time for tears but for rejoicing! Cynthia has received her reward and I can imagine how she is in Heaven with her Savior. She has no more pain, or suffering! She can run and dance! Once she gave me a cd of the song “I Can Only Imagine “ and right now at this very moment I have to think is she dancing, or bowing, I can only imagine. This is another period of time when we are separated. But when I complete my time on this old earth Cynthia and I will once more catch up and more importantly we will spend eternity together! I can only imagine!

I was SO delighted when Cynthia agreed to help on the committee for planning an annual luncheon for Mather School of Nursing Alumni!! You see, all the rest of us on the committee were older and we appreciated her "youth" (in her 60's)!! We will remember her sweet caring spirit and was so glad she was still well enough to attend when we honored her class on their 50th reunion!! What a day of rejoicing when she joined her Savior in her Heavenly home!!
