Tribute & Message From The Family


Cynthia A. Foley, 62, of Hooksett, died on Saturday, March 14, 2020 at home after enduring years of pain from various medical conditions.

Cindy was born on April 26, 1957 in Newton, MA and was raised in Weare, NH. where she attended local schools and excelled in all sports with her "must win" attitude. She played center on the high school basketball team and surpassed the 1,000-point threshold in her senior year.

She was always community spirited and had a love for kids. You could find her at Horace Lake giving swimming lessons to all ages from toddlers to the middle-aged. She was also a certified CPR instructor and a volunteer for the Town of Weare Fire and Rescue. Her entrance into the medical field began as a candy striper at the Grasmere Nursing Facility in Goffstown. She was known about town for her widely recognized license plate BPLADY (bed pan).

She worked at the state mental hospital and took advantage of the schooling benefit and received her nursing degree. After the state hospital she worked for New England College Women's Health Clinic and finally Spaulding Youth Center working with the kids. Never one to stop when the kids were in need, the Special Olympics was her favorite. She couldn't wait for that time of year. Her past times were trout fishing, gardening, hiking and the ocean. Last year she went on a family cruise and fulfilled a dream of swimming with the dolphins in the Bahamas.

She is survived by her mother, Joanne Foley of Hooksett; one brother, John Foley of Manchester and many friends and of course the kids.

There will be no services held. Cindy's family will release her cremated remains into the ocean where she can once again swim with the dolphins.

Expressions of sympathy may be made in Cindy's memory to the Special Olympics of New Hampshire, 650 Elm Street #200, Manchester, NH 03101.
