Aunt Cynthia took sister Charity and I to see her homemaking class, mesmerizing me as a young girl.. She took me into Boston, when I was five, with my mother Faith for my first big ride on a train and escalator. She amazed me by injecting cattle herself when they fell ill, baking fancy cakes, and hosting dozens of relatives numerous times. I think of her every time I write my name, a tribute to her: Hope Cynthia Bliss. May she Rest In Peace with Arleigh and her parents and siblings, especial my mother Faith, who just died December 29.

Dad and the family is so sorry to hear of the passing of Cynthia. We always had that common bond of us us kids knowing each other, growing up together, our parents being in school at Lowville Free Academy together. She has now joined so many of her classmates and friends. Now she and Arleigh are together hand in hand again. Bless you all. The Fred Tabolt family

Aunt Cynthia was such a sweet, calm person regardless of the mayhem that happened whenever the Bliss clan invaded. I last saw her during the Ross Moo-llennium in 2000 when she and Uncle Arleigh hosted the crew for lunch at their farm. We shared stories going back to when I was knocked out by a 500 lb. barn door that was being replaced that fell on me when I was 5. All I got was a mild concussion and a green Band-aid for my hand when they removed a deep splinter. Too many Ross family members are leaving us - we just lost our mother, Cyn's sister Faith on Dec. 29th. With love and fond memories, Jeff Bliss

I knew your parents names all through my teenage years. Mom and dad spoke highly of them. I knew them to to be good decent hard working people. My deepest sympathies to the family
