Cynthia Ann Greenfield

December 23, 1939 - December 18, 2018

It comes with deep sadness that our beloved Cynthia Ann Greenfield left her loving family on Tuesday, December 18th, 2018 in Wilmington, North Carolina. Cynthia was born December 23rd, 1939 in New York City to the late Anne and Anson Shevlin. Cynthia moved to Vermont with her husband and founded one of the most famous ski areas in the northeast, Glen Ellen. She then moved to Manhattan and worked for years for Skadden, Arps law firm. Cynthia and Paul retired to Wilmington, NC to enjoy a warmer climate and have resided for 15 years. Cynthia was a longtime resident at the Knolls in New Fairfield, CT spanning over 4 decades of spectacular summers with her parents, her children and her grandchildren. All three generations attended the children’s camp of which Cynthia was the director for many years. Cynthia also acted as the entertainment director while her husband Paul was acting President.
She took great pride and love of her community and always spoke fondly of her memories.

Cynthia is survived by her husband Paul, sister Patricia, brother Kevin, daughters Tracie and Dawn, step children Nancy and Michael, grandchildren Alixandre, Zachary, Christopher, Sophia, Dylan, Lia, Mia, Jade and also a great grandson Elliott.
Cynthia will be sadly missed and there will be a huge void in the lives that she touched. We love you always and forever.
