Legacy Giving to Strong House Adult Day Center


One Legacy Donor’s Story: Cynthia Baran


"We were so surprised and touched by her selfless gift. I just wish Cindy was still here for us to thank."

-Lori Murphy, Strong House Director

The Strong House met Cynthia Baran when her mom, Maggie, was a client. After her mom’s passing, Cindy became a volunteer for 3 years. Cindy bravely fought cancer for 2 years, but succumbed to the disease in 2014. Despite her daily pain, she never complained and visited the Strong House whenever she could. Cindy loved the clients and staff of the Strong House, and it caused her to plan ahead – ultimately leaving the adult day center a donation in her will.

Cindy had a gift for storytelling, and her compassion for those living with dementia shined through. Her friendship, her smile and her stories continue to warm the hearts of Strong House clients and staff members – and her generosity helps the adult day center continue its important mission.
