MOUNT VERNON — Cynthia L. Bonsignore, 51, of Mount Vernon, came face-to-face with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on Thursday, Feb., 20, 2014, at the Ohio State University Medical Center.

She was born Sept. 7, 1962, in Mount Vernon, to Charles and Mary Margaret (Lester) McManaway. Cyndy was a 1980 graduate of Mount Vernon High School and a 1985 graduate of The Ohio State University with a bachelor’s degree in political science and English. She was employed by Ohio State University as a senior sponsored program officer for the Engineering Research Services Office in the College of Engineering.

Cyndy’s ultimate goal was living God’s plan of salvation every day. Even through her physical struggles it was her walk with the Lord and showing His grace and wisdom that gave her strength and comfort. She was an active and devoted member of the Centerburg Church of Christ. She sang contemporary and traditional gospel music for 38 years with her family, the McManaway Family Singers, and enjoyed the time it allowed her to spend with family and be a witness to others. She always loved composing original poetry and short stories, and those items were published many times.

She is survived by her loving husband, Tony Bonsignore, whom she married Nov. 28, 1986; three daughters, Britny Bonsignore, Ally Bonsignore and Casey Bonsignore; a brother, Matthew (Kris) McManaway and their children, Matthew Dillon, Katie and Ryan; and a sister, Kim (Jack) Atkinson and their son, Charlie.

Friends may call Saturday, March 1, from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m., at the Centerburg Church of Christ, 3830 S. Columbus Road, Centerburg, OH 43011, where a Celebration of Life service will begin at 1:30 p.m. A time of fellowship will immediately follow the program. The family will observe a private burial in Friendship Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions in Cyndy’s name may be made to Relay for Life Knox County, 5555 Frantz Road, Dublin, OH 43017.
