Cynthia Estelle Grossman
Cynthia Estelle Rich Grossman born Jan. 17, 1928, died peacefully at home Saturday evening, April 30, 2011. She was the matriarch of a large and loving extended family, who enjoyed her warmth and wit. Cynthia was known by many as Ma Grossman. Her enjoyment in life included friendships with vendors at the Camden farmers market who called her "Dearie" to her beloved rescue dogs. She threw legendary parties, was an avid gardener, bird watcher, accomplished cook and a nationally recognized interior decorator. Mrs. Grossman was a lover of life who believed in hard work. She was a staunch patriot. Until recently, she drove an enormous 1995 red, Chevrolet station wagon she affectionately called Bulky Roll. On the rear fender was a bumper sticker that read "A Tax Cut is a Pay Raise." She resided in Weston, and summered in Camden and Rockport, Maine. Mrs. Grossman was a quiet practitioner of philanthropy. She supported families in need, the Epiphany School, and multiple divisions of The Peabody Essex Museum to name a few. She now joins her husband, the love of her life, Everett P. Grossman and her beloved daughter, Tory. She is survived by her sister, a son, a daughter and son-in-law, her three granddaughters, several nieces and nephews and her canine "kids". Visiting hours in the family home, 141 Montvale Road, WESTON, on Tuesday from 4-7 p.m. A Church Service will be held at the Church of the Good Shepherd, 1671 Beacon St., Waban, Wednesday at 11 a.m. Graveside Service in Seaview Cemetery on Russell Ave. Rockport, Maine on Thursday, at 12:30 p.m. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to the Epiphany School, 154 Centre St., Dorchester, MA 02124 or the Church of the Good Shepherd in Waban. As she often said when hanging up the phone, " I wrap my arms around you and going to love and leave you now."
