Wife of Louis Zamperini, a US Olympic athlete and WW II POW, whose story was told in the book "Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption" by Laura Hillenbrand". Cynthia was instrumental in influencing Louis to attend the Billy Graham crusade in 1949 that started him on the road to emotional recovery from the abuses he endured in the POW camp.
