Cynthya Fuqua Obituary

Cynthya Fuqua (nee Basile) passed away on March 6, 2024, in Munster, Indiana, at the age of 61. She was born on January 21, 1963, in Gary, Indiana. She attended Merrillville High School. Cynthya was a devoted wife of 36 years to Lewis Fuqua and was a loving mother to Angela, Daniel, and Benjamin. She is survived by her husband, children, mother Lia Basile, sisters Lora Basile & Pamela (Michael) Kokott and many nieces, nephews and bereft brother and sisters-in-law.  Cynthya was preceded in death by her father, Alfred Basile who inspired her to always be learning.

Cynthya was a dedicated homemaker, full-time mother, provider, and gardener. She also provided 24-hour care for her father in his final days. Her nurturing disposition extended beyond her family as she was an avid gardener who regularly gave away seedlings to anyone she could reach with her voice. She also loved learning about and nurturing animals. Cynthya was always busy, working towards her goals, and sharing her knowledge to empower others. She found joy in cooking, raising German shepherds gardening, nature walks, mushroom hunting, and caring for any cat or dog in need of a forever home. Her greatest success was her children.
