Cynthia F. Dozier was born May 9, 1920 in New York, NY to the late Sydney and Ethel Frazier. Cynthia was the fourth of five children (Alphonso, Sydney, Gwendolyn, and Leonard (Lanky). Cynthia was educated in the New York City public schools. She graduated from Nursing School where she majored in Pediatrics. Upon graduation, Cynthia worked at New York Medical Center. While there, a wealthy patient of hers asked her to work with his children. He “made her an offer she could not refuse.” That was the beginning of her business as a Pediatric Home Care Nurse. Cynthia later met and married Dr. Norman G. Dozier, Sr., a marriage that lasted for 43 years. Cynthia retired from her business to be a housewife and to help her husband. She loved moving to her new home in Chesapeake with her husband after retirement. She loved to tell everyone “I’m from West Munden,” the name of her new neighborhood. Cynthia also took a leadership role with the young people in the Concourse Village Community in New York. She encouraged them to live a productive and meaningful life. She loved to read and had many novels at her disposal. She was a Life Member of the Lay Council at her church and worked with other organizations, upon their request. Cynthia was predeceased by her parents and her siblings. She leaves, to cherish her memory, her husband Dr. Norman G. Dozier, Sr.; two sons, Norman G. Dozier, Jr. and Mark Dozier; two daughters, Melvina Taylor and Lisa Dozier; three nieces, Delores Townsend, Joan Morgan (Ron), and June Frazier; two nephews, Alfonzo (Bud) Frazier and Lamont Frazier; four great nieces, Gena Moore (Vernon), Shelly Thompson, Kim Morgan, and Tania Fraser; one great nephew Darren Townsend (Angela); one “chosen” nephew, Luis Sapp; eleven grandchildren, Shawn, Tracey, Carol, Julia, Ian, Jordan, Lauren, Elizabeth Korrel, Felicia, Jazmin, Imani, and Jamaal; six great grandchildren, 6 great-great grandchildren; and, a host of friends and church family.

Andrea Townsend Aunt Ci-Ci, I will miss your physical presence, your feistiness, your stories and your no nonsense attitude that always had me cracking up! Some of the crazy things you would say and the way you would say it would have me in tears! Thanks for all you did for us and for loving us! We love you too! Your presence in our lives enriched them! I won't be able to think of the memories without having a smile on my face! You were one of a kind! I know your dancing now with those legs that are good as new in the spirit! Bye for now only until we meet again! Love you!

The Edmonds Family We send you our deepest sympathy. Words cannot console when we have lost someone we love in death. The Bible provide the finest basis for encouragement. 2 Corinthians 1:3, 4,calls God "the God of all Comfort". Just imagine, being comforted by a God that knows what we need and he gives it to us at the right time to help us cope and endure. During your time of grief and in the difficult days to follow, I hope these thoughts will bring you and your family some comfort.

Williams Family The loss of a cherished loved one is the most devastating experiences a family can face. At times, the loss may seem unbearable. Please know that there are family and friends who care and more importantly Psalm 34:18 tells us that "God is near to those that are broken at heart. He is the God of all comfort. God will comfort you during this difficult time of grief. Our prayers are also with you and your family.
