NORTHPORT — Cynthia Lynne Clark passed away Sept. 2, 2022, after a short stay at Waldo County General Hospital in Belfast with her best friend holding her for the last time.

She leaves behind her partner and best friend of 42 years, Herbert Black III of Northport; a special uncle, Donnie Clark and his wife Carol of Eddington; and cousins Sheila Dakin of Searsport and Alan Dakin of Swanville.

After graduating from Searsport District High School, a few years later she went back to help the students as the guidance secretary.  Her unforgettable smile, humor and endless supply of candy would forever remain in the hearts of those who had crossed her path, and her work ethic and willingness to go above and beyond for the students was truly appreciated.  She retired in 2014 after 31 years of service.

In her retirement, Cinder was happiest while working in her flower gardens that she had for years before retiring and was so proud of them until last year when her health prevented her from doing so.

For those who wish, memorial contributions should be made to their local animal shelter.  At her request there will not be any services.  Memories and condolences may be shared at
