Cynthia L. Percy of Belfast, passed away in Islesboro June 6, 2017. She was born April 6, 1941, in Islesboro, the daughter of Gertrude McLaughlin Leach and Fernald J. Leach.

Cynthia enjoyed doing a variety of arts and crafts throughout her life. With her late husband, she enjoyed making and painting Christmas presents for friends and family. She also loved to sew and make quilts. Later on, Cynthia enjoyed knitting and doing puzzles as well as playing with and spoiling her beloved dachshund “Blackie” who has since crossed that Rainbow Bridge. She missed him terribly.

She enjoyed going to and participating in the local flea markets and met a lot of friends there. She basically just liked to go out and about to talk and laugh with other people and to listen to their stories of life. Another one of her passions was gardening and she took pride in the way she cared for her gardens.

Cynthia was predeceased by her husband Richard Percy; two sisters, Harriet Parsons and Joan Price; brother Harold Leach; niece Andrea Sinclair and nephew Dale Price.

Cynthia is survived by her daughter, Jacqueline L. Smith of Islesboro and her partner Craig; her sisters, Leila Babbidge of Islesboro, Priscilla Sinclair of Belfast, Judy Leach of Islesboro, and Sharon Helps of New Hampshire; brother Carleton Leach of New Hampshire; and several nieces, nephews and cousins.
