Cynthia O’Shaughnessy was born on 11/10/1955 in Downey, CA and returned to heaven on the 8th of November, 2018 after spending nearly 62 years and 363 days teaching us all. She is survived by her mother, Mary Keith, father, John O’Shaughnessy, three sisters; Vickie Craine, Coleen Reece, and Judy Allen (Jay Allen), many nieces, nephews, great nieces, great nephews, loving aunts and uncles. We were so very lucky that she picked us to be her family. She was a true angel and the sweetest of souls. We as a family would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to Dr. Polito and staff, the Angels at Alpha School (Cindy’s happy place) who took such good care of her for so many years and the Hillside House staff who looked after Cindy during her final days. There will be a celebration of life for family and close friends on November 18th at 2:00 pm at 414 Paseo Del Descanso, Santa Barbara. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to the Alpha Resource Center to aide them in further providing outstanding care to individuals in need.
