Born to Lillian (Hill) and Harry Moses on September 10, 1935, Cynthia Marie Moses was one of eight children. After graduating from Austin High School in 1953, she went to Cosmetology school and worked in that field for a few years. She then found her true calling for helping people. Over 30 years, Cynthia worked as a Social worker for the State of Tennessee where she was recognized as always “Striving to do her best” and “Working harmoniously” with her co-workers and others.
