Cynthia Falconer

February 14, 1949 ~ December 31, 2021 (age 72)


Cynthia Marie Falconer was born February 14,1949, in Tyler, Texas. Cynthia was the grandchild of Ras and Sudie Lacy and the first-born to Leroy and Alice Lacy. That lineage made her proud, it propelled her. “Cause when you a Lacy, you not an ordinary person.” A word to describe her would be love, she truly loved everyone she came in contact with. Cynthia was the eldest of four children, her siblings Thelma Bettes, Roy Lacy and Sonja Creamer.

Cynthia was baptized at an early age where she attended Metropolitan Missionary Baptist Church. She then followed Pastor Craig Smith and became a member of Freedom Baptist Church for the last 22 years. She was a part of the Health Care Unit, Sunday School, and The Women’s Purpose Group.

Cynthia started her education at Corkery Elementary on the westside of Chicago. From there she attended Farragut High School and during her time there she was a standout student. She then went on to attend Wilson Community College, now known as Kennedy King. There she fell in love with the love of her life and future husband Rory Falconer Sr. Following graduation, she attended Chicago State University and achieved her bachelor’s degree. Finally, her lifetime dream of being a teacher was accomplished.

For the next 20 years she went on to teach at many Chicago Public Schools, but it didn’t stop there. Cynthia’s exceptional career was recognized and lead her to become a facilitator for CMCD, a program out of Houston, Texas. There, her duties were to travel, bring back, and administer curriculum to teachers across 15 different schools in Chicago. She then finally retired in 2006.

Cynthia was a fun-spirited, highly educated, and loving human being. If you knew the first thing about Cynthia, there was nothing that she loved more than her grandchildren. They were her pride and Joy. She lived to see them smile. That was Cyn, seeing everyone else be happy made her happy. To many Cynthia was known as “First Lady”, a name given to her from her father. Living up to it, she effortlessly commanded the attention of every room she entered. Her spirit of excellence was admirable and is exemplified throughout her family.

She leaves to cherish her husband, Rory Sr.; two sons, Rory Jr. (Lakaisha), and Eric; three siblings, Thelma, Roy, and Sonja; four grandchildren, Keshaun, Heaven, Cyncere, and Rory III; two great-grandchildren, Keshaun Jr., and Avier; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
