Cynthia “Cindy” Thames Blackistone
May 4, 1957- June 29, 2021
Cynthia (Cindy) Thames Blackistone, a life-long resident of Fairhaven, Maryland, passed away on June 29, 2021, at the age of 64. Cindy will be greatly missed by her husband Mick, step-son Chris (Katie), and granddaughters Brittany (Austen), Taylor, and Hadley. She was much loved by her siblings and their families, Jeff Thames (Evelyn, Kadie, Colton, Carson), Pam Thames Michael (Amanda, Tara, William, Sophia), Paula Thames Sclichter (Karl, Michael, Katherine) and Michael Thames (Julie, Brian, Amy, David). She was preceded in death by her parents, Frank and Catherine Thames.
Cindy grew up in Fairhaven, swimming and boating on the bay, where she made life-long friends and became a go-to person for help and information in the community. She was instrumental in the establishment of the Annual Labor Day Volleyball Tournament, now in its 33rd year, bringing several generations of Fairhavenites together. Cindy and Mick lived in several homes in Fairhaven, her favorite being “ForEversFields” where family, friends, and friends of friends could enjoy the pool, no invitation needed. In addition to spending time with family and friends, Cindy was a lover of dogs and never had less than two in her life.
Cindy had a long and successful career in positions with both Prince Georges and Anne Arundel Counties. She retired as Executive Assistant to the Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee Chairman in the Maryland House of Delegates. Following her retirement, she spent a decade as a successful real estate agent with EXIT By The Bay. Her strong work ethic, tireless effort, and desire to assure that dream home was attained was ever present.
A friend recently shared of Cindy that no woman ever gave so much to so many, asking nothing in return.
A visitation will be held on July 8th from 5:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. A service will be held at Herrington On The Bay, Rosehaven, Maryland, on July 9th at 11:00 a.m., followed by a Celebration of Life reception, 12:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m.
