Cynthia Ann Mays was born in Jamaica Queens, New York on April 6, 1966 to the late Georgia Mae Mays and Ernest Lee Davis. She was affectionately call “Ann” by her family and “Cindy” by her friends. After leaving New York, Ann moved to Michigan, where she gave birth to her beautiful baby girl, Yvonne Irene Alexander. After leaving Michigan she moved to Cartersville, Georgia. Cartersville was really home for Ann, and this is where she blossomed.
She joined the Breath of God Life Ministries Church, then moved her membership to Church at Liberty Square. Liberty Square is where she found her niche; she became active in the different organizations of the church. Ann found herself singing in the choir and working on the Harvest House Food Pantry. Working in the food pantry gave her so much joy, helping and feeding those in need. She believed it was our duty to be our brother’s keeper and didn’t just talk about it; she put it to practice.
After this past year with COVID-19, Ann left Liberty Square to unite with the New Beginning Church, under the leadership of Sr. Pastor Barry Garland. Cynthia Ann was a busy lady; her first job in Cartersville was with the Bartow County Transit. After leaving the County Transit System, she opened the Cindy’s Sunshine Transportation Company. She realized the need for seniors to have private care, so she started her Home Health Company providing private care for seniors. As if this was not enough, it was placed on her heart to write a book. She prayed and
asked the Lord “ You want me to write a book?????” and she did! Her book “God Turned Around for Good, What the devil meant for Evil “was published in 2019. She was very proud of this book; and traveled all around promoting and speaking on the book.
Ann had a bigger than life personality, she always had a BIG smile on her face and full of laughter. You could hear her voice over every one in the room. She truly loved people and was very concern about their love for God and where their souls would spend eternity. She didn’t want a single soul to be lost.
She was preceded in death by, her mother, grandparents, and uncles, all whom welcomed Ann home.
Ann is survived by her daughter, Yvonne Irene Alexander; sisters, Linda Faye Guess (John) and Brenda Lee Mays; brothers, James Edward Mays (Angela) and Steven Mays (Regina); aunts, Ella Morris, Barbara Mays, Rochelle Perkins, Ozella Mays and Ella Lorena Mays; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and dear friends.
