Cynthia Real Obituary

Cynthia Ann Pessel Real, 43, of Williamsport died Monday, February 5, 2024.

Born February 15, 1980 in West Chester she was a daughter of Thomas F. Jr. and Beverly (Cannon) Pessel of Port St. Lucie, FL.

She graduated from Coatesville Area Senior High School in 1998 and continued her education at Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania, where she earned a bachelor's degree in business management in the winter of 2002. Her commitment to care led her to pursue a career in nursing, earning an associate degree from Pennsylvania College of Technology in 2012.

Cyndi worked as an RN at UPMC, Williamsport for several years and later home Healthcare specializing in wound care. In recent years, she transitioned into a work-from-home position within the medical field, continuing to impact lives through her dedication and skill.

Cyndi shared faith in life and recently healing arts. She enjoyed gardening and traveling, especially with her family.

Those who knew Cyndi were touched by her loving, caring, and friendly nature. Helping people came naturally to her, and she was easily moved by the needs of others. Her compassion and caring demeanor made her a natural caregiver, and she was always there to lend a supportive hand or an encouraging word. Cyndi was the epitome of selflessness, constantly placing the needs of others above her own needs or discomfort.

In whispers of sorrow, a life we revered, a soul taken swiftly with love yet unfurled. Gone from our sight, though memories won’t fade, a presence cherished in each tribute we’ve made. But though you’ve departed our love will remain, in hearts heavy with loss your light will sustain. Though tears may be shed we’ll find solace in time, knowing your spirit lives on in realms so sublime.

Surviving in addition to her parents are two children, William “Trey” R. Real III and Dylan E. Real, and their father, Robert W. Real all of Trout Run; a sister, Deborah Formica (John Goldstein) of Bonita Springs, FL; a paternal grandmother, Francina Pessel of Sea Girt, NJ; her parents-in-law, William R. Jr. and Theresa M. Real of Cogan Station; sisters-in-law, Denise M. Real (Seth Webber) of Williamsport and Laura J. Ferringer (Craig) of Trout Run; and her niece and nephews, Alexis, Giordin, Nate and Lucas.
