Cynthia Ann McNally

August 11, 1942 ~ February 23, 2021 (age 78)


Cynthia, “Cindy”, Ann (Thibodeau) McNally, 78, passed away on February 23, 2021 in Cary, North Carolina. Born in Wakefield, RI on August 11, 1942, she was the daughter of the late Joseph Dennis and Julia Ann (Ross) Thibodeau.

Cindy was the loving wife of the late Ronald J. McNally of South Kingstown. She is survived by her brother, Dennis Thibodeau and his wife Jean of Richmond, RI. She is also survived by three children: Kimberly Moore and husband Michael of Cary, NC; Ronald J. McNally, Jr and wife Dianna of Malabar, FL; and Keith McNally and wife Michele of Coventry, RI. She also leaves wonderful memories with three grandchildren: Brittney Freeken, Lindsey Moore and Ryan Moore as well as one great-granddaughter Casey Freeken.

Cindy worked for the town of South Kingstown in the public school system and for the State of Rhode Island at the W. Alton Jones Campus of URI. She will forever be remembered as a loving mother and an all-star grandmother. Cynthia loved making meals…and maybe a few cookies for those that she cared for. She was the master of the camp stove, the holiday dinner and the pressure cooker. Her kitchen was always full of sweet treats and great friends that she made wherever she went. Cindy could often be found puttering in her garden with her dog by her side.

A graveside service will be held at 11am on Wednesday, August 4, 2021 at Pine Grove Cemetery in Hope Valley, RI.

Buckler-Johnston Funeral Home, 121 Main St. Westerly, RI 02891 is assisting the family with arrangements.
