Cynthia grew up in Manhattan and was an alumni of St. Vincent Ferrer High School, Baruch College and NYU. She then spent the 90s and 00s living overseas with her family before settling down in Massachusetts. She enjoyed knitting, cooking, genealogy, and she was a competitive equestrian. She was a kind and compassionate woman who enjoyed working with the elderly and homeless during her work at Covenant House, and as a home health aid.
Cynthia was then diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 2012, and tragically, Ovarian Cancer in 2017. She spent the last few years of her life cherishing her time with her granddaughters and traveling around New England with her loving partner, Kevin.
She was preceded in death by her parents, John and Elenor (Borst) Lipman. She was survived by her partner of 8 years, Kevin Clauss; her daughter Gabriella (Constantino) Fujiwara, and her husband Jesse; her sons, Nicholas and Thomas Constantino; her grandchildren, Arianna and Emma Fujiwara; her sister, Rebecca (Lipman) Logan; former husband, Raphael Constantino; and many nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends such as Paul Clauss, who graciously opened his home to her at the end of her life.
