Cynthia Ann Bartleson, 53


Cynthia Ann Bartleson, 53, of Georgetown, Del. passed away Saturday, Feb. 13, 2010, at home. She was retired from the Indian River School District where she worked on the cafeteria staff. She was a member of the Dagsboro Church of God, and unselfishly gave of herself to everyone, no matter who you were. She “mothered” everyone, regardless if you were in her family or not. She loved to take care of her grandchildren, and she loved to be the “short order” cook for all, fixing each person what they want. She was a hard-working woman, who fought valiantly until the end.
Bartleson is survived and her parents, Curtis C. and Audrey Moore Taylor of Seaford, Del.; her beloved husband of 25 years, James E. Bartleson, Jr; and by her in-laws, James and Anna Bartleson; two sons, Mark A. Collins and his fiancé Lacey Hurst of Fla. and Michael B. Eikenberry and his wife Christine of Georgetown, Del.; two daughters, Patricia A. Dukes and husband Christopher of Georgetown and Heather N. Collins and fiancé Curtis Hall of Georgetown; two brothers, Steve Taylor and his wife Micki of Seaford and Duane Taylor and his wife Kelly of Richmond, Va.; one sister: Denise Rementer and husband Tony of Seaford, Del.; nine grandchildren, Cameron, Ashley, Peyton, and Madison Dukes, Makayla Eikenberry, Taylor and Alyssa Collins, and McKenzie and Kylee Hall. She is also survived by a special nephew, Burt Rementer; and numerous other nieces; nephews and extended family across Sussex County. She is also survived by her beloved canine friend, “Champ.”
