CYNTHIA LOU NICHOLSON HAYES
September 14, 1950 – July 25, 2016
Cynthia was born to Thomas B. Nicholson and Lou Edna Nicholson on September 14, 1950. As a youngster, “Cindy” spent many of her early childhood summers at the home of her beloved grandmother (Muddy) in New Liberty, Kentucky. It was during those summer excursions, she learned of her family’s 80+ year history of being tobacco farmers. Who would have thought that as Cindy spent summers working alongside her grandmother in the family garden, eating tomatoes off the vine, riding on the tractor with Uncle Frankie, intensely listening to the process and labor it would take to have a successful tobacco crop, that the seed was being planted for that skinny, long-legged, beautiful granddaughter and niece to carry forward the love and respect for farmers and farming?
