Obituary for Cynthia Jean Dugroo

Cynthia Jean Dugroo found peace on February 28, 2019, at the age of 63.  She was a passionate woman who cared deeply for others, and always supported the people in her life.  Determined and independent, she raised a wonderful son, Christopher, who sadly predeceased her nearly four years ago.  She was an avid reader and had a love of poetry.  Born in the city of Holyoke, Massachusetts of Robert and Eugenia Dugroo (both deceased), Cindy spent the first thirteen years of her life in in Enfield, Connecticut where she developed a free spirit.  Through a family move, she attended high school at Onteora Central, in Boiceville, NY, where she broke the record in the ½ mile, and became the president of the Girls Athletic Association. Upon graduation, she attended Ulster Community College and settled into a career caring for customers as a baker, waitress, and hostess.  Thirty years ago, she settled in the Poughkeepsie area, initially around Vassar College, with the last decade residing in Hyde Park.  She worked at the Kingston Howard Johnsons, and Acropolis diner, among others.As a single mom, Cindy's most fulfilling purpose in life was raising Christopher to become a remarkable musician, student, and vibrant personality.  Her greatest pride came the day he graduated from New York University leading to an education in law at Brooklyn Law School.  Surviving are her brother, Mark, (and family) residing in Silver Spring, MD, cousin John Pirog (and family), Ballston Spa, NY, and an uncle, Eric Dugroo (and family) from Holyoke, Mass, along with countless supportive friends.Friends and relatives may call from 5-7PM on Friday, March 15, at Sweet’s Funeral Home, 4365 Albany Post Rd, Hyde Park, NY.  A Catholic Mass will begin at 10 am at Regina Coeli Catholic Church on Saturday, March 16.  Her final resting place will be at Poughkeepsie Rural Cemetery, beside her son.  In lieu of flowers, Cindy’s family respectfully requests memorial donations to Dutchess County SPCA, 636 Violet Ave, Hyde Park, NY 12538 (
