Cynthia Ann McClelland

W. Columbia, SC - Cynthia McClelland, 57, passed into the arms of her Lord and Savior on Sunday, October 15, 2017.

Cynthia was born on April 6, 1960 in Valdosta, Georgia and was of the Methodist faith. She attended Valdosta Technical College and was the office manager at Access Credit in Gray for many years.
