Sister honors Winthrop professor who died in crash

Dec 13, 2010 12:09:00 AM - thestate.com
Cynthia "Cindy" Furr was a teacher who taught not just English, but students who wanted to be teachers themselves.

All she wanted was to excite others to learn - then have that person excite others.

But on April 4, 2009, Cindy Furr and her 2-year-old daughter, McAllister died in a car crash in Charlotte, within a stone's throw of her home. The crash happened when two other drivers were racing on N.C. 49 at speeds reaching 100 mph, police said.

Just like that, 45-year-old Cindy and her daughter were gone. Furr - the kick boxer, the aerobics instructor, the music minister at Pleasant Hill Presbyterian Church, the Winthrop University professor and high school teacher before that - gone.

The deaths devastated her parents, Joe and Jean Furr. Sharon Furr, Cindy's sister, described that April 4, her birthday, as "the day our lives stopped."
