Obituary "For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand. I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing." II Timothy 4:6-8 Cynthia Alinda Hines departed this life peacefully on Sunday, March 31, 2013, at home in, Hartsville, South Carolina. She was born July 18, 1952 in Darlington County, South Carolina, a daughter of Earnestine Arnold. She attended the public schools of Darlington County, South Carolina. She graduated with the Butler High School Class of 1970. After graduation, she attended Durham Business College in Durham, North Carolina. Cynthia or "Simp," as she was affectionately known by many, was an intelligent and hard-working woman. She began her career in telecommunications at Southern Bell. In July 1976, after marring the love of her life, Allard Hines, she and her family relocated to the Washington, DC area. "Simp" continued her career in telecommunications by working for AT&T. She remained in the Washington, DC area for over 25 years, until she was transferred to Atlanta, Georgia. She began working for Lucent Technologies/Avaya until her retirement in October 2006. "Simp" enjoyed working, traveling, and most of all, spending time with close family and friends, especially her daughters, grandchildren, and her mother. Some of her favorite pastime included reading, cooking, dancing, and laughing. She was a true woman of God and a faithful servant who lived her life in a way that was pleasing to God. "Simp" loved everyone as she loved herself. She believed in treating everyone with kindness. She was always ready to lend a helping hand to anyone who needed it. Her endless compassion, caring heart and beautiful laughter will be greatly missed by all she encountered. She was preceded in death by her baby brother, Randy Arnold. Surviving to cherish the memory and maintain the legacy of Cynthia Alinda Hines is her loving mother, Earnestine Olivia Arnold of Hartsville, SC; her two daughters, Toyas Hines and Tiffany Hines both of Atlanta, GA; two brothers, Ronnie (Lillian) Arnold of Columbia, SC and Roggie (Cynthia) Arnold of Manassas, VA; four loving grandchildren, Brandon, Tamaria, Talen and Rio; three aunts, Luvenia (Roy) Arnold-Mack of Charlotte, NC, Betty (Thomas) Lucky and Mildred Wyatt both of Hartsville, SC; two uncles, Elijah Arnold and Claudell Arnold both of Hartsville, SC; a niece, Angelica Arnold; two nephews, Ronnie Arnold and Edward Arnold; two half brothers, Leran Jackson and Leroy Jackson; two very special friends, Ann Lighty and Crystal Lundy, and a host of other relatives and very dear friends.
