Cynthia McPhee

Obituary of Cynthia McPhee

It is with great sadness we announce that Cynthia (Cindy) Gurley-McPhee, age 58 beloved wife and sister, was granted her angel wings on Sunday November 22, 2020.  She was surrounded by her loving family, both physically and virtually. Cindy was born on January 9, 1962 to Max L and Sarah C Gurley.   


Cindy was a loving wife of 20 years and a dedicated sister.  She was boisterous, passionate, and selfless and loved with a big heart.  She was brilliant, funny and the “go to” for family lineage and history.  Her passing was sudden and unexpected. She will be greatly missed by her husband Joseph McPhee, and her siblings Annette Beebe, Amy Herron (Jim), Tim Gurley (Angel), Alisa Mewborn (Glen) and Larry Milker as well as several nieces and nephews


Cindy was preceded in death by her mother Sarah C Gurley and father Max L Gurley as well as her beloved canine companion “Wee Wee”.


Cindy was a native Floridian residing in Tampa.  She worked alongside her father Dr. Max Gurley as a dental assistant where she impacted many lives with her skill, attention to detail, compassion, quick wit, and her ability to put others at ease.  Cindy loved the arts and was talented in her own right.  In her earlier years she enjoyed sketching, modeling, and fashion; she could wrap a Christmas present like no other!  She will forever be remembered for her ability to tell a story, make others laugh and most of all her catchy phrases. ” Too Cha Cha for words”, “it’s me, it’s me, it’s Cindy McPhee” and “what’s up buttercup?”, just to name a few. 


While our earthly hearts are heavy, we know Cindy is now in good hands watching over us and is in eternal peace with her Savior. 

Due to the challenges of COVID 19, we will prepare a memorial service for Cindy in the Spring to celebrate her life.
