Cynthia D. Zamora, age 44, of Round Lake Beach, passed away Saturday, January 21, 2017, at Advocate Condell Medical Center, surrounded by her loving family. She was born August 22, 1972, in Waukegan, to Jose and Alvina (Casarez) Zamora.
Cynthia had many passions, including music and photography, she always had a camera nearby ready to capture memories at any given time. She loved McDonald’s and family gatherings that served Coca-Cola, never Pepsi. Cynthia surrounded herself with her greatest passion, her family, whenever they needed her. Her home mostly looked like a family daycare, where she was known as everyone’s second mom. She will be laid to rest with her faithful companion of many years, a stuffed monkey named “Suzy” by her side.
