Aug 2011 Cynthia Lyons (Illinois)
To all of Cynthia’s friends and flying buddies, I am sad to tell you that Cynthia died yesterday from a recently discovered internal organ cancer. To her family and friends, she will be missed and will be remembered. Â To those that didn’t know Cynthia, she was very active in the IAC along with her husband, Dave Underwood. For years they flew a Super Decathalon later transitioning to an Extra 200. Cynthia was a competitor, judge and a lovely lady.
