Cynthia “Cindy” Leigh Mayzel, 50, of Woodbridge, VA, entered into eternal rest at home, and surrounded by her loving husband, son, and family, on October 9, 2017. Her beloved son, Jake Lewis, from Woodbridge, and grandparents, Mary Renee Ponce and Jimmy Ponce from Norfolk, VA, William Tracy, all preceded Cindy in death.

A 1985 graduate of Garfield Senior High School, Cindy enjoyed a rewarding career in the interior design industry prior to working as a Senior Project Manager for the U.S. Bureau of Prisons, U.S. Department of Justice, where she has been employed since 2001. In her free time, Cindy loved making jewelry and creating craft projects. Cindy was a selfless and devoted mother whose love for children extended not only to her own children and grandchildren, but also to her many nieces and nephews.
Cindy is survived by her devoted husband and caretaker, Armand Mayzel Jr. of Woodbridge, VA; a son, Eric Lewis, of Woodbridge, VA (daughter-in-law, Nicole, and grandchildren Stokley Lewis and Ashlynn Jones); step-children, Christopher Mayzel, of Woodbridge, VA and Emily Busse (Chris) of Japan; her parents, Tony Sr. and Carol Midgett of Stafford, VA; her siblings, Renay Michael of Harrisburg, VA, Lisa Brown of Arlington, VA, Marie Perez of Manassas, VA, and Tony Midgett Jr. of Stafford, VA; her father-in-law, Armand Mayzel, Sr. (d.
