VAIL, AZ: Cynthia L. Michaud-Fitch, 62, of Vail, Ariz., died suddenly on Sunday, March 6, 2016. She was the beloved wife of Dayton Fitch; loving mother of Jason and Keith Lizotte; and proud daughter of the late Commander J. Alexander and Dorothy Michaud.

Cynthia was a graduate of Beverly High School. She worked at Michaud Bus Lines of Salem, Mass., for many years and more recently as the Head of Transportation at the Beverly Council on Aging. Cynthia loved her family and bringing joy and laughter to others. Her infectious laugh could always be heard several rooms away at any family gathering. She loved her long rides with her husband enjoying the beautiful sunshine and scenery of the desert and vacationing in Sedona. But most of all she loved “her boys;" she was so proud of them and their accomplishments. She adored her grandchildren and eagerly looked forward to her Facetime chats with them.
Cynthia’s legacy is one of love, a genuine smile, and friendship.
