Cynthia Kay Larson Foley, 66, of Westminster, passed peacefully Saturday, November 19, 2022, at BridgingLife Dove House. Born October 16, 1956 in Baltimore, she was the daughter of the late Catherine (Davis) Larson and Gustav Larson.

Foley, a sister Karen Gold and husband Joe, and brother Christopher Larson and husband Barry Hoffman, and her two dachshund best friends Eenie and Meanie and grandpuppy Barley.
She was predeceased by a brother Kevin Larson.
