Cynthia A. Porter

June 12, 2022


Cynthia A. Porter nee Sliwicki, age 73, passed away peacefully on Sunday, June 12, 2022.

Cynthia was the loving mother of Matthew Porter of Carol Stream, and Melissa (Don) Anzona of Carol Stream.  She was the Cherished Grandmother of Gabriella & Donald Anzona of whom she loved dearly.

Cynthia was preceded in death by her parents Alexander & Virginia Sliwicki (nee Karnowski) and survived by her brother Gary (the late Sandra) Sliwicki of Glendale Heights.

With unconditional love and kindness, Cynthia cherished her family and friends, near & far, greeted everyone with a smile, and was always there when needed.  One of Cynthia’s greatest joys was cooking & baking.  She never thought twice about sending a fresh batch of Muffins to the neighbors on a Sunday morning and is known best for her Cheesecake.  Her unconditional love did not stop there, she loved all animals, especially her Squirrels who she would get to gain her trust and take food from her hand.

Cynthia touched many lives, her smile & generosity will continue to live on through her children, grandchildren, many nieces & nephews and their families, and all of those fortunate enough to call her a friend.  She will forever be in our hearts and missed deeply by many.

Cynthia was born in Chicago and grew up in Northlake.  She lived in Villa Park and Carol Stream for 26 years.  She was a former member of St. Pius X Catholic Church.
