WHITE STONE—Cynthia Liebert Crowder, 67, of Richmond and White Stone passed away at home on Monday, April 8, 2024, with her husband Mike and little dog, Huckleberry, of MSA-P.

She was born on September 26, 1956, to Dr. Henry Siegfried Liebert Jr. and Patricia Anne Bigley in Philadelphia, where her father was completing medical residency.

Cindy’s zest for life knew no bounds. Beloved for her generous spirit, love of family and mischievous sense of humor; it’s not surprising her last day among us brought a rare solar eclipse. With her bright smile and blue-eyed twinkle, Cindy lit up every room she entered.

In addition to her parents, Cindy was preceded in death by her brother, Henry Siegfied Liebert III.

She is survived by her husband of 31 years, Michael Ernest Crowder; their son, Charles Peyton Crowder (Elizabeth); her devoted sister, Lucinda Liebert Day (Bill); brother, Charles Alan Liebert (Laura); her children, Pascal Dorset Brooks IV and Mary McCaslin Gee (Patrick); and six beloved grandchildren, Livi, Phillip, Anne Henri, PD, William and Mack; and uncle, Dr. H. Alan Bigley (Garland) — along with the Windy Hill Crew and countless lifelong friends.

A 1974 graduate of The Collegiate Schools in Richmond, Cindy earned a degree at the Braxton School of Business and worked for Dermatology Associates of Virginia before managing the osteopathic practice of Drs. Liebert and Liebert, her father and grandfather, for 25 years.

A lifelong creative, Cindy learned the finer points of needlework from her grandmother (“Granzie”), inspiring her passion for needlepoint. She shared this love with her customers at Jermies in Richmond and Village Needlepoint in White Stone. From her father, she inherited a talent for gardening and cooking, a gift she passed to her son Chase. She cultivated Carter’s Creek Oysters, coaxed orchid blooms, baked braided loaves and cherished long mornings spent “sipping and stitching” with her sister Lucy, by the fire in White Stone.

A longtime member of the Tuckahoe Woman’s Club, Cindy was also a tireless parent-volunteer, chairing St. Christopher’s Fall Festival in 2002. When the school newspaper identified her as “Cindy Crawford,” the typo brought her endless delight.

A visitation was held from 4-6 p.m. Friday, April 12, at Bliley’s – Central, 3801 Augusta Avenue, Richmond. A celebration of Cindy’s life was held at 10 a.m. Saturday, April 13, at Hollywood Cemetery, a reception followed. Memorial contributions may be made to Mission MSA,, 1660 International Drive, Suite 600, McLean, VA 22102.
