Cynthia Ann (Johnson) Alfaro, age 60, of McKinney, Texas, passed away unexpectedly on Sunday, April 14, 2019 at her home. She was born in Crookston, MN on August 4, 1958 to Lester and Lyla (Altepeter) Johnson.

Cynthia enjoyed chatting with friends and family, playing bingo, doing board puzzles, and most of all spending time with her daughters and spoiling her grandchildren: Aaron, Rexalynn, Callie, and Olivia. She was very caring, kind, and loving to everyone she met and will be deeply missed and never forgotten.
