01/08/1957 – 04/05/2024

Cynthia B. Humann, a cherished wife, mother, grandmother, and friend, passed away on April 5, 2024, at the age of 67. She was born on January 8, 1957, in Omaha, Nebraska, to Eldor and Leona Baden.

Cynthia’s life was a testament to love, dedication, and service to others. She was preceded in death by her parents and infant brother, Steven. Left to cherish her memory are her devoted husband, Richard Humann, whom she married on October 11, 1980, her daughters Laura (Patrick) Ona and Rachel Humann, her son Steven (Shaina) Humann, and her six adored grandchildren: Henry, Hazel, Harvey, Grayson, Benjamin, and Weston. She is also survived by her brothers David (Deloris), Mike (Susie), and Tom (Connie) Baden, as well as numerous nieces and nephews.

Cynthia graduated from Benson High School in Omaha in 1975 and went on to earn her Bachelor of Business Administration from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in 1979. Throughout her career, she excelled in various roles, including as an accountant with Conoco Oil in Ponca City, Oklahoma, and Centel Corporation in Lincoln, Nebraska. She also dedicated herself to raising her three young children before re-entering the workforce as a bookkeeper at Our Saviour’s Lutheran Church in Lincoln and later as the bookkeeper and retail manager at Finke Gardens. Her final career chapter was with Triumph Home Health Care until her retirement in July 2022.

Beyond her professional achievements, Cynthia’s true passion lay in volunteering and nurturing her community. She served as a Girl Scout leader, volunteered at her church, and dedicated her time to Randolph Elementary School, where she was a familiar face in various capacities. Cynthia’s generosity extended to her hobbies, which included reading, gardening, crafts, attending plays and musicals with her family, participating in women’s bible study and book clubs, walking, playing cards, singing in the church choir, and playing bells in the bell choir at Our Saviour’s Lutheran Church. She was also an avid traveler who completed the Passport Travel Program.

A funeral service to celebrate Cynthia’s life will be held on April 12, 2024, at 10:30 a.m. at Our Saviour’s Lutheran Church, 1200 S. 40th Street, Lincoln, followed by a luncheon. A private internment with family will follow. Memorial contributions may be made to Our Saviour’s Lutheran Church.

Cynthia B. Humann will be remembered for her unwavering love, boundless kindness, and profound impact on all who were fortunate enough to know her. Her legacy of compassion and service will continue to inspire generations to come.
