Obituary

STOW: Cynthia Edmonds Torkelsen, 71, of Stow, formerly of Acton and Littleton, MA, died peacefully Monday, June 22, 2020 in Concord, MA. She is survived by her loving husband of 41 years, Stephen W. Torkelsen; her brother Christopher Edmonds; and extended family and many dear friends.

She will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved her.

In accordance with Cindy's wishes, interment in Woodlawn Cemetery, Concord Rd, Acton Center is private, and a Life Celebration is planned for a later date and will be announced.

Steve, my deepest condolences. We certainly had a number of laughs while framing Cindy's beloved Inuit and nature prints. I'm sorry we didn't keep in touch after Mitch closed the frame shop. If you need anything, please reach out to us.
