Three generations of the Feldberg family have been loyal friends of the Kennesaw State University College of the Arts for many years: Cynthia Feldberg, her son and daughter-in-law Bob and Elaine, and their son Mike. On Monday, April 4, Cynthia passed away peacefully with her family at her side.
"Cynthia Feldberg was such a beautiful person, truly a delight to know," says Joseph Meeks, dean of the College of the Arts. "A pianist and music teacher, she loved music all of her life and instilled in her entire family a genuine love for the arts and a desire to be active pillars of the community. We will miss her smiling presence in the future, but we are so grateful for all she has meant to our community and to the College of the Arts."
Several years ago, the Feldberg family established the Cynthia Feldberg Piano Scholarship Endowment to benefit the KSU School of Music. In lieu of flowers, they have requested that gifts be made to this endowment in Mrs. Feldberg's memory.
To make a gift to the Feldberg endowment, checks should be made payable to the Kennesaw State University Foundation with "Cynthia Feldberg" in the memo line and sent to:
Kennesaw State University
College of the Arts
1000 Chastain Road #3101
