Cynthia Ann Milano

November 1, 1958 ~ April 10, 2021 (age 62)


Cynthia Ann Milano passed away on April 10, 2021 at the age of 62.

Cynthia is the daughter of the late Marcella Lazar Califano and Felix (Phil) Milano. 

She is also predeceased by her older sister, Carol Ann (Milano) Villa and her precious black lab, Asia. 

Cynthia was a kind soul who had a tremendous heart for any animal that crossed her path of life.  After graduation from Cobleskill Agricultural & Technical College, with an Associate’s Degree in Applied Science, Cynthia pursued her dream of continuing to work with animals, and began her career training horses. Cynthia was a dedicated and accomplished trainer at Saratoga Harness.  She trained River of Glory who succeeded as Trotter of the Year in 1993, and later in 1994, Cynthia was recognized as Horsewoman of the year.  Cumulatively, she accomplished 487 wins and earned in excess of $2 million in winnings.  This was a little-known fact, as Cynthia was doing what she truly enjoyed with the animals she loved.

Cynthia leaves behind an enormous void in our hearts, and is survived by her husband, Barry Segel and her brother Philip Milano, Sr.. She was also the loving aunt to her niece, Talia (Eric), and nephews, PJ (Becky), Joel (Lisa), and Richard.  In addition, Cynthia adored her many great nephews and nieces, and her pup Bentley. The void extends beyond Cynthia's immediate family as she is survived by her extended family, many colleagues, friends, and every animal that had crossed her path. God has brought another angel home and we will soon meet again.  

A celebration of life Service will be held at 5 pm on Sunday, May 16, 2021 at Compassionate Funeral Care, 402 Maple Ave. (Rte 9 and/or Marion Ave.), Saratoga Springs, NY.  Family and friends may call from 3 pm to 5 pm prior to the service at the funeral home.
