In October 2004, Cynthia received her Certified Funeral Service Practitioner (CFSP) designation, awarded by the American Academy of Funeral Service. She is also the first black funeral directress
in Philadelphia to receive this award.
In 2007, the 100 Black Women of Funeral Service (BWFS) honored Emmanuel Johnson Funeral Home, Inc. as
the funeral home of the year. In 2009, our funeral home received the 100 BWFS Academy Award of Excellence in memory of Emmanuel and Lenora Johnson. A memorial tapestry, which hangs in the entryway of the funeral home, was designed in their honor.
In March of 2011, Cynthia completed and passed the Certified Pre-Planning Consultant (CPC) Course. She is not only a Certified Funeral Service Practitioner (CFSP), but she also holds CPC credentials as well. The CPC is a designation offered by the National Funeral Directors Association.
