After graduation, she was the recipient of The Corning Fellowship which enabled her to study and travel extensively throughout Asia and Africa. Ms. Green Warren was married to Nathaniel Warren at the Trinity Baptist Church in 1983 in Baltimore City and later divorced after more than 15 years of marriage. A 1984 graduate of Harvard Law School, Ms. Green Warren was admitted to the Maryland State Bar Association that same year.

Ms. Green Warren was devoted to her daughter who was born in 1984 and was proud to have been part of a legacy family, following Ms. Warren’s graduation from Yale in 2002. Her daughter shared that “My mom was an extremely loving person who put the needs of others above her own. She always did her best to take care of me and remind me how much she cared. She was my true confidant and gave me so much wisdom. I don’t know how I will be able to go on without her and I will miss her every day.” Cindy will be remembered by her lifelong friends as a loving, kind and brilliant person. “We are heartbroken by her death” said her college roommate Dorothy Bonnet of Germantown, Maryland.
