Cindy was very devoted to her family and felt blessed to be a stay-at-home mom and eventually a babysitter for her grandchildren, Emery and Ella, whom she loved so dearly. She will be remembered for being a master cook, for her love of crafting and playing games with her family, the countless hours spent in happy activities with her family and friends, and taking care of all who needed her. The love she gave made these her greatest achievements. She was beloved by all who knew her. Her joyous spirit will live on in many.
