Cindy loved life and loved her family. She was quick-witted and never missed an opportunity to say something to lighten the mood in the room. Cindy will be dearly missed by all of those who knew her.
As per her wishes, there will not be a memorial service. She will have her ashes scattered by family in a special location in Washington State.
