Cynthia (Cindy) Marie Butler Born 12/16/1954 Pensacola Florida Died 01/31/2020 Dallas Texas

Cynthia was a beautiful lady known as Cindy or Mom.

Cindy was born on December 16th 1954 to her parents Peggy and Huey York of Pensacola Florida. She is survived by her husband Al; and her two boys Brian and Patrick. (Both of these boys were adopted at birth) and she is survived by Patrick’s wife Hannah who she thought of like a daughter THAT we never had. Cindy is also survived by her sisters, Malinda and Becky and her brother in law Frank. She loved her family and friends so much and she loved to spend time with everyone. She wanted to take care of everyone, and worked hard to make sure everyone was happy.

Cindy’s Life: Cindy went to Keys business college and graduated as a medical transcriptionist. She met Al and She proposed to her husband, Al. They were married in Norfolk, Virginia in 1975. Cindy and Al traveled the world with the US Navy and this is how they were able to adopt their two sons. Al was away from family (while in the US Navy) for over twelve years onboard ships and or in combat areas. Cindy was the father, the mother, the leader of the household; she took care of everything while Al was away. And she actually raised these excellent boys by herself and kept all of their and Al’s lives in order; never ever thinking of herself.

Brian was adopted in Pensacola Florida and Patrick was adopted in Olongapo City Philippines. These boys along with Patrick’s wife Hannah were the love of her life.

Al and Cindy lived with Patrick and Hannah in a new house and moved in last year; and she actually managed as it was being built and after we moved in; Cindy was always took care of everything; her ailing husband with all of his medical issues; his many medications (Cindy was a pharmacy technician also); the laundry, the shopping, the cooking. She wanted to make sure the dinner meal was prepared and waiting for Patrick and Hannah every day. SHE was and is everything to us; she did not ask for anything but she gave everything and she loved everyone even strangers on the street. She was an angel on earth.

Brian her oldest son lived in his own house about fifteen miles away; but that did not stop mom from caring for and helping him out; if Brian needed anything she was there; if he needed care or his pets needed care; Mom was there; Anything needed Mom was always there to go and help him at any time or any hour. Brian has a girlfriend Sharee and Cindy really loves her and hopes that Brian and her will stay happy together can find true love. She was so proud of Brian with his hard work at Lockheed Martin; the only thing that she worried about Brian, PJ and Hannah was that they all worked too much and never got enough rest.

We can’t forget that she had another family she loved so much and they were her cat (Sheldon) and four little chihuahuas; they are Sierra, Mr. Bailey, Funny Boy and Lady Bug. She took care of these pets as she did to her family; feeding them, cleaning their room; picking up for them; and taking them to the doggie spa and the Vet when needed. But most of all she made them all very happy by loving them and making them feel needed. They will miss our angel too.

Cindy had planned out this year 2020 for traveling. We were to travel with Malinda and Frank to visit Florida and relatives there and we were to stay on the beach. Then we all would be traveling to Kentucky and stay at a resort on the lake and visit with relatives. She also wanted to drive to Massachusetts and visited the relatives on Al’s side of the family. If we had enough time the rest of the year, she wanted to take a cruise in the Caribbean. We are so sad that she will not be able to make these trips. This year started out so happy for Cindy. We found out excellent news; that Patrick and Hannah are expecting their first child and oh how exciting this was to both of us. She was beyond happy for them and for us to be able to spoil this grandbaby and be grandparents. Cindy was going to be Nana and Al was to be Pawpaw. We were and are so happy. She had a big list of things that we would have to do.

Finally, there were items that Cindy did not really like but she supported and did with us anyway like Fishing and going to action movies. She loved to take road trips to wherever and stop at Buc-ee’s. If she did not go fishing, she would make sure we were dressed right that we had drinks and food and if we did not forget anything. She would come outside and wave good bye to us as we left the house; as she did everyday of our lives when we went to school; went to work; or left on a trip. Cindy was always there.

Cindy loved bowling and being on the lady’s league. She started over twenty years ago. And always on Wednesday. Every place we moved too; she had to be on this lady’s league. She shared with us every night about her bowling; how many strikes she got; and what the standings were for her team. She was so proud of this one thing that she had for herself. She made a lot of friends here and so enjoyed these days.

There then was an item so important to her as important as her family. It was her church Tate springs and church family. Cindy has been going here for the last eighteen years. She was part of a Sunday school class run by Terry and Donna who she loved very much. She made a lot of friends at Sunday School and she always talked about Ann and her family. She was sad a few times as the class lost some members or partners that went to God. I know that she will always be with them at Sunday School for the future. She prayed all the time and accepted Jesus into her life. The Church completed Cindy.

To this lady, this angel, this mother, this sister, this friend, this caregiver we will miss her greatly and not know how we will get through life without Cindy. But we know she will always be watching over us and giving us advice and direction. We know she is in heaven with God and her parents. Cindy, mom, will you please rest in peace. And know how much everyone loved you. Though we will miss her greatly, we rejoice in Cindy’s triumphant return to her Heavenly Father.

Cindy was my snowflake. That was my name for her. She was the most giving person that I know. Giving to family and relatives; giving to her church; giving to her ladies bowling leagues. Giving to my naval command personnel. Giving to charity organizations; to just names-less people she met on the street. She cared about everyone; and she never asked for anything. She is an angel on earth . I love you snowflake.
