I had the pleasure of being one of Cindy's roomates back in the eighties, but sadly lost touch with her over the years. Looking back ,
I really admired Cindy and felt she "had it all together". I remember her outgoing personality and the warmth of her smile. My sincere condolences to her family and the many folks she has touched during her lifetime. Rest In Peace, Cindy.

Cindy worked at my health food store. She was eager to learn. She was kind and caring. She loved her mother-in-law. We would see each other occasionally and always stopped to chat. She had a beautiful smile. She will be missed. Thoughts and prayers to Jeff and family.

I worked with Cindy at Merck and she was always telling me about her flowers and veggie garden. She was always willing to help and show anyone how to do the job.It always seemed that she had a special love for her Mother in law and would speak of her often. I know she will be missed by everyone who knew and loved her.
