Lucinda (Cindy) Cook Hines, 72, loving wife, mother, grandmother, and friend, passed away peacefully in her sleep July 9, 2020, after a heroic battle with cancer. She was born and grew up in Natrona Heights, Pennsylvania, the daughter of Charles Royer and Jeannette Hunter Cook. She graduated from Har Brack High in 1965 and Ashland College (Ohio) in 1969. During a teaching stint in Virginia, she met her husband, Donald Bruce Hines, and was married in Hawaii on his R&R from Vietnam. The military family lived in Ohio, Hawaii, Nebraska, Illinois, Texas, and North Carolina before retiring from the USAF in Alabama. They resided in Montgomery and Wetumpka for many years before moving to Vestavia Hills, Alabama. Cindy was a home economics and art teacher, a basket maker, and a splendid homemaker who later worked at the Montgomery Area Council on Aging (MACOA) and Resurrection Catholic Missions. She was greatly loved and is survived by her husband of 50 + years; her daughter, Jennifer Brooks of Vestavia Hills; her son, Daniel Hines of Bigfork, Montana; three grandsons she adored (Eli, Henry and Gus); her sister Judy Crawford (David) of Arvada, Colorado; her Brothers-in -law, James Hines (Mary B) of Kingston, Tennessee, and Will Hines (Kay) of Greenville, Tennessee; and her niece and many nephews. Due to COVID -19, a memorial service is being planned for a future date. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to MACOA'S Meals on Wheels program or Montgomery Area Food Bank.

Audie and I knew Cindy and Don beginning in 1988 at Aldersgate UMC. We were in Sunday School Class together and later in Supper Club and a Saturday breakfast group. Their son, Daniel, and our daughter, Kellie, were 9th grade sweethearts so we visited and dined out together as families from time to time. Later, Audie and I enjoyed Alabama games, baseball games, and other special times through the years. Cindy was definitely the southern "Martha Stewart" as my daughter would call her. She made Kellie's Junior Miss dress and was hostess to Kellie's bridesmaid's brunch with Jennifer. Cindy was the ultimate creative lady who could cook and make anything! We moved north in 2012. I so miss her but know she is not suffering now. Cindy will always be in my heart. Love and prayers to Don, Jennifer. Daniel, and family from us!

Don, Jennifer and Daniel I met Cindy at Aldersgate VBS in 1990 as I was her assistant in the weaving shop. We became fast friends as Cindy and Dennis were PA people. We shared birthdays, holidays, Alabama football games and college baseball games. Cindy was Dennis’ go to person when he needed a gift for me as he knew I admired her talents. Cindy was a special friend who was loved by many and will be missed. May knowing that Cindy is no longer suffering bring you peace. I look forward to the day we can gather and celebrate her life. Love you all Janice

When our daughters, Jennifer and Kim graduated from Alabama and began working at Health South, they became good friends. Shortly after, Cindy and I and our husbands, Don and Garey, also found we had a lot in common. Both Cindy and I had been raised close to Pittsburgh, Pa. and had met our husbands who were in the service at the end of our college years. We soon became fast friends and enjoyed many good times with our daughters. We all celebrated birthdays, special occasions and many Alabama football games together! During this past year we both celebrated our Golden anniversaries together! I will miss my friend Cindy so much in the future, as I missed her not being able to be with us at a family gathering on the 4th of July this past Saturday. We enjoyed shopping, lunches and many wonderful times just talking, and I feel that an important part of my life has slipped away. We will be there for Jennifer, Henry, and Don, as life will be especially difficult for him without his beloved life partner. Cindy was so loved by us, and will be missed by so many!

Don, Jennifer and Daniel. Jo and I always thought so much of Cindy. She was always kind and cared for those in need. Jo said she was always the first to volunteer in the Senior NCO Academy Spouses group, always there early and always stayed to help clean up. We hope you all will be comforted from the many wonderful memories you shared with her.
God Bless and comfort you all.

I have many great memories of Cindy tailgating at baseball games and our supper club. She had a wonderful laugh.
