Cynthia Burgess Alldredge

February 3, 1952September 10, 2019

Cynthia Burgess Alldredge, 67, returned home to our Father in Heaven on September 10, 2019 Cindy was born on February 3, 1952 to Clive and Joan Palmer Burgess. She is the oldest child and only daughter with 4 younger brothers. Cindy grew up in St George Utah. She attended West Elementary, Woodward Junior High, Dixie High School, and Dixie College. In high school she was active in Spanish Club, German Club, and Pep Club. Cindy enjoyed learning and school. She had a very close group of fun-loving friends that made her world very fun. She loved her graduating class and was very active in keeping them in touch with each other. Cindy was active in church throughout her life. As an adult in church, she taught Primary, Sunday School, Relief Society, and subbed in Seminary. She served as Primary President and Relief Society Councilor several times. She served a 3-year mission for the LDS Family History Center, then joined her husband Mike on a full-time mission in the Ohio Columbus Mission from November 2016 to July 2018. She loved her missions and helping people. Earlier in life, she worked in the extraction program to ensure records were available to everyone. Cindy loved Genealogy and ran several websites to share family and county information. She loved to take old journals from our ancestors and transcribe them into books so that all could read them. Cindy loved to make cloth dolls, she entered them into contests and made them for shows and special occasions. They are all beautiful and unique. She loved her family’s ranch and spent as much time as possible there until leaving St. George. When she came back to visit, she always wanted to be there. It was a very special place to her. In 1988, she moved to Kirkland, Washington and in 1999, to Snohomish, Washington. She loved the beauty of the Northwest and loved her yard with her Koi, flowers and plants. Cindy loved to travel and take genealogy focused trips; she went many times to see the places and circumstances where her ancestors lived. She recently took a bucket-list trip where she was able to go to the Isle of Man and see the places she had spent her life studying. Cindy and the love-of-her-life, Mike, had a love story that inspired all of us. They were a true example of unconditional love. Many people have reached out to us to share their stories of how they were helped and welcomed into their world and given love when they needed it. The defining characteristic of Cindy’s life was love. She loved people, adventures, learning, creating, and most of all, her family. She was incredibly intelligent and wanted to be a force to teach and make a difference in all things. She was an early adopter with technology and was always learning the “newest thing”. She was a reader and instilled a love of reading in her family. She taught us about the world, one story at a time. She is survived by her husband: Michael. Her parents: Clive and Joan (Palmer) Burgess. Her brothers: Joe (Beverly), Ed (Lori), Keith (Ila), and Mark (Kathy).

ADD A MEMORY

We recall with tenderness as we write of our memories of shared experiences in the Ohio Columbus Mission. Your special tenderness with our missionaries resulted in the overall spirit of the mission itself. We often recall the special assignment to you and Mike with a special young elder who needed special care, and he blossomed under your care. You were then transferred to the mission office, somewhat apprehensive, nevertheless you forged ahead in learning the important responsibilities you were sent to perform. You showed yourself to be an amazing and talented woman, and we will be forever grateful for our time together in Ohio. Until we meet again, all our love to Mike and the family.

We cannot adequately describe our love and gratitude for Cindy & Mike Alldredge. They immediately came to our rescue when we began serving our mission in "The Great" OCM. Cindy worked tirelessly to complete mission administrative duties, often working late into the night. Cindy and Mike would drive anywhere anytime to help a missionary. A very Christlike example to everyone!! Isn't it Ironic that Cindy & Mike's granddaughter Josie would battled cancer while they served. We watched Cindy plead with the Lord on behalf of Josie. Our missionaries were blessed to be able to participate in a special fast for Josie. Witnessing that miracle will always be one of our special memories. Who would have known that just two years later Cindy would loose a battle with the same disease. Although you've completed your service as full time missionaries the joyous memories of Cindy & Mike Alldregde live on, in our life, and the life's of hundreds, of current & former missionaries. We all Love you and continue to pray for you.

We will forever be grateful to have known Cindy and Michael as they served in the Great Ohio Columbus Mission. We were touched by Cindy's great love and devotion for both her Heavenly Father her family. She served diligently with great faith that her family would be blessed. Cindy's tender heart influenced many young missionaries as she nurtured them in their service. We were impressed by her ability to share her many talents as well as her willingness to be stretched and try new things. Our hearts and prayers go out to Michael and family as you mourn the absence of an incredible Daughter of God.

We will forever be grateful for the devoted and selfless service you both offered in Cambridge and in the office in Ohio. We love you, and will greatly miss Cindy. Our prayers and faith for comfort are with you always. Cindy was so joyful and happy. She had a contagious laugh and made all around her happy. I am certain her mansion in heaven has a sewing machine in it.

"Sister Alldredge" is and was the most amazing wonderful friend and person. She is a great example and a person of great faith. There is no one that will ever match her ability to recognize a need, reach out to help, and effectively love and minister to those she knows. Our heart goes out to you Michael and your family. We are sorry we are so far away. Thank you for all you have done and do.
