April 12, 1958 – September 1, 2019
Cynthia "Cindy" Chubb-Tamsberg, 61, of Goose Creek, SC died peacefully Sunday, September 1, 2019 at a local hospital with family at her side.
Cindy was born on April 12, 1958, in Charleston, SC, daughter of Leona Keyser Chubb and the late G. Heyward Chubb. She was the first of three children born to her hardworking, loving, and compassionate parents. She grew up in a time when life was fun, free, and easy. Cindy was a treasured daughter, an amazing big sister, a loving aunt, a devoted wife, and a loyal friend to many.
Cindy attended North Charleston High School, but graduated from Hanahan High School in 1976. Her work history included several years at Wetterau Foods in North Charleston, and more than thirty years at Chubb Electric Service. She also contributed her time and talents to fundraising for Ducks Unlimited for many years. She was presented with a Conservation Service Award for outstanding contributions. Cindy also established the Children's Lowcountry Christmas charity. She first learned about "Country Santa" in Pumpkintown, SC, who helped thousands of poor children receive Christmas gifts. She used her fundraising skills to collect toys to donate to the charity. She began helping so much that Country Santa appointed her as his new Lowcountry volunteer. She and her many helpers shared Christmas joy with so many children throughout the Lowcountry. In addition to her volunteerism, Cindy was an excellent cook, gardener, homemaker, and shopper. She loved shopping, especially for others.
Cindy opened her heart and her home to friends and family, and as a result of her generous spirit she was loved by many. She set and example of compassion that inspired everyone who knew her. One of her favorite sayings was, "crazy 'bout you baby". Her family and friends were crazy about her, and she will be greatly missed.
She is survived by her husband, Fred Tamsberg, of Goose Creek; her stepson, Michael Tamsberg of North Charleston; stepdaughter-in-law, Cheryl Tamsberg of North Charleston; step-grandsons, Brandon and Justin Tamsberg; sister, Pamela C. Bonifay; brother, Timothy H. Chubb (Beth); nephews, Alex Bonifay and Braxton Chubb; nieces, Christina Bonifay and Megan Chubb, all of Hanahan.
She is predeceased by her stepson, Frederick "Rick" Tamsberg, Jr.; and her brother-in-law, Robert L. Bonifay, Jr.
The family is thankful for Cindy's loving and dedicated caregivers, Edna Meyers and Mary Swindell for taking such good care of her over the past few months. She loved you both dearly.

I was Cindy’s fifth grade teacher. I remember her to be a very sweet, kind, polite young lady. I am so saddened to learn of her passing. I also remember Mrs. Chubb, Cindy's mother, who was so helpful to me. My condolences to Cindy’s family at this sad time.
