OBITUARY

Cynthia Jan Pollan Abernathy

January 27, 1962February 4, 2011

Cynthia Jan Abernathy, 49, of Round Rock, Texas, released the ribbons of life and slipped peacefully into the love and mystery of great nature on Friday, February 4, 2011.

Known to her family and friends as "Cyndie", she lived life with a joyful heart, a sweet smile and boundless compassion for the well being of so many. Cyndie spent her heart’s energy caring for her loving family and guiding so many during her career with the American Cancer Society.

Born January 27, 1962 in Austin, Texas, Cynthia Jan is the daughter of A.J. Pollan and Myneka Allyene (Payne) Pollan.

Cyndie is preceded in death by her Grandmother Gladys Boone whom she adored, her mother “Micki” Payne, her father A.J. Pollan and her niece, Peyton Floyd.

Cyndie is survived by her husband, Roy G. Abernathy; her two daughters, Blair and Eva; two brothers, Robert N. Floyd, and James R. Floyd, and their families, along with husband Roy’s brothers, sisters, and their families.

We pray she knows how much we love and miss her, that the shimmering light she now rides leads quickly to grace and that the great mystery of love, life and time are revealed and received with poise, a tear and a chuckle.

Cyndie's family will receive friends at a visitation between 6 and 8 p.m., Tuesday, February 8, 2011, at the Cook-Walden/Capital Parks Funeral Home in Pflugerville.

A service celebrating Cyndie's life will be at 3:30 p.m., Wednesday, February 9, 2011, at the Memorial Chapel of the funeral home. Cyndie left specific instructions for the handling of her ashes.

Honorary pallbearers are Brent Murphy, Bill Abernathy, Bill Harris, Charlie Todd, Greg Montgomery, Helmut Lowe, Rick King, Tyger Manthey, and Jason Floyd.

In lieu of flowers, Cyndie requested that donations in her name be made to the following organizations where she knew first-hand that the money goes directly to cancer care and research: The Ronald McDonald House, The Breast Cancer Resource Center, or the Lance Armstrong Foundation. The family also requests donations in her name to the Altenheim Lighthouse Hospice in Round Rock, Texas.

Cyndie was a lovely person in every way. We were friends in high school, then didn't cross paths for 25 years, when we became co-workers. We became fast friends all over again, and I cherish those more recent memories as much as the earlier ones. Cyndie was a bright light, a beacon of kindness wherever she went. She will forever be missed.

Every RFL I think of Cyndi, and even more so now. She was such a supporter and encourager of the Relays and such a voice and advocate for the ACS Survivor Committee and it's Members. Her joy, kindness and laugh will be missed. My prayers are with your family.

Dear Eva,

Through this time, I sorely wish that I could be by your side to comfort you and I wish that we were not separated because of college. I am sorry for your mom's passing. I considered her a second mom, someone who cared for me and let me hang out at your house instead of being cooped up alone at my house. I will never forget your mom and her smiling face or her sweet caring voice. You are the image of your mom and I see her in you. I am sorry I was unable to attend the services for her and be with you that day. I miss you a lot, Eva, and I miss your mom too. Stay strong and continue to smile. She's looking down at you from above and she wants you to be happy.

God bless,
Nicole <3

Eva -

I was so, so sad when I heard about your mom passing away. I remember her from Old Town and when you were in Girl Scouts. She was always such a cheerful and upbeat person. And then when the GS Troop started helping out at the Relay for Life at the Dell Diamond, we were so pleased to light the candle in her honor. We have pictures of her in our troop scrapbook walking in the survivor lap. It is never easy losing a family member, and certainly not so young. I pray that you find comfort in these emails and in spending time with your friends and family remembering your mom.

It will never be the same again because we are missing one of our sisters. What
incredible memories we have shared at so many family gatherings. Cyndie, you brought such joy to Roy's life. We will all watch over your precious family here on earth until our Lord brings you all together again.
