Cynthia Evon Hanson
June 24, 1957 – July 5, 2019
Cynthia Evon Hanson, or Cindy Lou, aged 62, died on July 5th, 2019 in the comfort of her home in scenic Flagstaff, Arizona. She bravely lost her 14-month-long battle with metastasized lung cancer.
Cindy was born June 24th, 1957 in Texas City, to parents Gloria Monette and Harry Lavern Smith. Cindy, a lifelong Christian, loved her family, animals, the color purple, and peanut M&Ms.
Cindy married the love of her life Roger and became a Hanson on September 5th, 1987. Later that year, they gave birth to their first-born, a daughter, Kara Nicole Hanson. Four years later they welcomed their adored son, Luke Karl Hanson, to the family. Cindy found her calling later in life and went back to school to become a Certified Nurse Assistant. She was immensely skilled at working with the elderly and said it was her honor to “walk them home”.
