She was the first person I met when I moved to Beulah and after that she treated me very good at the Beulah Inn always happy when she served me and recommended the best meal to order off the menu

Roger and I are heartbroken to hear of Cindy's passing. We always enjoyed visiting with her at the Beulah Inn, as Cindy and I had known each other since grade school as well. Our deepest condolences to Ray and her entire family. RIP my friend. Love, Tanya Watts Musso

Cindy was such a kind and welcoming person she is truly missed. We shared a love and appreciation of golden retrievers. I remember getting a phone call when my golden wandered up the hill to the Beulah Inn and was taken in by Cindy and Ray until they got ahold of me. Such a small act of kindness but one that helped me get to know Cindy.

I am sadden to hear of Cindy's passing. She had been a great part of my life knowing her. Having worked for her,or a family member had, she was always there. I have many fond memories of her and the Beulah Inn where my family and I could congregate for food or spirits . I send my condolences to her husband Ray and other members of her family. Cindy will be missed.
