I worked closely with Cindy for many years. As time went on and we shared our stories, I was struck by just how many lives she had led, and how accomplished she was. She was so multi-talented. My life is richer for having known her.

I worked with Cindy at Granite Falls High School. She wasn’t just a co-worker but a good friend. I could always count on her for help and I would do anything to help her. She was sweet, caring, considerate and had patience of steel. She had most of the ‘favorite friends’ of the office in her classes, yet she was always positive and kind. Her passion for teaching and zest for life made a real joy to be around.
I remember how excited she was when she told me her daughter was going to have a baby. She couldn’t wait to be a Grandma. She really loved her family and we would share our pictures together and talk about the kids. I so enjoyed going down to her classroom to chat. Even after I was not working with her I would visit and we still would pick up right where we left off, sharing pictures and stuff.
I will miss you Cindy!

Loved... just loved working with "Cindi Lou Who" at Granite Falls High School! She was always the one with a twinkle in her eye and a story or email pick-you-up right when you needed it. She worked with some of our toughest clients and always kept her sense of compassion, social justice, and most of all humor! We were in a book club for awhile years ago and she was often the only one that actually read the book! She was so smart and insightful. Most of us were more into drinking wine and pretending we knew what she was talking about......she was onto the shenanigans, but put up with us anyway.
We once took a group of her students to the U.W. Seismology lab together. She whispered to some of our 'too cool for school' kids lingering out in the hall to jump up and down to see if they could get the siesmograph to make some lines! It drew them into the lab without any of them knowing she was in charge....a real pro!
She often shared pictures, from Holly, of her grandkids . Cindi was a doting grandma and rightly so! I know you all are hurting and missing her terribly. Please know, she was loved by many and her contributions to greater humanity live on in all of us... but especially you, her beloved family.
Sincerely,
Nancy and Tom Matlack
