Marcinda "Cindi" Sue Kirchmeier

June 13, 1948November 30, 2019

Marcinda 'Cindi' Sue Kirchmeier, age 71, born June 13, 1948; beloved daughter, sister, and aunt returned to the arms of her Heavenly Father on November, 30, 2019. She was born in Mechanicsburg, PA to Niles and Jean Meyers.

Cindi is proceeded in death by both parents Niles and Jean Meyers, all grandparents, her aunt Joanne and her only sister Jan L Meyers. She missed them all very much, and we are all at peace knowing she is with them all again.

Aunt Cindi was raised in the Thurston area. She was educated in Thurston Public Schools and attended North Thurston High School. She then attend Texas A&I University receiving her Bachelors in Science and Major in History and English. Later she would return to receive her Masters in Rehabilitation Administration.

Aunt Cindi worked various jobs throughout her young life. She worked as a High school English Teacher, Life Enrichment Program Manager, Communications Officer with the Texas Highway Patrol, then settling in with Morningside here in Olympia for almost 40 years. Working at Morningside she progressed through a series of responsible positions, including Living Skills Instructor, Job Developer, Vocational Evaluator, Program Coordinator, Program Manager, and retiring as Vice President/COO in 2014. Aunt Cindi always had passion for the people of Morningside, she loved each and everyone of you so much and always praised the work that you do. I remember her saying "Do what's right and do what's good. Be kind and help others. The world can always use one more kind person".

Aunt Cindi married Arthur 'Chuck' Kirchmeier but later divorced. They still maintained a long friendship over the years. She had many friends and loved the company of each one of you. One of her closest and longest friendship/sisterhood was with Bonnie Arvan. She and Bonnie have known each other since they were in grade school. The stories she would tell were wonderful and priceless. Cindi always loved and was very fond of her friend and mother-in-law Bonnie Kirchmeier. She loved the friendship they had and Cindi cherished it very much.

Cindi loved playing cards with the ladies, family night board games, reading, watching TV. and trying various types of trivia with her great-niece Emeory; song trivia 1960's- 70's being her favorite, she always won. Cindi always had pets in her life loving each of them to the fullest. She loved to be with her dog Annabelle, and spoiled her as much as she could. She was wonderful at needlepoint, crocheting, crafting, and a pro at shopping. She also shared her love of cooking, baking, and food such as home made parfaits which she shared with her great-niece Emeory, lasagna, and pastries. Watching her show her great-niece how to measure was... unique.

Cindi deeply believed in her faith. Her life was a living example of her favorite Bible verse, Ephesians 4:32 — “And be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving one another, just as God also forgave you in Christ". She attend church very regularly and loved the presence of God in her life.

Aunt Cindi is survived by her nephew and his wife; Brian and Jamie Palmer, two great-nieces Trinity and Emeory, and one great-great-niece Presley. She is also survived by her Uncle and his wife; Don and Joanne Meyers, and two cousins Chad and Jeff and their families. Our family is small but she loved all of us unconditionally. We will miss you vey much, but know we will all be together again someday.

It was an honor to have Cindi as a client & friend. So many times we shared stories of our families. One Christmas Cindi gave me a techy gadget ( kind of knowing I like that stuff) her face when she saw how excited I was. She had a gift to get to know you. She will be truly missed. I know we will meet again.

Cindi was a wonderful person who loved others and modeled kindness and warmth. You knew she genuinely cared about you, and was characterized by helping others. Though we will miss her, we have hope we will see her again and that she is now enjoying a fuller life in heaven.

Cindy was such a sweet person. I always enjoyed seeing her when I visited Olympia. She had a bright smile and seemed forever happy. I will miss her.
