In her early life, Cindy loved bowling and over the course of 20 years she bowled in 3 leagues. She held the office of City Secretary for the West Monroe Women’s Bowling Association for 5 years, and even joined the bowling lane inspection team. She was a graphic designer who also enjoyed gardening, bird watching, and fishing. She was very social and loved playing card games and Pokeno for many years with a group of 12 wonderful ladies. She was pitcher for the Faith United Methodist Church softball team. In 2005, Cindy was diagnosed with a terminal illness that she would bravely fight for 15 long years. Although her activities became limited, she remained a strong woman and believer of Jesus Christ. She was drawn to Christ Church of West Monroe and remained a member for the last several years of her life. Cindy was thankful for their help, support, and the examples of kindness that they provided to her. She enjoyed the bond she had with her sister Karen throughout her illness. Cindy and Karen traveled every chance they had. They made many wonderful memories together. Cindy wanted to express her gratitude to her friends that stood by her and helped to fill the emptiness that was left when her sister Karen died.
Cindy had a full life with family and friends. She fought a long brave battle and is now pain free in the house of the Lord. Cindy will be loved and missed by many. Her beautiful smile and contagious laugh will be remembered always.
