  • To Cindy’s Family-
    Sending you prayers of comfort and peace. What a special woman she was. She loved you all dearly and was dedicated to her animals. She was way too young for this to happen. May she rest in eternal peace.

  • To Debbie, Brenda, Kim, and Bill, and the Wattenschaidt family,

    I am so very sorry to hear of Cindy’s passing. I am also sorry for the heartache you must be facing now. Cindy was my “good buddy” for many years and we shared many happy, memorable times. I always enjoyed visiting with you fine folks around your kitchen table. We had some hearty belly laughs with your mom included. I am sending big, warm hugs to all of you. Cindy was one fine lady.

    Love, Janice

  • My deepest sympathy for you all! My son played ball with the boys. I always loved Cindy’s heart she had for her family and for others as well. Such a joy to be around. I hadn’t seen Cindy for a long time but thought of her when I drove by their home. Praying for strength and comfort thru this difficult time. The Estes Family!

  • Brian and Doug,
    Blessings to your family. I have many fond memories of Cindy. Notably Church outings and activities; and of course softball at Billingsley Field and cookouts at your home on Horseshoe Road.

  • I had the pleasure of working with Cindy at B.V. She made me feel welcome, like I had worked there for years even though it was my first year. My memory of Cindy will be her thoughtfulness and giving nature. Cherish the memories of her, for those memories will keep her forever in your heart. May God bless and comfort all of you.

  • Brian and Doug
    Condolences regarding your mom. I had the privilege of working with Cindy at BV Middle School where she was the secretary. I always appreciated her caring attitude toward the students, staff and myself. She had a tough job and she was very supportive to me and a great friend. I will always remember how we used to joke about WWE wrestling (Rick Flair- wooooooo!). We had some fun times and I’ll always remember her great sense of humor. Thinking of all of you during your time of loss. Take care and I’m sure we will all keep the memory of Cindy alive

  • Cindy was friendly and supportive when I was a teacher at BVMS. One year, when she drew my name for Teacher Appreciation Week, she thoughtfully put together a package of French items. Her efficiency kept things running smoothly through different administrations. I always looked forward to seeing her when I visited BVMS after my retirement. During casual conversations, she spoke lovingly and proudly of her family. She was a very special person.

  • Adding to my comments about Cindy, my condolences go out to her friends and family. May all find comfort in fond memories. of her.
