Cindy L. Amick

February 22, 1962 ‒ July 01, 2008

Delaware, Ohio

Cindy L. Amick, 46, of Delaware died Tuesday afternoon at her residence, after a long and courageous battle with severe illness. She was born February 22, 1962 in Galion, Ohio to Donald Beach and Martha Cooper Beach. Cindy was a member of IAFF Local #3755, retiring from Concord Township Fire Department. She began her public safety career as a Delaware County 911 Dispatcher and volunteer firefighter for the Radnor Township Fire Department. In 1992, she was one of the founding members of the Delaware County Honor Guard. She then furthered her training and worked hard with individuals years younger than herself to become the first full time female firefighter/paramedic in Delaware County for Concord Township. She also was an instructor at Columbus State Community College, teaching first aid, CPR and EMS. She enjoyed music, art, hiking, traveling, darts, motorcycle riding, rappelling, and canoeing, and was a member of the Lewis Center United Methodist Church. She also enjoyed landscaping and was very proud of her pond. Cindy was blessed to be a part of 3 families; she is survived by her partner Mel Feinberg, as well as her son, Jeremy (Tara) Amick of Marysville, who is currently serving as an MP in the Army National Guard in Afghanistan; father, Donald (Virginia) Beach of Tucson, Arizona; 3 grandchildren, Joey and Cami Renicker and Tatum Amick; brother, Kenny Beach of Galion; her faithful canine and feline companions, Gryffin, Riley, Bailey, TC, and Bandit. Her second family included her brotherhood of firefighters; her only regret was finding her true calling so late in life. Finally, Cindy shared her life with an eclectic and diverse group of friends who laughed and cried with her, and supported her through all the events of her life. She made her home and her life with them and loved them dearly. She was preceded in death by her mother and another faithful companion, Max. The family will receive friends on Saturday July 5th from 11:00 am until 1:00 pm at the Rodman Neeper Funeral Home, 1510 W. William St., Delaware. A funeral procession will then form and proceed to the Lewis Center United Methodist Church, 1081 Lewis Center Rd., where a Celebration of Life Service will begin at 2:00 pm with Rev. Lou Seipel officiating and the Delaware County Honor Guard performing funeral honors. Contributions may be made to the Forgotten 4 Paws Animal Rescue, P.O.
