In addition to her volunteering for Ashley Furniture, she was also a member of the Arcadia Lioness. Cindy enjoyed scrapbooking, card making, reading, camping and most importantly, the time shared with her family and friends. Cindy’s love for pets didn’t go unnoticed, as she had many pets over the years, each holding a special place in her heart.  Above all, Cindy treasured her children, grandchildren and fiancé. She could not have been more proud of her children and grandchildren, and enjoyed their time together. Cindy was a devoted friend to many and helped to create many wonderful memories for others to cherish forever.
