She is survived by her daughter Erica, son Matthew, grandson Shane, four sisters, many nieces and nephews and great nieces and great nephews, and her beloved dog Butterfly. Cyndi was previously a navy wife for 20 years, and left behind a lifetime friend, and father to her children, Bruce. She was a dedicated mother, but had found a special kind of joy in being the best Grandma she could be to her grandson Shane. Cyndi was a survivor and a fighter. Her strength helped others find their own strength and hope, especially fellow cancer warriors. Cyndi loved to travel, was recently blessed with a beautiful trip to Hawaii. Cyndi positively impacted many lives everywhere she went. She had a genuine love for the ocean, a place that brought her peace. As per her request, there will be no official service, however, next year her children and family will be scattering her ashes in the ocean, respecting her final wishes. “She was beautiful, but not like those girls in the magazines. She was beautiful for the way she thought. She was beautiful, for the sparkle in her eyes when she talked about something she loved. She was beautiful, for her ability to make other people smile, even if she was sad. No, she wasn’t beautiful for something as temporary as her looks. She was beautiful, deep down to her soul. She is beautiful.” -F. Scott Fitzgerald
