Cindy was a graduate of Bryant University in Rhode Island where she made some lifelong friends. She went onto be a Telecommunications specialist with Towers Perrin in Philadelphia and was a teaching assistant for special needs children in Winslow Township. Cindy was an active fundraiser for the American Heart Association and had her family donating and jumping rope for the AHA. She was a passionate supporter and volunteer of Fantastic Friends, an organization which helped special needs children. She loved organizing and helping coordinate the prom every year. She loved those jobs but her true passion was loving her children and taking care of their every need.
Cindy was a free spirit and had a love for music and a creative mind for crafting and gardening. She was a voracious reader who enjoyed holding a book in her hand, people in her heart and a smile in her soul. She relished being outdoors, hiking and was an excellent swimmer. She always put others needs before her own and 49 years was not enough to know and love her. She poured herself into every ounce of those years through her dedication and love for her family and friends.
