Cindy was a devoted Wife and Mother. She stood by her husband and supported all of his

years in Rosedale, Indiana before moving to Colorado Springs, Colorado where her and

Farmington, New Mexico for a brief period before moving back to Terre Haute, Indiana

in 1979. Eventually they returned to Rosedale, Indiana where they made their permanent

residence. She was Clerk Treasurer of the town of Rosedale before retiring in 2006.

Cindy enjoyed riding on the back of Paul’s Goldwing trike motorcycle and loved to go

mushroom hunting. In their late 60’s and early 70’s, Cindy and Paul toured the United

States on their motorcycle, attending the Sturgis Bike Rally Twice, and visited several

National Parks. She was a lover of dogs, especially her latest puppy Remi. In 2019
