  1. Cindy and I had been friends since around 2003 or so, a good 15 years. I met her as my client for residential habilitation. We became friends immediately! She loved to laugh and have fun, and she had a huge sense of humor. We always, always said that she was my cat’s Godmother, as I don’t have children. Every phone call would start with, ‘How is my Goddaughter?’ We went to her apartment many Christmases, to help her put up all her decorations, the tree, lights, and many ornaments. We met often at the mall for lunch together. I would give her haircuts at her apartment, share pizzas, decorate her surroundings, and I also visited her when she was at the Nursing home. Cindy never complained about all her aches and pains, remarkably. Even when she lost her leg, she still never complained. She absolutely loved to do her volunteer work; she gave so much help to so many people for decades. Cindy was one of the strongest people I have ever known! I will miss her sorely and forever. Even with her own disabilities, Cindy gave so much of her big heart to so many people. She loved being part of civil rights actions for people with disabilities. She was strong, steadfast, and loyal. Society has now lost a wonderful human being. The world is now a much poorer and sadder place without her help and enthusiasm. I love you, Cindy, and I’ll never forget you! All my love and respect, your friend Jayne

  2. I am so deeply sorry to hear of Cindy’s passing, she was a wonderful friend not only to my Mother (Lena Spadacino (desceased) who lived in the same building with her on Long Pond Rd., but, to me and my daughters when my husband was in the Unity Hospital. Always offering her help and visiting My Mother and my Husband.. I loved her big heart of unselfish giving and laughter….With my deepest sympathy to all her Family. She will always be in my prayers…Love you Cindy…Anne (Spadacino) Manville….God Bless You

  3. To Cindy’s Family,
    Please accept my deepest sympathy for your loss. I knew Cindy from school 5. She was always doing something!
    May the memories you have and the wonderful hope of the resurrection in the Bible give you comfort during this very difficult time.

  4. I lived at the same apartment complex as Cindy. I only moved in here a few years ago but she always greeted me with a ‘hello’ or a smile. I received a large box one day and she was going by when I tried to get it. I also use a wheelchair so Cindy pushed it into my apartment for me. She just seemed to enjoy helping people. She lived here a long time so I’m sure many will miss her smiling face.

  5. I will miss the joking around and the punch in the arm from you. I love cuz. Soar high with the birds in the sky Rest in Peace.

  6. To Cindy’s Family: I spent many summers with Cindy at the 1000 Islands. Our parents had mobile homes a few doors down from each other. From arm wrestling, to riding bikes to just ‘flirting’ with the boys, Cindy was a light to the day. Then I came to Unity to work 15 yrs. ago and there she was….that smiling, funny Cindy. She will truly be missed in these halls. God Speed Cindy…you are now a beautiful angel.

  7. To Cindy’s family and loved ones, so many prayers and thoughts have been with you. we met years ago when my sister Jayne Miller introduced us. there were times we would all get together at greece ridge mall and i remember when she and jayne modeled together at Christopher Banks fashion show. She was so brave in dealing with life’s challenges and all she went through. some people touch your heart forever, and like so many dear beloved no longer with us she will be loved and missed forever.
