Cindy, along with her family, is a member of Wesley United Methodist Church in Springfield. She was Office Manager for the Evans & Dixon-Springfield Law firm where she enjoyed many years of employment.

Cindy was known for her party planning for her family and office events.  She would always make certain that birthday parties and holidays were special.

Table Rock Lake was one of her favorite places where she and her family spent many holiday weekends.  Beaches were another passion – especially Myrtle Beach and those in the beautiful Hawaiian Islands. Cindy, Dave and the boys had a lovely and memorable vacation there in January, of 2015.  

Visitation will be 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 22, 2016 in Wesley United Methodist Church, 922 W.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations in her memory to Lung Cancer Research, The American Cancer Society, 2926 E. Battlefield, Springfield, MO 65804 or to the HavenHouse (for patients and their families who travel to St. Louis for medical care), 2685 Olive Boulevard, St. Louis, MO 63141.  Cindy would like it to be known that she was a non-smoker and that lung cancer kills more Americans than any other type of cancer.
