Cindy's Story

Text size

Life passes too quickly, so always remember what really matters. Enjoy each new day and let those you love know you love them.
It all started back on July 17, 1955, in La Porte, IN. Cindy Kay Wendt was born to Robert and Margaret Wendt. Cindy was the youngest of four sisters and older sister to two brothers. During her childhood she was often referred to as "Cinderella" by her mother.
Cindy was always proud of her son, Isaiah, and her daughter, Tiffany. She was also a proud grandmother to eight grandchildren and five great grandchildren.
She loved her entire family.
She was a lover of all animals and seemed to have a special way with them. Her little Boston Terriers, Lilly Ann, Maxie and Gina Lynn, are living proof of her love.
Cindy loved nature. She enjoyed soaking up the summer sunshine, building snowmen, making snow angels, walks through the woods hunting morels, searching for arrowheads in Caliente, riding her horse across the Vegas desert and barbeques and parties outside with family and friends. She loved wearing her leathers and taking rides on a Harley. No matter how many birthdays came she always remained young at heart.
Cindy loved her dear friends. She always seemed to make friends everywhere she went. She was so giving and caring. She did not care where a person came from, their job or social status. She pretty much sized up another person as: if they have a good heart, love children and animals then they must be alright!
Time with our loved ones on earth is never enough. You always are left wanting more. We were all given the gift of life, and one of the hardest things in life is seeing a loved one give that gift back. Cindy prepared us for this. She always reminded us that she would be with us every day through our loving memories of her.
When Cindy was asked how she wanted her life to be remembered, she said, "I want to be remembered as a person who loved and was loved. A strong person who loved her family and friends. A woman that was kind, gentle and understanding. A proud mother and grandmother."
