Cindy’s favorite quote from her favorite movie Shawshank Redemption: “I guess it comes down to a simple choice, really. Get busy living or get busy dying!” And Cindy didn’t have time for dying! An avid gardener who spent most of her days working in her beautiful flower and vegetable gardens with much help from her beloved pets Autumn and Hope and before their passing’s, Gracie her service dog, Lucy and Ethel her goats and Faith the cat all milling about the back yard “helping her get the jobs done.”
In addition to gardening, Cindy loved sunflowers, dragonflies, the color pink, Fettuccini Alfredo (Paul’s Pasta) and Harkness Memorial where she spent many times reflecting in the beautiful gardens and on the beach.
A Celebration of Cindy’s Life will be held for family and friends on September 29th at Filomena’s, 262 Boston Post Rd, Waterford CT from 12:00 - 3:00pm.
