Cindy was born July 12, 1950, in Coshocton and has lived here her entire life. She was a person who loved to spend time with her family. Holiday parties, family reunions, and the county fair were some of her favorite events. She especially enjoyed visiting with her grandchildren and sharing stories with them. Cindy liked to travel to new places and one of her favorite places was the beach. She loved to watch people, she liked to sit on her porch swing to observe the traffic or even sit on a bench at the fair and take in the passing crowd. She could also strike up a conversation with any person she met and she never struggled for something to say. She was affectionately dubbed “Grandma Bitsy” as she frequently sang songs and nursery rhymes, like The Itsy Bitsy Spider, with her grandchildren. Cindy spent several years working at the Park Hotel and College Park and would often recount experiences from her time at either job. She worked hard to obtain her GED and then helped other students work towards theirs as well, working as a GED tutor.
