Devoted Wife, Loving Mother, and Beloved Nana.
Cindylou was called home to Heaven on February 20th at the age of 66. As a follower and dedicated servant of Jesus Christ, Cindylou volunteered with many different churches over the course of her lifetime including Providence Avenue United Methodist, Norwood United Methodist, St. Mark’s Lutheran and Hope Community Church. In obedience to Christ’s command to care for those in need, Cindylou spent countless hours volunteering with missions in Chester, Sharon Hill and Upper Darby. Professionally, Cindylou worked as a preschool teacher, a prevention specialist with Holcomb Behavioral Health Systems, and she was the owner and operator of Bushido Branches Martial Arts School. Cindylou embodied Christ’s command to “love thy neighbor.” She was a constant source of encouragement, and will be sorely missed by her family and loved ones.
Cindylou is survived by her children Joshua and Jeremiah, her daughters by marriage Holly and Bridgid, her grandchildren Lily, Evangeline, Alana, David, Joseph and Matthew, her mother Nancy, and her siblings Laurie, Chris and Cassie.
