Friendship Community, a Christian ministry, was a very important part of her life for 40 years. Cindy enjoyed all the years she lived at Friendship, and the other individuals and staff became like family to her.

EARS Ephrata Area Rehab Services has been a part of Cindy’s life since 1985. There she enjoyed putting puzzles together, crafts, games, and field trips.

Cindy loved her family, her loving caregivers, attending church, going to Black Rock Retreat, pets, music, Curious George, and coloring.
