I just found out about Cindy's passing. I am very sorry to hear it. I had gotten to know Cindy well over the pass 12-13 years. I work at Golden Spike Realty for close to 24 years now. She was gone before I started in 1994 but My husband and I bought her twin home in sunset and sold her a home in Clearfield (was not a quick process). She was a record for me of 6 years before she bought a home. During that time I talked with her often and she taught me many things. She would call me often to make sure I was taking care of the Sunset house and reminding me of maintenance that must be done on it. We would talk about the market often. I was always amazed by her wealth of knowledge. I did end up selling her house in Clearfield and sold her the Clinton one eventually after she moved in to her other Clearfield rental for 2 years to avoid capital gains. I loved her and enjoyed our many visits over the years. She will always be in my heart. I know she had been in a lot of pain these last few years, may she rest in peace.

I am sorry for your loss. Cindy was an inspiring woman. I was a student at Marinello Beauty School when I met her. She was always kind to me and always knew how she wanted her hair done. It was a privilege to know her even though it was only for a short time.
