Cyndigirl had a personality like no other, she was one of a kind. The second you saw her, you were laughing even if you didn’t feel like it because she had a hilarious sense of humor and seemed to know how to zero in on your funny-bone. Cyndi loved her children with all her heart and was just starting to be the best Koko in the world. Her grandchildren are her pride and joy. She had the courage to face anything and would have done anything to protect them, and will surely be watching over them. Cyndi had a very special bond with her nieces and nephews, she always told them “you’re my babies too”. Cyndi’s ultimate career dream job was to be the first female Chief of the Assembly of First Nations so that she could help First Nations People – she used to always say, “I want to rule the world with an iron fist” with her fist in the air. Her hilarious sense of humor is something we all loved, but she always knew when was the right time to get serious in order to get her business done, both at the home and the workplace. Cyndi lived life to the fullest; enjoying every moment life had to offer.
A Wake and Prayer Service was held September 10, 2012 at the Yorkton Friendship Centre, Yorkton, Saskatchewan with Ricky Flamont officiating. The Funeral Service was held September 11, 2012 also from the Yorkton Friendship Centre with Cyndi’s cousin, George Cote officiating. The Interment followed at the Yorkton City Cemetery with Earl Gordon, Wayne Gordon, Dwayne Swiftwolfe, Jesse Hunter, Buddy Gordon and Buddy Gordon Jr. serving as casket bearers. Honorary pallbearers are all of those she shared laughs and happy times with.
