my kids were both former students of Cynthias at will beckley. We loved her and adored her we tried to find her for many years. She was my kids favorite teacher she was kind loving and supportive to me and my kids. Im so sad to hear this news she was definitely a champion of kids. My prayers go out to her and her family!

Cyndi was very deeply loved by our family. I am so grateful we were able to spend so much time with her and call her as often as we did. We know what a gift it was to have her be a part of our world. From the moment I personally met her, she welcomed me into the family and I felt her unconditional love, kindness and support. We have joyful memories of time spent together. She was a wonderful Auntie to our son and my husband was so close to her and I appreciate that through my marriage with Jon, I was able to become close to Cyndi. What a wonderful human being who shared with us her love for her students, her kind and giving heart, her wonderful sense of humor and joyful laughter. She was always willing to help and be a part of our world. Just a truly kind loving human being that made you feel like you mattered. Those are the memories we will always have of her. We miss you so much.

Dear Janine-

It is with great sadness we are learning of the passing of Cyndi ! This comes as quite a shock as we all just saw her at our mother, JoAnn Kelly's funeral, in Las Vegas last October. Cyndi was such a huge part of our lives growing up in Las Vegas and one of the dearest friends to the whole Kelly family. Cyndi and our mother had such a special relationship and we will always remember your whole family with the fondest of memories. We are just so sad to hear this Janine and send our love and most sincere condolences !

Cyndi was the best friend that one could have. She would never hesitate to help a person out, whether it was putting in a sprinkler system or tiling a floor or any task that one had to accomplish. Her boundless energy, coupled with her great creativity were an incredible combination. She could make you fall out of a chair with her raucous laugh and bring you to tears with her acts of generosity. She was a wonderful friend and a devoted teacher. Cyndi was always up for an adventure and had friends in every corner of the world. She was up to do anything, but only did that 150 mile bike ride from Vegas to Parker Dam, AZ. once! I will love and miss Cyndi, forever. She made my life better. Maureen Powers

Dear Janine,

I'm so sorry to read of Cyndi's passing.

I'll keep checking back to find out when the celebration of her life will be held, so I can be there. I think of you so often, and my heart hurts for you today.

Much love,

This saddens us to hear. Gary and I were one of the first lucky recipients of Cyndi's beautiful stained glass installations, over 40 years ago. Gary and his dad built our custom home and Cyndi designed two iris themed stained glass pieces to flank our built in fireplace, as well as an octagon shaped red parrot for the guest bathroom.
We last saw her at Bonefish Grill and found her as funny and lovely as ever,
Our condolences to her family and friends.
