Cynthia (Cindy) Haley Simon passed away at home peacefully in her sleep on September 3rd, 2021, after a 3-year battle with metastatic breast cancer that recurred following an initial diagnosis in 2013. She was just 7 days shy of her 60th birthday.
Cindy’s life would seem too short to many, but those who were touched by her understand that her existence and the imprint she left exceeded the quantity of time that she stayed on this earth.
Cindy was talented in so many aspects of her life. For the past 14 years she had dedicated herself to supporting people in their quest for health and wellness. She taught classes through senior centers, assisted living facilities, libraries and adult ed venues. She preached mindfulness through classes in yoga, meditation, nutrition and healthy eating throughout southern Maine and Seacoast NH. She had a particular fondness for working with senior citizens, exhorting them to live their best lives. In addition, she was a writing coach helping people to get from piles of notes, scribbles and ideas to publication. She herself was a published author.
Prior to that she taught psychology classes at Montgomery County and Frederick County Community Colleges in Maryland. While also being a driving force in successfully launching two children into young adulthood and beyond.
Cindy also loved to travel. Taking family adventures to The Badlands of South Dakota, Zion National Park in Utah and Cape Breton Island to name a few. Later as empty nesters Cindy and her husband Stu made memories with trips to Ireland, Iceland, Montreal, Prince Edward Island and more.
Most of all Cindy was a devoted mom. Her children were her life. A day didn’t go by without phone calls, texts or visits. She was only a “grammy” for 6 months to her first grandchild but got to cherish baby Maddy with visits and electronically through FaceTime.
Cindy is survived by her husband of 36 years Stu Simon, her daughter Bonnie Boisclair and her husband David Boisclair, her son Matt Simon, his wife Rachelle Simon and their daughter, Madison.
A memorial service will be held at Curtis Lake Church in Sanford, ME on Saturday, September 18th at 10am.
