Cynthia was born Sept. 23, 1950 in Arcadia and entered into rest Feb. 25, 2017 in Shreveport. Cindy was a beautiful, sassy, deep dimpled little girl who grew up in Minden except for a brief time in Arcadia. She was an avid swimmer and later a stunning majorette in Arcadia High School. From a very young age, during a time when women were leaving the home for the workplace, Cindy’s greatest desire was to be a splendid homemaker. She met the love of her life, Donnie at 17 and they married exactly one week after her graduation from Minden High School (respecting her mother’s firm request). It wasn’t long until their “beloved firstborn” arrived, Kimberly Cascile, followed just two years later by their “baby,” Donna Jo.
A faithful wife that traveled with Donnie all over the U.S., she always wanted her family to be together. Sewing, bowling, cooking, home decorating, traveling and shopping were things she dearly loved to do. She had impeccable taste and enjoyed the finer things but nothing compared to the love she bestowed upon her family. Extremely protective of every child and grandchild, she truly thought they could do no wrong. She was a devoted friend like no other, and she had unbelievable love and respect for the ministry. Stemming from a lineage of prayerful women, she was a friend of God, and talked to Him frequently on her family’s behalf.
