Cynthia Celeste Goodman

Cynthia Celeste Goodman, better known as Cindy age 55 of Lansing passed away on Saturday, May 11, 2024 at her home.  Cindy was born on November 23, 1968 in Havre de Grace, Maryland.  She was preceded in death by her father, Rev. Bill McMillan, her paternal grandparents, Leroy and Grace McMillan, and maternal grandparents, Will and Maude Blevins as well as two grandsons, Brayden and Elijah Howard.

Cindy was a devoted grandmother, her love for her grandbabies transcending all else. Their laughter was her melody, and their joy her greatest treasure. Whether it was sharing stories, playing or simply embracing them in her arms, Cindy's love for them knew no bounds.

Her love for horses was a passion that ran deep within her soul. Cindy always found solace and joy in the company of horses. Her love for horses was not just a hobby but a source of endless fascination and wonder.

Cindy attended the Cowboy Church of Ashe, Cindy's faith was steadfast, her spirit unyielding. In the company of her fellow believers, she found community, strength, and solace, her devotion a guiding light in times of joy and sorrow alike.

But perhaps Cindy's most cherished legacy was her infectious laughter and irrepressible sense of humor. Known for her playful banter, she could effortlessly light up a room with her radiant smile and hearty chuckle. Her laughter was a balm for troubled souls and a reminder of the joy to be found in life's simplest pleasures.

Above all, Cindy's heart overflowed with compassion and kindness. A true embodiment of selflessness, she was always ready to lend a helping hand, offering comfort, support, and a listening ear to all in need.
