After several jobs with various employers both in Michigan and Washington state, Cyndi spent the last 21 years working for Corewell Spectrum Hospital in Watervliet. Cyndi enjoyed a variety of activities such as painting, knitting, crafting, hiking, canoeing and gardening. She also enjoyed spending time with her children.
