Cindy was born Feb. 16, 1952, in Williamsburg, Iowa, the daughter of Martin and Jo (Mente) Beer. Upon their arrival, she and her twin sister, Connie, were the joy of the family. Moving to Iowa City in 1954, Cindy graduated from Iowa City High School in 1970. She attended the University of Iowa and received a diploma from Kirkwood Community College.
Cindy loved horses. She took great delight in the dressage of exhibition and riding.
She always enjoyed gardening, but her family was her joy and she loved family gettogethers. This was especially true about the holidays, especially Christmas and Easter.

Cindy was preceded in death by her grandparents; her maternal twin sister, Constance Beer Kinney; and an infant brother, Michael Beer.
