Cindy passed away on October 24, 1998 from internal injuries following a car accident.

Cindy is greatly missed and loved by her mother Frieda Authier of Livermore, sisters, Linda Agudo of Lemoore, Vickie Charbonneau of Livermore, brothers, Scott Authier of Coalinga, Kerry Authier of Reno. We all have such fond memories of growing up together, for a short time in South Dakota and moving to Livermore in 1965. We always had great family vacations and holidays. All the neighbors, adults and children on Maderia Way would always participate in the open field behind our house playing kick the can and hide and seek when the weeds would grow over our heads. We all had a wonderful childhood with our mom always being there after school with baked goods for every one. Boys would follow us home because they knew they would get cookies and milk. Ask Wayne Perry. Ha !!!!!!

Cindy, I love you and I miss you so much. I wish you were here to enjoy your grandchildren and still share in our lives. You are in my thoughts everyday. I know you are in a very special and safe place with dad and watching over each other.

Love always,
Your sister,

Cindy and I were best friends through our years together at Fifth Street Elementary. Unfortunately, my family moved and I didn't get to see Cindy again until we were in our early 20's. The years apart didn't seem to change our friendship. We were excited at seeing each other again and talked endlessly about our kids and where our lives had taken us. To me, she was the same sweet, pretty, and fun girl I remembered in grammar school. I have great memories of her and I playing four square, tetherball, and making sure we were in the same relay lines as the boys we liked. We even had boyfriends that were friends! Thank you, Cindy for being a part of my life, I will see you again someday.
