Cyndy with a “y” has moved on after a brief, and to a former public health nurse, complex and challenging set of illnesses. That “y” in Cyndy meant a lot of things to those who knew and loved her: “youthful” — always daring to try new things; “yearning” — for knowledge and adventures; and “yippee” — ready for fun, whether that meant the next trip, recipe or dirty joke. Cyndy with a “y” also meant “y not!” Why not head to the east coast on a VON scholarship? Why not fall in love with Jim Reycraft, a young lawyer twice your height? Why not move from comfortable Richmond Hill to a farmhouse in Grey County (an image of which is in the dictionary under “drafty”)? Why not become the doyenne to her beloved neighbours in Creemore? Ribald but never crass; literate without an ounce of snoot; affable but comfortable with solitude, Cyndy with a “y” has left, as she once put it, “this side of the turf”, to join her husband Jim and her brother Peter Godbold.
Her kids, Mary Jane (Bob Espey), Susie (Bill McLeod), Jenny (Brad Rains) and Peter-Michael, her grandchildren, her brother Ian Godbold and her “belle soeurs” Louise and Norma, invite you to a memoryal (with a “y”...) which will be held at a later date.
Although Cyndy was a self-professed Luddite, she possessed a social connectedness that would put Facebook to shame. She interwove people and never lost touch with her multiplicity of cohorts. In her memory, donations may be made to the Creemore Horticultural Society or the Collingwood General and Marine Hospital (Equipment Fund).
Thank you to Johnny Mac for crafting this obituary. In Cyndy’s honour, please clip and share.

When we had our first child in 1980, Candy was the health nurse who followed up in our home. She was great! She was so down to earth and knew how to make a first time mom comfortable. She used to stop in,... just because, and when I was very ill six months later, she came by to see how I was doing. She was a true, caring , nurse in every sense of the word.

Ian, Natasha and I have so many amazing memories of Aunt Cindy! One of our favourites would be celebrating my parents (Ian and Louise Godbold) 40th wedding anniversary in Nova Scotia! She was the life of the party! Also my parents 50th in Wasaga Beach!
We love you so much Aunt Cindy!

We fell in love with, and bought, Cyndy’s property on 12/13 Sideroad during the winter of 2012. You can’t imagine our delight that Spring, when all of Cyndy’s blooms burst forth. Apple trees, cherry trees, lilacs, daffodils. It was heavenly. We always enjoyed running into Cyndy in town and hearing about her travels and adventures and getting caught up on town “goings on”. We welcomed Cyndy to pick currants and she would always return with jars of jam. Our fond memories of Cyndy will forever live on in the beautiful flowers, shrubs and trees that we are surrounded by. Our thoughts are with her family.
