From this union they were blessed with three children, Noah (deceased), Roman and Silas. Cindy and Hugo made their home in Idaho Falls, Idaho, where Cindy was a homemaker. She later found her calling as a Life Skills Coach at The Development Workshop and truly cherished her time working there. She enjoyed art, painting, music and scenic drives.
