Obituary for Cynthia Kirchner
Cynthia Dawn Kuykendall Kirchner (Cindy) went home to be with Jesus on January 7th , 2021, at age 56, after a two-and-a-half-year battle with Breast Cancer. Cindy was born to Ronald D. and Joy G. Kuykendall on September 13th, 1964, in Chicago, Illinois. As a Child, Cindy enjoyed playing softball, harmonizing with her dad, and chocolate frozen custard.
In 1982 Cindy met Mark Kirchner at Grace College in Winona Lake, Indiana. They married in 1985 and spent the next 35 years learning from each other and growing deeper in love. They had five children, whom she raised with love, devotion, and above all a desire to share her lasting faith in the saving grace of Jesus.
In addition to being a loving wife and mother, Cindy was a proud flight attendant of nearly ten years at Southwest Airlines, where she was well known and loved for her humor, spunk, and enthusiasm. Throughout her life she was passionate about music and would harmonize with any willing participant. She used her gift by serving on the worship team at church for many years, and blessed her family with the singing of hymns and cherished songs together. She had an infectious laugh and a smile that could light up any room.
Cindy is survived by Husband Mark, Daughters Mallory (Fiancé, Stephen Misner), McKenna Cooke (husband, Jordan Cooke) and Madison. Her sons Colson and Carter and granddaughter Emory Misner, as well as her parents, mother-in-law, siblings, a large extended family.
Cindy gave her life to Jesus at an early age. Her love for and Hope in Him was evident in the way she lived and was reflected throughout her battle with cancer. Even in the end, she desired to be a light to others and that her story would be a testament of Christ’s love and faithfulness. We, her family, grieve our loss, but rejoice in her gain.
Psalm 116:1-2 “I love the Lord, because he has heard my voice and my pleas for mercy. Because he inclined his ear to me, therefore I will call on him as long as I live.”
