Cindy Lou Jackson passed away at the Stettler Health Care Centre on Wed., May 25, 2016 at the age of 51. She was born in Edmonton on Nov. 20, 1964.
Cindy grew up on the family farm in the Paintearth district. She attended school in Castor and graduated from Gus Wetter in 1983.
After school Cindy moved to Edmonton to work and then later to Camrose and then to Stettler working in retail and hospitality.
One of Cindy’s greatest joys was spending time with her niece and nephew, Hannah and Levi. Cindy loved to collect. She had a substantial collection of Thomas Kincaid, Bearington Bears and Cherished Teddies, just to name a few.
She was passionate about decorating for every holiday, Christmas being her favourite. She enjoyed old western movies, particularly John Wayne.
Cindy always took pictures and videos at every family gathering, which will be cherished. And last but not least, she loved her dog, Abbey.
Cindy had a special sense of humour, a unique laugh and one liner comebacks that always made you smile. Cindy was a wonderful daughter, sister, aunt and friend that will be truly missed.
Cindy is survived by her mother Ardeth Jackson; brother Barry Jackson (Carol); niece Hannah and nephew Levi Jackson (Ashleigh Wingie); her birth brother Jeff Cameron (Connie) and their children Brittany and Breanna; special friend Victor; other family and many dear friends; last but not least her beloved dog, Abbey. She was predeceased by her father Elmer Jackson; both sets of grandparents Jackson and McConkey and her birth mother Shirley Cameron.
