Cynthia “Cindy” Renee (Stewart) Moore, of Brownsburg, went to her Heavenly home at 11:30 p.m. Monday, Dec. 11, 2017, with her husband and son by her side at Franciscan Hospice House in Indianapolis, following a battle with lung and brain cancer.
A memorial service for Cindy will be conducted at 11 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 30 at the Church@Main, 1500 E. Main St., Brownsburg, IN 46112.
During Cindy’s journey, she witnessed to anyone and everyone she felt needed words of encouragement. It never mattered that she’d never met the person or probably would never see them again in this life; she would share her love of life and God’s Word.
She could also make family, friends and total strangers smile after just a few minutes with her. She will be greatly missed by many.
Cindy was born in Columbus to James and Wilma (Joy) Stewart on May 8, 1965. She was raised in southern Brown County, the youngest of seven daughters.
She attended Van Buren Elementary School, Brown County junior and senior high schools and graduated BCHS in 1983. She furthered her education at Indiana State University, earning a degree in accounting in 1987.
She also met the love of her life, Jeff Moore, while attending ISU. They were married in Columbus, Indiana on March 11, 1989.
Cindy worked the past 12 years for Denver Abernathy and Tony Valle at Promethius Consulting. Denver and Tony were more like brothers to her and were most generous during her illness.
She, Jeff and son, Joshua attended the Church@Main with Pastor Rodney Rice and a very loving congregation.
Cindy is survived by her husband of 28 years, Jeffrey; and their son, Joshua, both of Brownsburg; her father- and mother-in-law, Ronald and Alice Moore of New Castle; brothers- and sisters-in-law, Andrew and Kellie Moore of Indianapolis, David and Rozel Moore of Keller, Texas; her sisters, Sherry (husband, Don) Overholser of Brown County; Anna “Susie” (Stewart) Sprague of Jackson County, Indiana; Margaret “Carol” Stewart and Brenda (Stewart) Badger, both of Brown County; Marjorie “Margie” (Stewart) Miller of Ellettsville; and Teresa “Terry” Stewart of Brown County.
