Cindy Gardner Obituary

Cindy Ann Gardner passed away on January 23, 2024 at the McLaren Hiland Cottage in Petoskey.  Cindy was born on June 27, 1963 in Muskegon, MI to Donald and Romaine (Tarkowski) Gardner.  While in Muskegon, Cindy attended a special education program.  The family then moved to Spring Arbor and Fenton.  Cindy attended the Elmer Knopf Center until the age of 25 and then an Adult Program in Genesee County.  After her father passed away, Cindy and her mother moved to Mackinaw City to be closer to family.

Cindy could light up a room with her smile and good nature.  She loved music, drawing, coloring, and watching the wildlife and many different species of birds that came by.  She enjoyed reading and spending time with Sabra the little Chihuahua who recently passed away.   

Cindy is survived by her mother Romaine; brother, Jeff of Attica; sister, Teresa and husband, Russell Reed of Mackinaw City and by many aunts, uncles, and cousins. 

She was preceded in death by her father, Donald; grandparents, Felix and Verna Tarkowski of Bay City, Francis Moss of Flint, and Denver and Margaret Gardner of Corunna; and by special cousin, Kim Woodhull of Flint. 

Cremation and burial are being handled by the Nordman-Christian Funeral Home of Cheboygan.  A graveside service will be held at a later date at the Lakeview Cemetery in Mackinaw City.

The family would like to extend a special thank you to the Aides and Staff at the Pinecrest Facility in Mackinaw City, Hospice of Cheboygan, and especially everyone at the McLaren Hiland Cottage of Petoskey.
