Cindy Sue Bridgewater, born in Bozeman, MT on January 27, 1953, passed away on October 31, 2020 in Great Falls, MT.
She had been ill for a time and just could not stay with us any longer. Her family and friends lost a very special person that day and she will be greatly missed.
Cindy only lived in three places in her life: Bozeman, (62 years) where she was born, went to school and worked, Gardiner for 2 years, and Great Falls, (3 years) where she moved to be closer to family as her health declined.
Cindy’s work places included the Yellowstone Park Company in Gardiner, the State 4H Office on the campus of Montana State University, Bozeman, as one of their secretaries. She spent a good portion of her career working as the Administrative Assistant to the Dean in the College of Engineering at MSU-Bozeman. Following her retirement from MSU, she worked for a short time for Choice Pointe Technology, also in Bozeman. Cindy made many friends through work and was a very respected part of any office she worked in.
Cindy enjoyed many hobbies including embroidery, cross stitching, ceramics, reading, photography and calligraphy. She was a member of the Red Hat Ladies Society while living in Bozeman. She was also a member of Grand Avenue Christian Church and even worked in their office for a short time. Cindy was a very social person and spent a lot of time meeting friends after work.
Cindy is survived by two sisters: Sherry Lynn Bridgewater Crone of Fredonia, KS, Melody Ann Bridgewater Skogley (Jeff) of Cascade, MT: nieces Rene’ Kathryn Crone of Memphis, TN, Amy Joyce Crone Lell (John) of Fredonia, KS and Jennifer Suzanne Skogley of Helena, MT: and nephew Aaron Gillespie Williams (Maggie) of Memphis, TN.
Preceding Cindy in death include her parents Loretta Alberta Gillespie Bridgewater, Orvaill Wayne Bridgewater, grandparents Nettie Peterson Gillespie, Arthur S. Gillespie, Christopher C. Bridgewater and Esther V. Holman Bridgewater.
Cindy continued to be a giving person even in death as she was a registered organ/tissue donor and donated her corneas so that someone else could have the gift of sight.
Cindy Sue Bridgewater touched all of us and we will remember her goodness always.
