Salina, KS – Cynthia Cook-Richardson, 55, left her earthly family and was reunited with her loved ones in heaven on April 2, 2014. She is free from Myotonic Muscular Dystrophy and is once more the happy, healthy girl who galloped her horse, Cissy, down Barton Road, greeting the neighbors as she rode.
Cindy was a 1977 graduate of Hoosic Valley Central School and served in the United States Navy until the birth of her dear daughter, Megan (Jason) Thomas, who survives along with her precious grandchildren, Aubree Anderson and Zac Thomas of Topeka, KS. She is also survived by her mother, Lois McNulty Cook of Johnsonville; her brothers, Paul M. Cook and Aaron (Mary Hayden) Cook, both of Johnsonville; her niece, Jennifer Cook; and her nephews, Hayden and Reilly Cook. Cindy was predeceased by her beloved father, Paul E. Cook, in 2000.
Interment of Cindy’s cremains will be beside her father in St. Peter’s Cemetery in Troy. Services will be private.
The family wishes to thank everyone who sent food, flowers, cards and kind words.
Those who wish to make a donation in Cindy’s memory may do so to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, 501 St. Jude Place, Memphis, TN 38105 or the Mohawk and Hudson Humane Society, 3 Oakland Avenue, Menands, NY 12204.
