Text size

Cindy S. Porter, 63, of Brazil, passed away suddenly at home the morning of Aug. 5, 2017. She was born Dec. 23, 1953, in Clay County, the daughter of William "Bunk" Morris and Betty Crabb Morris.
Cindy graduated from Brazil High School with the class of 1972. Following high school, she attended Harrold Beauty Academy INC, and has been a beautician for 45 years. She was a cosmetologist and owned her own shop, "Cindy's Gals and Guys" for many years. When she retired from the everyday work at the shop she still had her shop at home, "Macie's Place". She enjoyed many loyal and close customers who became friends over the years.
As a young girl Cindy attended Epworth United Methodist Church and then later she went to Bethel United Methodist. She and Randy were currently attending Harmony United Methodist Church.
For the past 19 years, Cindy has worked at French Funeral Home, providing care to many. She took pride in providing families with the best possible care she could while helping at the funeral home. She regarded all the staff as extended family. Above all, she loved and respected her special friends Dr. Charles and Susie French, Nick French and Josh Lee.
More than anything else, Cindy will be remembered as a loving wife, mom and grandma, and special "Maw Maw". She was a loyal friend and hard worker who has left behind a huge void.
Survivors include her mother, Betty Morris, who resides at The Waters in Greencastle; her husband, Randy Porter of Brazil. They were united in marriage Dec. 17, 1983; her children, Heather D. Oberholtzer and son, Douglas W. Porter, both of Brazil; stepsons, Monte A. Porter (Stacie) of Wake Forest, N.C. and Kevin L. Porter (Tasha) of Kansas City, Mo.; grandchildren, Macie Hardman, Ayden Hardman, Christopher Porter, Jenna Porter, Kaitlyn Porter and Kara Porter; and other extended family and a host of friends, including her life-long friend, Lilli Meneely.
She was preceded in death by her dad, William "Bunk" Morris; her grandparents, Harley "Dutch" Crabb and Mary Crabb and Bessie and William Morris; and her first husband, Jim Oberholtzer in 1982.
