This world is much colder, darker, lonelier and infinitely less interesting but Heaven has a bright new light in the form of an angel. My beautiful wife of eleven years no longer suffers the afflictions that brought her so much pain for so many years. Cynthia Peoples May was called to be with God June 16, 2012. She was already an angel here on earth as those whose lives she touched will testify.
Cindy taught in the Catholic schools system for more than 20 years. The love she gave to all her kids, as she called them, will be missed and remembered.
She was always the one that would volunteer to help. She never minded staying late to assist one of her students in the learning process.
She was the Student Council Sponsor at St. Vincent’s School and was the driving force behind almost every dance and fundraiser. She had also been a teacher at St. Clare’s and St. Paul’s Schools in Scranton.
She was incredibly intelligent and her zest for life had no equal. A mother, teacher, a best friend and a loving wife she wore all of those hats with beauty and ease. Cindy, “Cinderella, ” as her grandfather referred to her, will be sorely missed by family and friends alike.
Cindy leaves behind her husband Glenn May, daughter Erin Schuman and her husband John, son Brian Murtaugh and his wife Taylor, step daughter Ashley Davenport, step sons Christopher May and his wife Angela and Lowell May, her mother Florence Peoples, brothers Dennis Peoples and his wife Debbie and Ken Peoples and his wife Cathy, sister in law Lea Peoples and multiple nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her father Wilmer Peoples, brother Dave Peoples and niece Laura Peoples.
As per her request there will be no viewing or memorial services.
Anyone wishing to remember Cindy with a gift is asked to donate books to their local library or to make a contribution to the Nature Conservancy.
We will be together again, my love.
