Cynthia J. Simpson 06/28/1959~04/10/2011

After a seventeen year battle with breast cancer, Cynthia Jane Simpson died April 10, 2011 in her home in Farmington, UT surrounded by her family. She is survived by her husband, Floyd James Simpson and her children: Joshua Curtis and Tori Emily Simpson, Sierra and Roy Charles Shuldberg, Arielle Simpson and Benjamin Keith Simpson. She is also survived by her parents, Roland E. and Margaret Curtis and two sisters, Anne Curtis and Virginia Curtis. Cindy was born in the pink military hospital in Honolulu, Hawaii on June 28, 1959. Dancing was one of the great loves of her life. She was a member of the Rick's College Ballroom and Folkdance teams and later danced on the Brigham Young University International Folkdance team. After graduating from BYU with her Bachelor's degree, she moved to Ogden, Utah and became a student director of the Ogden LDS Institute Folkdancers. It was in this group that she met and married her favorite dance partner, Floyd. Cindy always had a contagious love for life and service. She loved spending time with youth, in particular young women. Her husband cannot recall a year during their marriage that she missed going to Girl's Camp with the young women of the LDS church. Her love for youth extended to Davis High School Marching Band where she was a devoted "Band Mom" for four years, which included a weekly "Bread Day". All who met her felt of her love and passion for life. There was never a time when Cindy was not smiling. One of her greatest accomplishments in life was her ability to make anyone smile, no matter the circumstance, and never missing the opportunity to do so. "When you get the choice to sit it out or dance, I hope you dance."
