Cindy Lynn Lowdermilk

Cindy Lynn Lowdermilk, 60 passed away December 6, 2015 with her family by her side. She had battled cancer for the past year with grace, laughter and spirit, but her struggle ended and she is re-united with her husband and daughter in Heaven.

Cindy was born March 1, 1955 in Putnam County, the daughter of Kenneth and Dorothy Campbell Burns. She attended grade school in Poland, and then graduated from Brazil High School, Class of 1973. She worked at the Thomas and Thomas Law Firm and then later she was the office manager for the County Highway Garage until her illness and treatment became too difficult.

Cindy married Darrell Lowdermilk on April 7, 1979 and together they raised their three children in Clay County. Darrell died suddenly in 1993 and Cindy successfully raised their children with wit, strength and unwavering love. She never missed a ballgame, athletic event or 4-H project. The kids never wondered who would be picking them up or whether she would get to see them through their endeavors, because mom definitely would be there. Cindy had a close group of friends and cousins that got together routinely for lunch or dinner. She always insisted on paying her own way and was known to be fiercely independent. Time spent with family was her priority always and she was known for her kindness under adversity.

Cindy had attended the Clay City United Methodist Church. She also enjoyed spending time at the 4-H exhibit hall just visiting with people.

She was preceded in death by her parents; her father in law, Gerald Lowdermilk; her husband Darrell Lowdermilk in 1993; her daughter Natalie Lowdermilk died in 2004 from cancer.

Survivors include her children, Dr. Troy Lowdermilk, DVM and wife Stacy of Center Point and Emily Hodge and husband Ryan of Columbus, IN; grandchildren, Sydney Lowdermilk, Chase Lowdermilk, Caitlin Hodge, and Drew Hodge; sisters, Marsha West and husband Tom of Poland, and Rita Dierdorff and husband Mark of Brazil; brothers Lloyd Burns and wife Mary of Center Point and Wayne Burns and wife Marilyn of Brazil; mother in law, Elenora Lowdermilk; several close cousins and many nieces, nephews and extended family.

Services will be held Friday at 11:00am at the Lawson-Miller Chapel, 1702 E. National Ave. Brazil, with Pastor Steve Rundel officiating. Music will be provided by Steve McCullough. Burial will follow at Mt. Calvary, VanCleve Cemetery. Visitation will be Thursday from 4-8 and again Friday prior to services.
