Cindi worked as a nursing coordinator and certified Nursing Assistant at Geer Nursing and Rehabilitation Center for over forty years.
Cindi was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, and friend. She had a caring, selfless nature about her, and to know her was to love her. Cindi enjoyed life to the fullest and she knew how to have fun. During the summer months on the beaches of New England, you could find Cindi dipping her toes in the ocean, listening to the waves crash while reading a book, and soaking it all in.
Cindi is preceded in death by her parents William Tinker and Elizabeth Tinker (Leffingwell) and her brother Kenneth Tinker.
Cindi is survived by her husband Layne Labshere, children Amy Labshere and Jesse Cooper, Jessica Laine (Labshere) and Kristopher Laine, Joshua and Julie Labshere (LaBella), brothers William Tinker, Jr., Richard Tinker and Noreen Tinker, her grandchildren Tristan Soule, Laynie Mullen, Reece Mullen, Callie Labshere, Gunnar Laine, Jasey Cooper, Cohen Labshere and many nieces and nephews. She is survived by her best friend Lynn Miller (Coons). Her dogs Jaxon and Smidgeon, her granddogs Merida Eve, Brynnleigh, Percy, Precious, Sgt. Tibbs and Lincoln.
