It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Cynthia Louise Waldner.
Cyndee loved life and always had a smile on her face. Her love for family was immeasurable. Her work family was so dear to her heart. Cyndee lived her life the way she wanted and that in itself showed the strong-minded, loving woman she was.
In the mid-80s, Cyndee and her son, Trent, moved from Edmonton to Vancouver B.C., where she continued her work in the medical field which she loved. She ventured back to Alberta in early 2001 where she played a crucial role in the set-up of Peace Diagnostic Imaging in Grande Prairie.
After a few years in the cold Alberta winters and missing the mountains she had grown to love, Cyndee headed back to B.C., with her partner Albert, settling in Langley. Her work at the Langley Hospital in Medical Imaging was her passion. She was well respected for her knowledge, work ethics and loyalty. She made many wonderful lasting friendships along the way.
Cyndee was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer in March 2019. So her journey to be with her Dad Harold Waldner and Brother Hal began. Her desire to live was strong, but as the disease took hold of her body, she accepted her fate and continued doing what she loved for as long as she could. Just before she took her last breath she raised her arms for us who were with her. We knew Dad and Hal had come to take her home.
Cyndee’s wish was for no funeral but to think of her when we look at the moon. Oh, how she loved the moon.
Cyndee is survived by her loving son, Trent Reisinger, whom she Loved with her whole being and was so proud of (Danya and her daughter Jordan) Mom Betty Waldner, Sister Dianna Abrams (Richard), Sister Shauna Waldner, Sister-in-Law Deb Waldner and Families. Special Friend Albert Verheyden. Cyndee’s nephew Brett was very close to her heart as well as her niece Jenna who she included in everything and was so very proud of. Jenna and Danya were the daughters she never had.
Cyndee was predeceased by two infant sisters – one in 1953 and another in 1954 – as well as her loving father Harold Waldner in 1987 and precious brother Hal in 2009.
We will never forget the day your heart stopped and ours kept beating.
We love and miss you more than words can say.
