Cynthia (Cindy) Herceg

January 12, 1949 - March 13, 2016


Cindy passed away Sunday, March 13, surrounded by her family and lifelong friend Margaret, after a long and courageous battle with breast cancer. She will be lovingly remembered by Ljubo, her husband of 50 years, children Michele, Melinda (Brian) and Paul (Darrell), grandchildren Chantelle (Vanni), Michael (Melissa), Aaron (Jen), Brandon, Declan, Delaney and Danae, Stacie (Tony), Eddie (Allison), Ryan (Shalene), great-grandchildren Marlan and Marshall, Liam and Jordyn, her father Nijas and sisters Teresa and Sharon. Cindy was predeceased by her little brother Jeff and mother Mickey.

Cindy was born in Vancouver, BC, on February 12, 1949. She remained in Vancouver until she met the love of her life, Ljubo. She and Ljubo married in 1966 and soon after began their family. The couple moved to Powell River in 1967 for Ljubo's work and never left. Cindy enjoyed taking frequent trips to the city to visit family but never wanted to live anywhere else.

Cindy’s lifelong passions included gardening, sewing and home decorating. She was a voracious reader and made sure to instill a similar love in all of her children. Nanny was also known for her love of cards and would spend hours patiently playing with her grandchildren. She showed her love for her family through food and was always coming up with new additions to the holiday menus.

Cindy was a bright, articulate and determined woman. Her strength was never more obvious then during her three-year battle with breast cancer. Cindy fought hard to be able to spend more time with those she loved. She was able to spend her final days at home surrounded by the people she loved and the flowers she so cherished.

The family wishes to extend a special thank you to the staff at Powell River General Hospital, the oncology unit and home care nursing for the wonderful care they provided to Cindy over the past several years. No service by request.
