Obituary: Cynthia Louise Long Pearce

Sept. 16, 1953 ~ Nov. 20, 2021

Your Hug Meant the World

No one else held us so tight

Or made us feel better, and oh, so all right

No one’s eyes shined and sparkled so bright

No one’s heart radiated as much love

As our Mom, who is now flying high above.

The world lost a beloved mother, Cynthia Long Pearce, on Nov. 20, 2021, in Rangely, Colorado. She entered the world on Sept. 16, 1953, in Hayden, Colorado. Born to John Theron and Loretta Mae Wood Long.

Cindi was the “baby girl” of the family.

Cindi worked many jobs in her lifetime, but being a mother was her greatest and most rewarding achievement.

Cindi loved to do her crossword and crypto quip puzzles.

She loved her TV gameshows, the Price is Right and the Wheel of Fortune, and always watched her “stories” (soap operas).

She rarely missed watching her favorite football team, Denver Broncos, play.

Cindi loved to garden, nature and the outdoors, especially camping and fishing!

She loved music and laughter. She was always telling jokes; her favorite one was about “Moth Balls.” She had the best sense of humor. She loved animals and always had at least one to take care of. Above all, she cherished and adored all of her family and her granddaughter!

Cindi is survived by her dear brother George (Diane); her son, Nathan Pearce; her daughter Laura Dunkle; her son Shane Dunkle; her daughter Kristina Galvin; her granddaughter Olivia (peanut) Dunkle; her nephews Roger (Amy); Israel (Jennifer); Justin; Barry Nelson (SueAnn); her niece Rebecca; and great-nephews and great-nieces; and her beloved kitty Porkchop.

Cindi is preceded in death by her parents, sister Linda, her brother John, her sister Helen and her husband Mark.
