Cynthia Ann Collier

With a heart that overflowed with love, a spirit as vibrant as a summer’s day, and a faith as steadfast as a mountain, Cynthia Ann Collier, fondly known as Cindy Collier, completed her earthly journey on December 6, 2023. Born on July 27, 1944, in Dallas, Texas, Cynthia’s life was a tapestry woven with threads of compassion, creativity, love, and thoughtfulness. She was a beacon of hope and a testament to resilience. She was the epitome of grace and a testament to the power of faith in action.

Cynthia had a gift for making those around her feel cherished and valued, her love for her family was as immense as the Texas sky. In 1975, she married the love of her life, Charles Collier, and together, they built a family that was her pride and joy. She was a loving mother to Shelley (Gary) Riddlespurger, Michael Tipton, Pamela Neighbors, Charles (Kim) Collier, Lori (Alan) Greer, and Lynn (Glenn) Henderson. A doting grandmother, Cynthia delighted in her 13 grandchildren and 5 great-grandchildren, each one a precious jewel in her heart. Her parents, Millard and Lucille Bradley, welcomed her into heaven.

In her youth, Cynthia’s diligence and commitment led her to be hired by the F.B.I. straight out of high school, marking the beginning of a distinguished career in government service. Her love for her community and her faith led her to serve as a secretary at her beloved Freedom Fellowship, a role she cherished. Cynthia’s relationship with God was the cornerstone of her life. She was a guiding light, leading care group Bible studies, and volunteering at Freedom House. Her favorite verse, Proverbs 3:5-6, “Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight,” was a constant reminder of her unwavering faith.

Cynthia had an innate sense of creativity and a passion for quilting. Each stitch was an expression of her love and thoughtfulness. She was an avid reader, always eager to embark on a new literary adventure. Together with her husband Chuck, she enjoyed weekend trips, making memories that they treasured. Her love for The Gaithers was well-known, their concerts, a source of joy.

In the words of Cynthia’s loved ones, “She showed the joy of Jesus with everyone she met.” Her life was a testament to this truth. Her compassion, her thoughtfulness, and her love have left an indelible mark on the hearts of those who had the privilege of knowing her.
