Cindy Munger Hooper

(Aug. 27, 1946 - Feb. 22, 2021)


Cindy passed away at Spirit Mountain Hospice after a courageous battle with cancer. She was born in Seattle, Washington, and spent her younger years in Edmonds, Washington. At the age of 10, the family moved to Yuma, Arizona. 

Cindy went through grad school, high school, and then graduated from Arizona Western College. 

She and Tom met on a geology field trip to the Grand Canyon. They fell in love, married and spent the next 53 years happily married. They have one son David (Gale) and one granddaughter Kasey (Joe) Burns. She has one sister, Barbara (Jim) Meeks, and two brothers Fred (Judy) Munger and Jack (Mary) Munger. She has 14 nieces and nephews. 

During their life together they moved more times than they can remember. At each new home, Cindy got the family settled in and David in school. Then she found all the interesting things to see and do. She loved to sew, do counted cross-stich and read. She always had a craft project going and the home was always decorated for every holiday. 

Cindy was always up for long rides and enjoyed the history and the natural beauty that always surrounded the places they lived. 

They chose Powell as the place to retire because of its close proximity to Yellowstone Park and the Bighorn Mountains. Cindy loved all-day rides to both places to enjoy nature and watching for animals, her favorite being moose and having picnics. She will be missed but we know that she will always be with us. 

No services are planned at this time.
