Cynthia Ann Shaner

September 11, 1963 — May 5, 2024


Cynthia Ann Shaner born September 11, 1963 passed away peacefully at her home in Cincinnati, Ohio on May 5, 2024. Cindy was preceded in death by her Father, Larry Shaner; Mother, Edith Virginia “Ginny” Shaner; Step-Mother, Sharon Shaner; Brother, Barry Shaner and Niece, Diana Shaner Hayslett. Cindy is survived by her sister Brenda Shaner (Connie) Cincinnati, Ohio; Sister in Law Nennia Seagraves (Curt) of Vandalia, Ohio; Step-Brother Doug Manson (Barb) of Centerville, Ohio; Step-Sister Trisha Williams (Don) from Gainsville, Georgia; two nephews Jason Shaner of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina; Nick Shaner of La Grande, Oregon; two great nephews Levi Hayslett and Logan Hayslett of Vandalia, Ohio; Uncle Ron and Aunt Wanda Harshman from Dayton, Ohio; and a host of cousins and friends. And her precious dog, Bubby-Licious, who must be an Angel, because he has lived way beyond his life expectancy.

Cindy’s Christian faith was strong. She could quote many bible verses. Her favorite two were John 3:16 For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life and Philippians 4:13, I can do all things through Christ who strengthened me.

Cindy was a graduate of Northview School in Dayton, Ohio in 1986. She attended workshop at Jergen’s until 2005 when she retired and moved to Cincinnati, Ohio. While in Cincinnati she enjoyed hanging out with her friends at Sunny Spot and Flight day programs.

In Cincinnati, thanks to Brenda Cameron, Hamilton County DDS and Extended Arms, LLC Cindy and Bubby lived in her own apartment which she decorated with the brightest of colors and often said how proud she was of herself.

Cindy was blessed with caregivers who became family: Alison, Lana, Tavi, Eloise and Tish who provided exceptional care. These compassionate, strong women came in the middle of the night and stayed with Cindy, holding her through her final moments. They will always be family.

Until her bones became so brittle that she could no longer walk Cindy enjoyed traveling, visiting and spending holidays with the Baker’s (Connie’s family) in Kentucky, going out to eat, shopping, joking around and singing. During the last two years, while Cindy was bedbound, she enjoyed receiving mail, gifts, cards, and banter from her three special friends from Kentucky Alichia, Kellie and Lisa. Her brittle bones did not deter her from shopping as she became skilled on Amazon. Cindy’s favorite things were Bubby Licious, McDonald sweet tea, singing and money. She literally always had cash and a credit card in hand even until her final moments.

It is no exaggeration that everyone who met Cindy, loved Cindy. She had the purest of hearts and faith. She made all of us wiser and kinder by knowing her.

Her Sister, Brenda believes that while we might not have been able to see the wings on Cindy’s back she was truly an angel walking among us.
