Cindy Padjen

Cindy passed peacefully at home surrounded by her family and lots of love. She fought a near two year battle against cancer with grace, beauty and dignity. Her unbelievably positive attitude inspired everyone around her and she was our HERO.

She leaves her husband and best friend of 39 years, Tom, daughters, Nina (Colin), twins Mila (John) and Heidi (Dan) and her cherished grandkids, John, Rocky, Hunter and Naomi. Mom loved and adored them deeply and they will miss their Nannie forever.

Cin touched many lives as a proud, lifelong resident of Lake Cowichan, with her parents Ted and Ethel, big sis Gerrie (Doug), brothers Steven (Tracey), Mark (Gail) and family’s. As well as brother-in-law Rocky and sister-in-law Kathy and family of Australia. A close knit family if there ever was one. There is now a huge hole that will never be filled.

A special thank you to Dr. Ismail and Dr. Masuda for their unbelievable care of Cindy, and a huge thanks to EVERYONE for all the love and support shown to Cin and to us in this terrible time.

A celebration of Cindy’s life will be held at the Lake Cowichan Community Hall, Saturday, July 23 at 1:00pm. The family would appreciate donations be made in Cindys name to the Cowichan District Hospital Foundation.
