Cindy Yandell

September 13, 1956 — October 26, 2019

Cindy Molz Yandell was born in Barber County, Kansas on September 13, 1956 to Jim and Beverly Moore Molz.  She passed away on October 26, 2019 in Kauai, Hawaii at the age of 63.  Cindy graduated from South Barber High School in 1974.  She enrolled at East Central University in Ada, Oklahoma graduating with a degree in accounting, later obtaining her CPA from the state of Texas. Cindy was a loving mother to three boys Joel (Ty), Matt, and Tim. Cindy married David Yandell on October 19, 1996 at the Ft. Worth United Methodist Church in Ft. Worth, Texas. They spent their time enjoying their grandchildren, Asher, Wyatt, Charlotte, Jack, and Ryan. She skied, hiked, loved, played, and spent every moment she could with them. Cindy was the glue to our family. She was fierce loving, she always wanted everyone to be together, and always felt that making memories together was the most important thing.  She took her family on countless trips and adventures, cementing those memories in all of our minds forever.  Cindy’s relationship with God was close and personal these last years.  She took great pride in being a member of the White Chapel United Methodist Church, participating in their bible studies and the Refugee Initiative Program they supported.

Those who have preceded Cindy in death are her parents, Jim and Beverly Molz.

Those left to cherish her memory are her husband, Dave Yandell; her three children, Joel (Ty) Naegele and his wife, Haley, Matthew Naegele and his wife, Brooke, Timothy Naegele and his companion, Kayce Phy; her grandchildren, Asher Naegele, Wyatt Naegele, Charlotte Naegele, Jack Naegele, and Ryan Naegele; her siblings, Judy Courson and her husband, Dean, Ronald Molz and his wife, Kristi, Russell Molz and his wife, Carol; two aunts, numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends. She was everything to everyone who knew her. We are better for having even a moment with her and will miss her every day of our lives.

We give forth the following prayer in her name:  “We seem to give them back to you, O God, Who gave them to us.  You did not lose them in giving, so we do not lose them in their return.  For life is eternal and love is immortal, and death is only a horizon, and a horizon is nothing but the limit of our sight.  Lift us up, O Strong Son of God, that we may see further; cleanse our eyes that we may see more clearly; draw us closer to Yourself that we may know ourselves to be nearer to our loved ones who are with You.  And as you have prepared a place for them, prepare, as well, a place for us, that where you are we may be also and forever more.  Amen.

We hope you can help us lift up her legacy and honor her charismatic spirit.
