Read more about the life story of Cindy and share your memory.
Cindy Sue Balay, 43, passed away on August 12, 2023, leaving behind a legacy of love and laughter. Born in Indianapolis, IN on September 24, 1979, she was the daughter of David and Diana (Balay) Gaines.
Cindy's life was a testament to the incredible impact one person can have on the lives of those around them. Her caring nature knew no bounds, and her dedication to her daughter and grandchildren was unwavering. Cindy's presence could light up any room; her infectious laughter and zest for life were simply contagious. She had a remarkable ability to turn even the ordinary moments into something extraordinary.
Cindy often lived by the mantra, "Only God can judge me," embodying her spirit of authenticity and fearlessness. She was a sister, daughter, aunt, mother, and friend who loved with all her heart. Her love knew no boundaries, and she embraced each role she played with an unbridled passion.
Survived by her beloved daughter, Halie (Avery James Sr) Balay, Cindy leaves behind a precious legacy through her grandchildren, Jazzlynn and Avery James Jr. Her parents, David and Diana Gaines, hold the memory of their daughter close to their hearts. Cindy's twin sister, Mindy Balay, shared an unbreakable bond that transcended words. Tonya (Andy) Hughes, Cindy's older sister, holds memories close to her heart, celebrating the moments they cherished together.
Her nieces and nephews, Jeremy Fullen, Jennifer Fullen, Billy Balay, Marie Balay, Desiree Balay, James Hanson, and Kalena Balay, carry forth the love and wisdom she imparted upon them. Baby Casey, a great-niece, held a special place in Cindy's heart. Her faithful companion, dog Nina, was by her side through thick and thin.
Cindy's journey on this Earth may have ended, but her spirit lives on in the lives she touched. Her memory will forever serve as a reminder to live with passion, authenticity, and a love that knows no bounds. As we bid her farewell, let us remember the joy she brought into our lives and the lessons she taught us about the true meaning of unconditional love.
In this time of grief and reflection, may we find comfort in knowing that Cindy's spirit now rests in eternal peace. As we carry her memory forward, may we honor her legacy by embracing life with the same fervor and devotion she showed us.
Rest in peace, dear Cindy, knowing that your love lives on in our hearts.
