Cindy M. Scherer, 45

Cindy Marie Scherer, age 45, of Delano, passed away Thursday, March 10, 2016, at her home, with her family by her side, after a courageous battle with cancer.

She was born Aug. 3, 1970, in Robbinsdale, to Fred and Mary (Schmit) Goenner.

Cindy had a contagious smile; she was a loving wife, mother, daughter, sister and friend. She enjoyed spending time in the garden, and would make an entire room laugh with her story telling.

But, the most important thing to her was all three of her boys; Ben, her loving husband; and her two children, Wally and Clete. She took such pride in loving all three of them.

Cindy is survived by her husband, Ben; sons Wally and Clete; parents Fred and Mary Goenner; siblings Diane (Craig) Forsman, Lois (Tom) Mason, Marlene (Brian) Scott, and Sara (Matt) Curlee; in-laws Dan and Barb Scherer (Jaunich), Melissa Hokanson, Michelle Scherer (David Winecoff), and Patrick Scherer; as well as many other family members.

A memorial service took place Tuesday, March 15 at 11 a.m. at Woodridge Church in Long Lake. There was a gathering of family and friends from 9 to 11 a.m. at the church, prior to the services.

Arrangements were with the Iten Funeral Home in Delano.
