Cindy Vega, 59, of Poplar Bluff, passed away on Wednesday, September 12, 2018 at her residence.
She was born on July 22, 1959 to Jettie (Sauls) Voisine in St. Louis, MO. She graduated from Twin Rivers High School in 1977. On September 26, 1986 she married Francisco Vega, Sr. in Las Vegas, NV. He preceded her in death on April 19, 2015.
She was a breast cancer survivor and many other health challenges and struggles.
Cindy loved her husband, children, and grandchildren unconditionally. She was a strong woman who fought for the things she loved and was passionate about. Her door was always open to cook for anyone that needed a meal and enjoyed preparing food and cooking for family gatherings. Cindy liked Bingo, the color purple, and most importantly words can not describe how much she loved Prince.
Ancient lovers believed a kiss would literally unite their souls, because the spirit was said to be carried in one’s breath. This was never more evident than when Cindy first met and kissed Francisco as a bet after a Michael Jackson concert because he looked like Prince.
