Cindy Roy went home to be with her Lord and Savior Sunday November 26, 2023, after a self-less battle with ovarian cancer. She passed away at home under hospice care surrounded by love and comfort. Cindy came into life July 24, 1970, in Chillicothe, MO to parents Gary and Iona (Pete) White and joined sister Robin. She grew up on the farm in the Sampsel area attending school in Chillicothe.
Cindy enjoyed rural life as a child and teenager. Some of her fondest family memories growing up were cutting firewood on Sunday afternoons, going to her granny’s for lunch, mushroom hunting, deer hunting with her dad, and time spent at the county fair showing her market steers. She was active in 4-H, a varsity football cheerleader for four years and a homecoming queen candidate her senior year of high school. She attended college at Central Missouri State University in Warrensburg obtaining a Bachelor of Science in Marketing and Advertising. On August 3, 1991, Cindy was married to Scott Roy. They resided in Warrensburg for six months while Cindy completed college.
Upon graduation, they moved to Prescott, AZ, where Scott was residing and attending college. While in Arizona, Cindy worked for Strum Ruger, Prescott Livestock Auction and was a grocery manager for Albertson’s for 6 years. They had two daughters during that time, Breilly and Sadie, who were the sunshine of her life. In the spring of 1998, they returned home to Trenton so their daughters could grow up near family. From 1999 to 2019 Cindy was employed by Grand River Mutual as a customer service representative and then as the Marketing Representative. In the fall of 2019, she joined Farmers Bank of Northern, MO as their Marketing Director where she was employed until the spring of 2023 before she retired due to illness.
Cindy was a member of Wesley United Methodist church in Trenton. Her God-given ministry was quilting, baking, and decorating which she did for family, friends and often just to brighten someone’s day. Cindy’s life fully revolved around her family and friends. She was constantly engaged in her daughters’ lives, fully supporting them in all endeavors as unique individuals. She never missed any of their school or extracurricular activities. Cindy enjoyed being outdoors. Some of her favorite outdoor interests included canoeing, fishing, mushroom hunting for the “big one” with her friend Sarah, boating on the lake with the Dolan family, flower gardening, and walking with friends. Sunday afternoons were spent rooting on her Kansas City Chiefs with her family and the Dolans. One of her favorite family activities were the years spent while Breilly and Sadie were showing cattle. She enjoyed spending time at the barn washing and grooming the calves and helping break them to lead. She was an ever faithful “show mom” making sure lunch and snacks were packed, jeans were manure free, pulling a comb when needed to help get a calf show-ready, to helping calve on cold winter nights keeping warm towels ready for newborn calves and hot chocolate ready for frozen girls. Above all she cherished the relationship and fellowship with her “show family”.
Cindy is survived by her husband Scott of 32 years, daughter Breilly Roy of Fayette, MO, daughter Sadie Stimpson, son-in-law Ryan and granddaughter Hattie Sue of Farmersville, two daughtersof-the-heart Lauren and Morgan Dolan, MO, parents Gary and Pete White of Mooresville, MO, sister Robin Quinn and brother-in-law Raymond of Avalon, MO, mother-in-law Babe Roy of Spickard, numerous nieces and nephews, brother-in-laws, and sister-in-laws.
