Cynthia Carol Brucker
Cynthia Carol Brucker, loving wife, mother and grandmother, passed away on Wednesday June 10, 2020 in Goodyear, Arizona at the age of 69.
Cynthia was born on September 7, 1950 to Perry and Bernice Brown in Inglewood, California. She was the youngest daughter of five sisters.
She is survived by her husband Joseph Brucker, daughters Kimberly May and Laurie May, and her five grandchildren, Breanna DeGeorge, Madison Sagastume, Dustin DeGeorge, Jaden Sagastume and Hailey DeGeorge. She leaves behind her beloved dogs, Duke, Cupcake, Gizmo and Tinkerbell.
Cindy, or also knows as “Cinky” grew up in Orange County California with her parents and four older sisters. They were known as the “Five beautiful Brown girls” for each sister was blessed with beauty. Cindy was born with one blue and partially brown eye. This aspect of her was very unique and beautiful. Cindy loved animals, her first pet was a goose that followed her everywhere. Even until recently she was online actively looking to help out any dog that needed adoption. She sometimes joked that she liked animals more then humans at times. Cindy had lived in four states during her lifetime. Her favorite place she lived was her parents birthplace in Arkansas. She loved the years her and her husband, Joe, had shared on their 15 acres of beautiful land. She loved watching Joe mow the grass on his tractor on the weekends and going four wheeling, canoeing down the buffalo river or fishing in their boat, and ending the day sitting on their back porch enjoying the views and birds together. Joe and Cindy had fun dancing and singing together to the Beach Boys. Cindy was so excited and proud to go back to college in her 50’s and finally finish all the credits she needed to earn her Bachelors in Science for Human Resources. During Joe and Cindy’s marriage they became grandparents together to five grandchildren. It became more important for them to live closer to them, so they packed up and headed to Goodyear Arizona in 2011. Cindy was a loving grandmother to her five amazing grandkids. She would watch them after school and help them with their homework and she prided herself in them as they meant so much to her. As a mother, she was always someone we could easily talk to and ask for advice without ever feeling judged. She saved every card and sentiment that was ever given to her and she was a lover of life. She was strong, witty and smart and her laugh is something we are all going to miss.
