Cynthia Jane Johnson, 56, passed away Thursday, October 24, 2013, at her home in Nederland. She was born December 1, 1956, in Beaumont. She is survived by her mother, Margaret Wright of Woodville; sister, Carolyn Huerkamp of Beaumont; nephew, Christopher McCallon of Beaumont; beloved aunts, Thelma Holloway of Willis, and Jeannette McCreight of Saratoga; cousins whom she dearly cherished; and lifelong friend, Cindy Neill. She is preceded in death by her brother-in-law, Ted Huerkamp of New Orleans; and her father, Herman Johnson of Batson. Cindy graduated from French High School and Lamar University. She retired from Jefferson County where she served the people of this community for over twenty years. She is remembered by her many friends as having the biggest heart, always giving to others, always extending a helping hand to those she came in contact with. Our family has lost their cowgirl. She loved everything Texan from her boots and hats to Texas teacups. She was always collecting Texas memorabilia. She loved woodworking and painting and would have several art projects going at one time and was still working on them at the time of her death. She fought the good fight against the cancer that finally claimed her life. She had such grace through all of this, and as her family and friends filled her with encouragement she, herself, was a great source of strength to them. It is difficult to understand how we will go on in a world without her physically with us but we know that someday we will all be together again, and that she is safe and well in the arms of God. A gathering of Ms. Johnson's family and friends will be from 1:00 p.m. until 2:00 p.m., with a memorial service at 2:00 p.m., Sunday, October 27, 2013, at Broussard's, 505 12th Street, Nederland. Her committal will be held at Broussard's Crematorium. Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. Proverbs 3:5. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made in Cindy's honor to the Southeast Texas Food Bank, P.O. Box 21012, Beaumont, Texas 77720.
