Cynthia "Cyndie" Lee (Vogus) LaPrad of Georgetown, DE., died unexpectedly on March 27th in Siloam Springs, AR. She was the eldest child of William Dexter Vogus and Ardelia Aaronette Vogus (nee Benson) in Mahnomen, MN., on February 13th, 1947.
Cyndie spent her first few years living in Minnesota before moving to California with her family, where she grew up. She was a 1965 graduate of Port Hueneme High School, CA. Cyndie joined the Air Force working as a Top Secret Decrypter during the Vietnam War and served for a few years before getting married and starting a family. In 1970, Cyndie relocated with her family to Seaford, DE., where she raised her two daughters, Susan and Leigh. Cyndie was a longtime resident of Seaford and a member of Christ Lutheran Church. Cyndie spent many years in the banking industry and was very prominent in the local art community. She moved to Ocean Pines, MD., in 2003, living there for several years before moving to Georgetown, DE with her husband Larry Crabill in July 2013. Together they spent several winters in Arizona.
Cyndie was a very vivacious, witty, spunky, and creative woman. She was always full of life and passionate about the things she loved. She was an avid traveler, an incredible artist and a creative jewelry designer. Never letting the setbacks of life keep her down, she was always ready to take on the world and explore. She was always eager to share her many stories and hilarious experiences with her friends and family. Cyndie lit up any room she walked into, her spirit and outgoing personality were impossible to ignore. She used her many talents to better her community as she became older including teaching art lessons at the Indian River Senior Center. She was an incredible mother, sister, wife and grandmother, adored and cherished for being the funniest member in the family. She always knew how to put a smile on anyone's face and was the rock in her family through tough times. Her infectious laugh and zest for life will be greatly missed.
