NEW IPSWICH - Cynthia (Cindy) Lussier went to be with Jesus on Tuesday, July 15, 2014 after a courageous battle with cancer, staying at Massachusetts General Hospital's ICU long enough for family to say good-bye. She was strong, generous and compassionate, but feisty and funny. Cindy was born in Peterborough to the late Robert Stacy and the late Vera Pera. She grew up in New Ipswich and graduated from Mascenic High School. Cindy lived a vibrant life, never afraid to speak her mind. Her bright gardens, soft knitted sweaters, fresh mown grass, open Bible and buttery cookies all told a piece of her story. She loved Thanksgiving, long walks, and cheesy reality shows. Cindy worked tirelessly all week and could only be found inside on rainy weekends. She took immense pride in her two sons, Ricky and Brandon. She also loved participating in PTA, owning and operating The Fireworks Store, and serving the town as Town Clerk and Tax Collector. After her children, Cindy's greatest accomplishment was becoming a paramedic. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to her second home - the Souhegan Valley Ambulance Service (P.O. Box 95, New Ipswich, NH 03071). Cindy is also survived by her two brothers, Matt and Mike, sister Wendy, and numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins. A celebration of life will be held at the New Ipswich Town Field on Saturday, July 26, 2014 at 1 p.m. to honor Cindy's integrity, initiative, and accomplishments. Her husband of 31 years, Rick Lussier, invites all who loved her to celebrate in casual attire. No formal funeral or calling hours will be observed - Cindy would have wanted more sparkles. In life, Cindy preferred to be known as The Princess. Now in death, she has entered the Throne Room of the One True King.
