Cynthia Bierman

Des Moines - Cynthia May Bierman, 66, of Des Moines, Iowa, joined her sistren angels on March 17, 2020. Cynthia was born May 24, 1953 in Jefferson, Iowa to Lee and Gladys King of Churdan, Iowa. She loved the farm life, and was active in 4-H. She fondly remembered the frequent visits from numerous cousins, and a family trip to Alaska. Cynthia moved to Des Moines in 1971 to attend AIB, then began her 48-year career in insurance and investments, retiring just last week. In 1988, Cynthia married Calvin Bierman of Des Moines, and took the first of several trips to Walt Disney World. In later years, they traveled to Los Angeles, and discovered the joy of cruising to the Caribbean. Cynthia was an avid reader of romance novels and crime fiction. Cynthia enjoyed attending plays, and traveling to concerts across the Midwest. Cynthia also shared her love of Christmas, and would listen to holiday music all year long. Cynthia was preceded in death by her parents, Lee and Gladys King, and her brother Wayne. She is survived by her husband Calvin, her brother Gary of Urbandale, and her sister Darlene of Pharr, Texas. Contributions in lieu of flowers may be made to the Churdan United Methodist Church. Cynthia's infectious laugh, genuine concern for others, and loving spirit will be missed by many.

Dear Calvin,
I cannot express how deeply sadden Olivia and I were to hear the shocking news of Cynthia's passing.
Having known Cynthia for so many years, I can picture her smiling face ever time I stopped in the office. She was so thoughtful and genuine, in every way possible. She would pin up pictures of some of the office children and of her niece and nephew, at her desk, beaming with joy as she named each one.
Calvin, I pray for strength and peace to embrace you while you deal with this terrible loss. We are keeping you in our thoughts and prayers. A true angel has graced the gates of Heaven.

Calvin, although we do not know each other personally, Cynthia has shared with me parts of your lives together. She came to the office where I work. She spent time telling me about your travels, concerts you've attended, going to the state fair, and about how you met and your long relationship. She did have a wonderful sweet personality with a warm smile and infectious laughter. God bless you and help you find peace.

I always look forward to seeing Cynthia and Calvin stop by my Hyvee deli counter, every Monday night. They're my C&C Music Factory. They're the most adorable couple and genuinely nice people. Cynthia was so sweet and I loved to see how much Calvin loved and adored her. I will miss her deeply.

I am so sorry Calvin, Cynthia will be missed so much by our office and my family. She lit us up with her contagious laugh and wonderfully positive spirit. She loved talking about Disney World. She told me before our family vacation there to watch the nighttime parade where the floats released fog with fruity smells, it was my kids favorite. I picture her with a piece of paper 2 inches from her eyes trying to read something and laughing as I take credit for her bringing meat wrapped pickles. There wasn't a time she didn't make me smile and I will think of her often. May God bless you Calvin

I'm so glad that Cynthia was there for so many years to bring joy and happiness to Calvin. I'm so glad they got to go on so many adventures together as well as that adventure we call "life". She will always be with Calvin, even if she is no longer there in physical form. She was a best friend for a best friend.
