Cindi Griffith


1953 - 2015 Obituary Condolences
May 2, 1953 - June 15, 2015 Cindi passed away late in the evening on June 15 with a group of family and friends at her hospital bedside. She had suffered from a variety of ailments, and she is now resting in peace. Cindi was born in Toledo, Ohio; her family moved to South Pasadena in the winter of 1961. She attended Holy Family School for 3 ½ years until her family moved to San Gabriel. She graduated from Saints Felicitas and Perpetua School in 1967 and then from Alverno High School in 1971. She attended Whittier College for two years. She began working at various retail stores in Pasadena for several years. She switched her career path to office management and administration for several prominent CPA firms in Pasadena and South Pasadena. She was engaged in the CPA profession for over fifteen years. When she began having serious health issues about eighteen years ago, her career changed again to include a customer service position with the Clary Corp. in Monrovia. Cindi married Steve Garcia in 1976, and they had one child, Rich Garcia. Until her health began to fail her, Cindi was one to enjoy life and to be engaged with Rich through his academic years in the Arcadia Unified School District. She was involved with the music department in those years as a volunteer in organizing and executing various fundraising and performance events. She took great pride in these efforts. Cindi's family wants to extend a special thanks to her niece Tammy Teran for her persistent and dedicated efforts over the past seven and a half months, as Cindi struggled through her various illnesses and infirmities. Cindi was predeceased by her dad Terry Griffith (1988). She is survived by her mother Pat (Griffith) Benson and her stepfather Bob; her son Rich and his wife Carlota; her former husband Steve Garcia; her brother Mark and his wife Delia; her brother Pete and his two children Shelley and Dean and his wife Kaytee and their twin sons Dylan and Logan. Services are scheduled for July 18; details of this will follow in this section soon. Cindi suffered greatly in the latter part of her life, and she was courageous in her battle. She is now removed from this and is at peace. We will remember her smile and laughter¿with a smile and a laugh in her honor! May God bless her memory.
