Cynthia J. Simpson 06/28/1959~04/10/2011 After a seventeen year battle with breast cancer, Cynthia Jane Simpson died April 10, 2011 in her home in Farmington, UT surrounded by her family. She is survived by her husband, Floyd James Simpson and her children: Joshua Curtis and Tori Emily Simpson, Sierra and Roy Charles Shuldberg, Arielle Simpson and Benjamin Keith Simpson. She is also survived by her parents, Roland E. and Margaret Curtis and two sisters, Anne Curtis and Virginia Curtis. Cindy was born in the pink military hospital in Honolulu, Hawaii on June 28, 1959. Dancing was one of the great loves of her life. She was a member of the Rick's College Ballroom and Folkdance teams and later danced on the Brigham Young University International Folkdance team. After graduating from BYU with her Bachelor's degree, she moved to Ogden, Utah and became a student director of the Ogden LDS Institute Folkdancers. It was in this group that she met and married her favorite dance partner, Floyd. Cindy always had a contagious love for life and service. She loved spending time with youth, in particular young women. Her husband cannot recall a year during their marriage that she missed going to Girl's Camp with the young women of the LDS church. Her love for youth extended to Davis High School Marching Band where she was a devoted "Band Mom" for four years, which included a weekly "Bread Day". All who met her felt of her love and passion for life. There was never a time when Cindy was not smiling. One of her greatest accomplishments in life was her ability to make anyone smile, no matter the circumstance, and never missing the opportunity to do so. "When you get the choice to sit it out or dance, I hope you dance." Lee Ann Womack I Hope You Dance Funeral services will be held Friday, April 15, 2011 at 11:00 a.m. at the Farmington North Stake Center, 729 West Shepard Lane, Farmington, Utah.

Our hearts goes out to the Simpson Family. I remember Cindy teaching the Youth of our stake. How to dance and it was to the Lee Ann Womack song, Dance. I still remember her and husband Floyd dancing. That the I way I will remember her smiling and dancing.

Cindy - She Who Loves Life
She sees the world
With a whimsical eye
As she dances, twirls and sings
At the top of her lungs.
Her hair blows wild in the breeze
As she walks barefoot in the sand.
She basks in the sunshine
And twinkles with delight
Under the stars.
And someday her spirit
Will simply fade away
From pure joy!!
That is my friend Cindy,
Whom I love and will miss.

Floyd & Family: 

Lisa & I would like to convey our deepest sympathies and extend condolences to you over the loss of your wife, mother and our very dear and special friend. As you recall, from the moment you two joined our dance group, we formed a special bond. In fact, it was at our very 1st dance rehearsal together that I nicknamed your wife "Smiley" and from that day forward addressed and referred to her as such. We will be eternally grateful for the friendship we have had with you and Cindy. Some of our fondest memories have been shared with you. Whether we were biking along the Danube, eating Chinese food in Beijing, dancing in Krems Austria or sleeping in a bomb shelter in Switzerland, we shall forever treasure those special times together. 

Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Also, please accept our apologies for not being able to attend the funeral as we were in California that week. 

Love always

After 17 years of fighting this awful, awful disease, it is your time to rest in peace. Those survivors who are left behind will continue your fight. Something more needs to be done. Rest in Peace and know that a stranger is praying for you.
