Cynthia Marie Lang
Cynthia Marie Lang passed away on January 3, 2017.
Cindy was born in Detroit, Michigan on November 8, 1949.
She graduated from Immaculata High School in 1967 and went on to study at The Detroit School of the Arts. Her early life was filled with art, rock and roll, and travel. Cindy's college apartment in downtown Detroit was the meeting place for the emerging Detroit art rock scene in the early 70's. It was at a party there that she met her then boyfriend, Alice Cooper. They moved to a farmhouse outside of Pontiac which was the site of many legendary parties and impromptu performances.
When they moved to New York City, Cindy held court at Max's Kansas City with folks such as Andy Warhol, Johnny Rotten and Groucho Marx. She worked as a model and was one of three original "Charlie's Girls" for Revlon's Charlie perfume. From New York she moved to Beverly Hills, California and became involved in the LA movie industry.
She traveled extensively in these years, spending time in Hawaii, New Zealand, Brazil, Paris and Berlin. Cindy returned to Michigan 20 years ago, choosing to step out of the fast lane. She settled in Port Huron where her late parents, James M. and Virginia Lang, resided. In Port Huron she enjoyed the companionship of her parents, friends, her beloved dog "Doc" and the lovely beaches of Lake Huron.
Cindy was an astute and witty observer of modern pop culture. She was always at the forefront of the lastest music, fashion, movies, and tv shows. She loved to read—a perfect day was sitting on the beach with a tall glass of ice tea and a good mystery.
Cindy is survived by her siblings, James Lang, Janice (Rod) Coffey, Tim (Cindy) Lang, Patty (Jad) Fair, Mike (Diane) Lang, her friend and cousin, Mimi Robinson-Johnson and a number of beautiful nieces and nephews.
There will be a private memorial.
