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.

I loved her, so much fun, so elegant. The last time I saw her she was barefoot putting gas into Alice's Rolls Royce. Rest in peace, my smart friend.

So so sorry to hear of Cindy's passing. Cindy and I were close friends for a few years back in the 70s (I think). She was such a joy and inspiration to me, my family and friends up here in Massachusetts. Lost touch some time ago. I hope her last years were joyful and peaceful. Condolences to her family and friends. May sweet memories somehow ease the pain. Deepest sympathy. A fan and friend. Joey D'Angelo

Every few years I did my search with no results and then this. Too painful. Too young, too soon.

Saddened and shocked at Cindy's passing. I met her in our senior year at Immaculata, we became good friends and hung around a lot, she introduced me to my first serious boyfriend and we would double date, along with clothes shopping, and sometimes just go for joy rides. She would always unload her heart to me regarding her boyfriends, especially Peter Primm, I can't recall the name of the band he was in, I think it was the Lourdes? I remember her favorite song was the Turtles "So happy together". We lost touch after awhile, I would see her here and there shopping or at a concert. Over the years I would contact the old boyfriend to find out news about her. This past summer I felt an urgency to find her, I finally found her address and had intended to write her in hopes of reconnecting, but too late as she is gone. She was a beautiful soul inside and out, the world will seem a little emptier with her passing. My condolences to the Lang family. Cindy you were meant to shine and shine you did!

Cindy and I were friends during our teen years. We always had so much fun shopping, going to dances, The Lourds, etc. Cindy had the best sense of style - more than anyone else I have ever known. She loved wearing hats. She has a beautiful soul. I tried to locate her many times but without success and am shocked to see she has passed. My condolences to her family and other friends. Be free and at peace, Cindy, my friend!

RIP dear sister. From Huntington to Butternut so many tales to tell. You once told me "Born to be Wild" was your favorite song and you lived up to that in the best way. Your kindness and assistance with Mom and Dad in their later years like yourself, will not be forgotten.I'll think of you often especially on the shores of Lake Huron that you enjoyed so much! Godspeed.

I was so sorry to hear of Cindy's passing. While growing up I always thought she was so pretty. When I was around 9 years old she diyed my hair very blonde, I thought it was so cool especially since she was the one who dyed it! At my wedding reception she was talking to Vince and I, she was so funny and if you knew her you can imagine what she said! Although I haven't seen her in many years, through Mimi I have been able to keep up with her. So sad to see her go. See you on the other side cuz!

I met Cindy way back in the Alice Cooper days. My brother was in the band, so I was the crummy little sister. We saw each other many times and she was great. Always remembered me and talked to me. Wish we could have kept in touch. Condolences to her friends and family.
