Obituary for Cynthia "Cyndi" Anne Riegel

With profound sadness, Cynthia “Cyndi” Anne Riegel passed away on May 26, 2019 in Chambersburg, Pennsylvania. She was a sweet soul who was kind, caring, and loving. Cyndi was a very adventurous woman, leaving home at the age of 19 to drive across the US and take up residency in California where she earned her Bachelor’s degree at California State University, Long Beach, then accomplished her Master’s degree in Special Education from San Diego State University. Cyndi worked at San Diego Gas & Electric to pay for her education while going to school. She last taught at Dana Point, H.S. in Orange County, California, where the mainstreamed students adored her. Cyndi was an avid reader and animal lover who enjoyed volunteering at animal shelters. Most of all, Cyndi had an affectionate laugh and loved being with family and friends.
We have fond memories of time spent with her at the family beach house on the Chesapeake Bay, our aunt & uncle’s house on the Potomac River in Piney Point, MD, and summer beach trips to Nags Head, NC.
Cyndi was 51 years old, and is survived by her mother Joyce M. Riegel, of Chambersburg, PA, her brother, David W. Riegel and Brooke Huff Riegel, of Baltimore, MD, her sister, Kimberly Riegel Johnson and her husband, Jeff, of Mont Vernon, NH, four nieces and nephews; Emma Riegel, Cameron Riegel, Jacqueline Foster, Ryan Foster, her Aunt Barbara and Uncle George Brstilo of Piney Point, MD and several aunts, uncles and cousins.

Most of all Cyndi loved her family, always keeping up with her nieces and nephews. She will be dearly missed and forever in our hearts.

Cyndi was preceded in death earlier this year by her Father, Robert B. Riegel.

A service will be held at the Thomas L. Geisel Funeral Home, 333 Falling Spring Rd, Chambersburg, PA on June 8, 2019 at 11:00 am.

In Cyndi’s memory, a “Tiny Library” will be built (location to be announced). Donations to the Special Olympics, the Cumberland Valley Animal Shelter,, or the Franklin Learning Center are welcome.

I grew up in the same neighborhood as the Riegel family and although Cyndi was younger she is still a part of my childhood memories. We often played in the Riegel’s backyard in the playhouse and in the pool. Cyndi always had a big smile and a great laugh. I will keep the entire family in my prayers...I’m so sorry for your loss. I will hold my childhood memories of Cyndi in my heart.

Cyndi lived right next door to me in Lanham, MD. My best friend Kim was her older sister so I was at the Riegel's house all the time! People often thought Cyndi was my younger sister because we both had a big head of dark hair and a big smile. Cyndi had a great smile! And when she smiled those beautiful eyes just lit up! I'll miss you.

One summer, my brother Ryan and I were lucky enough to spend a week or so with Aunt Cyndi at the beach. It was a blast hanging out with her — she was so kind, cool and funny. Her warm demeanor and love for all will be dearly missed.
