Sadly, Cynthia Jeannette Baillie passed away Saturday morning on August 24, 2019. On this day, her son Nicholas Elvrum lost his beloved mother and her husband Donald Rae Baillie lost his treasured high school sweetheart. After the first kiss Cindy and Donald shared in 1976, they proclaimed that one day they would be married. Once separated and then found again, the two inseparable lovebirds joined hands to live out the promise made in San Bruno 35 years ago, and were finally married October 21, 2011.
Cindy was born on October 20, 1962 as the second child of Louise (Berg) and David Muth. She is survived by her cherished son Nicholas Elvrum and her two loving sisters, Theresa Lesavoy and Dianna Langer. Cindy received her Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from CSU, Sacramento and her Masters degree from Chapman University. With a huge heart, she devoted her career to shaping the lives of children through elementary school teaching, and was admired by many of her students.
Cindy dealt with the effects of type 1 diabetes mellitus from the age of 10. Life was not always fair to Cindy, but she was a survivor. Perhaps it was the struggles that Cindy endured which made her the passionate, honest, and fearless woman that she was. Remarkably, she overcame two life threatening automobile accidents and numerous other personal struggles. Yet, she was the most loving and devoted daughter, wife, sister, and aunt anyone could ask for. She is forever loved by every family member, unconditionally.
Cindy was impassioned with the thought of curing childhood diabetes. In lieu of flowers, kindly make any donations to the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation in her name.
