Cynthia May (Perry) Henderson, age 57, of Vanderbilt, Michigan, passed away on September 24, 2022.
She was born on February 8, 1965, to Lonnie and Dorothy (Parkin) Perry.
She married her husband John P. Henderson on August 7, 1992, and they spent 30 loving years together.
Cyndi loved her family more than anything else. She took pride in being the rock and support system to many people whom she loved as her own. She often would take in neighborhood kids and was a mother figure to many of them.
She loved to be out enjoying nature; whether that be fishing or pointing and telling Johnny what to do in the garden. Cyndi and Johnny also loved to travel with their dogs in the family’s camper.
Cynthia was a recipient of an organ transplant, and in return, her final wish was to donate her organs and help continue organ transplantation education, which she was able to do through Gift of Life.
Cyndi is survived by her husband, Johnny; children, Philip and Raina; father, Lonnie (Star); siblings, Lonnie and Stella (Mike); nieces and nephews, Stephanie, Jake, and Andy; and many great nieces and nephews whom she loved dearly.
She was preceded in death by her mother, Dorothy.
A memorial service will be held on October 2, 2022, at 2:30 p.m. with visitation beginning at 1:00 p.m. at the Corwith Township Hall in Vanderbilt. The family would like to invite guests to stay following the service for a luncheon and time of remembrance and celebration of Cyndi’s beautiful life.

You were my step mom and I loved you even if we were not close
I have great memories of cousin Cyndi. I always admired how she dared to give Grandma Parkin a hard time – and she got away with it! I remember her blasting John Cougar Mellencamp on her giant yellow boombox, and her hearty laugh. She was a fun person. When I was young, she said, “WHAT! You don’t like potato salad? You don’t know what you’re missing, kid.” and then she took a gigantic bite. I’m sorry you are gone, wonderful cousin. Love to your family.
Cyndi was a beautiful soul ,SHE HELPED GUIDE MY GRANDDAUGHTER when her father passed.John ,Phil and Raina ,God had a job only Cyndi could do,she will live on thru all of your memories
I have so many great memories of Cyndi from when the lived in Burton on Brady and then moving to Byron best friends back then. River swimming to getting chased by roosters She even had a pet racoon that was mean as hell but she still loved it.
Rest peacefully my friend until we meet again.
Cyndi was so much fun to be with in High School. She knew how to have fun. Her smile makes me smile every time I think of it, her laugh warmed my soul. She knew how to keep things real and in perspective. She gives new meaning to “The good die young.”
My thoughts and prayers go out to the many that have been touched by her.
“God himself will be with them. And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes
and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore.
The former things have passed away.”:(Revelation 21:3,4)
