Cindy Gifford (Walker) passed away at noon on September 17, 2017. In 1982 a serious car accident left Cindy paralyzed from the waist down. Her joyful spirit kept Cindy and her close-knit family going strong for many years. In 1996 Cindy had to have both of her legs amputated. Her sister Deby ('69) said that "Cindy got along great for years". Unfortunately In 2017, Cindy thought she had the flu but would learn her illness was sepsis. Sadly, Cindy subsequently succumbed to her illness on September 17. The world was a happier place with our playful friend Cindy in it. She was a fun member of our group of girls who grew up together in College Hill. Cindy's son, Sean Walker chose not to submit an obituary. Ergo, those of us who enjoyed Cindy's friendship are encouraged to share memories here. Among my favorites are early morning breakfasts at Frisch's and parties at the Gifford's. Rest in Peace, Cindy.
