Cynthia Lea Matthews

October 14, 1960 — June 15, 2019

Cynthia Lea Matthews, WILLOW PARK – Cindy Matthews, beloved wife, and mother went home to her Lord and Savior after a 12-year battle with cancer on Saturday, 15 June 2019, at the age of 58. Cindy passed peacefully in her home in Willow Park with her husband of 29 years Don Matthews, and daughters Taylor Matthews, and Emily Wright (Jordan). Cindy is survived by her mother Alice Bush, sister Janet O’Neal (Randy), and brother Rodney Bush (Kim). Cindy was born on 14 October 1960 in Pauls Valley, Oklahoma and was a resident of Parker County, Texas for over 25 years.
They say love does not show up at your front door…for Cindy it showed up at her sister Janet’s front door during Thanksgiving 1989 thanks to her brother Rodney who introduced Don to Cindy. Cindy transferred from the Smith Barney Tulsa Oklahoma office to the Dallas, Texas office in 1990 which led to Don and Cindy’s wedding on 20 October 1990. After the birth of their youngest daughter, Emily, in December 1992, Cindy resigned to raise Taylor and Emily full time until they were nearly graduated from Aledo High School.
In August 2006, Cindy started working at Covenant Group / Sagora as a project manager and designer for both new and renovated senior care facilities. Cindy leveraged her previous experience from building homes with her husband Don to cultivate her love for interior design. She had an eye for creating beautiful spaces and making people feel at home in all of her projects. In Cindy’s thirteen-year career, she completed projects throughout Texas, Oklahoma, Alabama, Florida, and California.
Cindy was loved for her clever sense of humor and quick wit. Her laugh was infectious and playful banter was commonplace. Cindy greeted all with warmth and kindness. Her heart sought to help those in need. She often gave her time and money to those less fortunate, expecting nothing in return. Cindy was also a gracious and doting mother. The matriarch of a loving, tightly knit family. Her devotion fostered a family full of love and nurtured the spirits of her daughters up until her passing. One of her favorite quotes was from Cinderella, “Have courage and be kind.” Both things she displayed in her battles against cancer.
