Cindy Carr passed away surrounded by those who loved her Monday, December 5, 2022, at Pear Valley Senior Living in Central Point, Oregon, after a long, 9-year battle with Alzheimer’s disease. Cindy was born Cynthia Diane Colville on February 23, 1950, to William A. (Bill) and Helen Colville in Spokane, Washington. She was raised in Reardan, Washington, with her brother, Chip, where she attended school and graduated high school in 1968. During her high school years, she was named Miss Reardan and Miss Lincoln County.
After high school, Cindy attended one year of college at Washington State University before marrying Gary Wegner (also from Reardan) in August of 1969. They lived in Spokane, Reardan, Olympia, and Centralia, Washington throughout their married years. They raised two daughters, Andrea and Kristin, during their school years, on their farm near Reardan, Washington, where they lived until they divorced in the mid-nineties.
Cindy was a busy Mom and farmwife, while also working as the bookkeeper at her family’s business, Colville’s Garage, in Reardan for many years. In 1994, Cindy moved to Spokane to pursue a degree in Accounting at Whitworth College. She proudly graduated summa cum laude in 1997. Later that year she moved to Medford, Oregon, where she worked first for Kosmatka Donnelly &amp; Co. LLP for a few years and then for the Grange Co-Op in the Accounting department at their headquarters, working up from Staff Accountant to Controller over the years. In 1998, Cindy was diagnosed with breast cancer. She fought hard through surgery and chemotherapy and was declared cancer-free two years later. In 2013, Cindy began experiencing worsening memory issues, which made it difficult to work, so she retired from her work at the Grange Co-Op. In 2014.At the age of 63, Cindy was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. Cindy lived at home until 2018 when she moved into residential memory care, first at Farmington Assisted Living and then at Pear Valley Senior Living, both in Medford, Oregon.

In Reardan, she was involved with Junior Miss Committee, Float Committee, Service League, and the RHS Business Department Advisory Committee. She judged several State of Washington Junior Miss Pageants. In Medford, Cindy was involved in Kindred Spirits and the Star Lite chapter of Soroptimists International. Cindy prioritized others over herself. She loved her family, especially her daughters and grandchildren. She loved watching her girls play sports and enjoyed watching her grandchildren dance, wrestle and race. Cindy is survived by her brother, William C. (Chip Colville), her daughters, Andrea (Edrel) Jaime of Medford, Oregon, and Kristin (Brent) Maxwell of Phoenix, Arizona, as well as her four grandchildren: Gabrielle and Delainey Maxwell and Enrique and Isabella Jaime.
