Cindy Lou Crockford (nee Thompson) 66 of Fulton passed away peacefully at Crouse Hospital in Syracuse on Monday, February 21, 2022, after a nearly nine year battle with ovarian cancer. Cindy was born in Fulton on May 24, 1955, to Howard W. Thompson and Ruth M. (Lange) Thompson, and was raised in Granby and Ira.
She was a 1973 graduate of Cato Meridian High School and graduated from Auburn Community College in 1975. Upon graduation she worked at Brunner the Printer in Auburn as a typesetter. After being a homemaker and stay at home mom for several years she returned to work at The Valley News as an ad typesetter and production coordinator. She also served as a clerk to the town supervisor for the Town of Granby.
Cindy was a member of the Bowen’s Corners United Methodist Church where she served as treasurer and was the long-time editor of the church’s newsletter. Cindy enjoyed making crafts especially needlepoint and going to garage and book sales, but her biggest joy was being a wife, mother and grandmother often hosting weeklong “camps” for her grandsons.
Besides her parents, Cindy was predeceased by her brothers Gerald (2008) and Howard (2015). Surviving is her husband of 45 years David; son Daniel (Amy) Crockford of Lockport; grandchildren, Dylan and Noah Crockford; brother, John (Kelly) Thompson of Buffalo; sisters, Mary Ann (Darren Terpening) VanLare of Hannibal, Ruth (Ed) McCarthy of Fulton, Helen Fisher of Syracuse, Betty (Nelson) Parsons of Hannibal and Beverly (David) Hoyt of Austell, Georgia; sisters-in-law, Kathy Thompson of Phoenix and Brenda Thompson of Cato; as well as many nieces and nephews.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Bowens Corners United Methodist Church 758 State Route 176, Fulton, New York 13069.
