**Cynthia Kaye Eamer: A Life Celebrated with Love and Laughter**

Cynthia Kaye Eamer, known affectionately as Cindy, passed away surrounded by her family's love on June 27, 2024. She was 65. Born on November 25, 1958, Cindy grew up in the close-knit communities of Webster City and Altoona, where she developed a lifelong passion for the natural world.

Cindy's professional journey spanned roles that reflected her meticulous attention to detail and her creative flair. She spent a significant part of her career as a dental technician, later finding joy at JAS Concrete before her retirement. Beyond her professional life, Cindy was a dedicated caretaker of her acreage, a sanctuary for horses and a donkey, embodying her deep connection to all living things.

An avid lover of the outdoors, Cindy found solace and joy in camping and horseback riding, especially her treks to Eminence, Missouri. Her spirit shone brightest during her annual "camping trips with the girls," a beloved ritual that mixed laughter, reminiscing, and crafting.
Cindy's artistic talents were diverse, spanning woodworking, ceramics, painting, and was most enthralled with photography. Each creation showcased her dedication and artistic vision. But her roles as a devoted mother and beloved Grammie brought her the most joy. Cindy transformed her home into a playground of wonder for her grandchildren, complete with backyard campouts, sleepovers filled with candy, and late-night frog-catching adventures.

Cindy leaves behind a loving family: her father, Lloyd Hennigar; daughters, Angela Little (Eric), Sara Todd; grandchildren, Koby, Addison, Cameron and Brendan; niece, Amy Van Sickel; and nephews, Ty and Treyc. She was predeceased by her brothers, Rollie Fisher and Mark Hennigar and her son, B.J. Iseminger.

A joint visitation will be held for Cindy and her mother Peggy Hennigar from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. Tuesday, July 9, 2024 at Hamilton’s on Westown Parkway, 3601 Westown Parkway in West Des Moines. Funeral services will follow at 11:30 a.m. Wednesday, July 10 also at the funeral home.

Cindy's vibrant spirit and boundless love left an indelible mark on her community and everyone she touched. Her memory will continue to inspire all who knew her to live fully, love deeply, and laugh often. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations to Easter Seals of Iowa, a tribute to her compassionate spirit.

Cynthia Kaye Eamer's legacy of living fully, loving deeply, and laughing often will continue to inspire those who were fortunate enough to know her.
