Cindy Lou Hetchler, 64, passed away at home with her family by her side, on Thursday, November 12, 2015 after a courageous four year battle with cancer.
She was born to Lyle and Lucille (Normand) Woodcock on February 2, 1951 in Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin.
She graduated from Chippewa Falls Senior High in 1969. Cindy married the love of her life, Gordon Vern Hetchler, on September 6, 1969 in Chippewa Falls. Together they lived and raised their children in Bloomer, New Auburn and Tilden, where they finally built their dream home.
Cindy enjoyed spending time on her deck, in her flower garden, and in her kitchen, where she was known for her wonderful homemade cooking. One of her greatest joys was spending time with her grandchildren. She will be forever remembered for her generosity and big heart.
