Cindy Merkle

Cynthia Ann Merkle, 53, of Clearwater, passed away suddenly September 1, 2021. Cindy was born October 7, 1967 in Baltimore, MD to Robert and Ella Merkle. She made her home in Florida in 1993. She loved the beach and sea turtles, which suited her sunny and sweet personality. Cindy was friendly and fun loving with a heart of gold. She didn’t have much, but she was generous with anything she had. Her family meant everything to her, and they will miss her so deeply.

Cindy is survived by her parents; her sister, Janet Lang and her husband, Thomas; uncle Tom and aunt Cherie; nephews, Zack and Josh Winter; and her cousin, John Heinlein and his wife, Jennifer. A visitation will be held at Michels & Lundquist Funeral Home from 1pm to 5pm.

The family requests that masks be worn while visiting with them.  Please respect their wishes.
