On December 22, 2021, our sweet Mom, Gramma, sister, and aunt, Cindy Jean Braden, went home to Heaven. She was best known for her “all in brand of love,” and a home where all felt welcomed. Cindy impacted her family and friends with her genuine care and her unceasing willingness to share. She made us laugh with such joy and we will all miss her strong hugs.
Cindy was born on April 30, 1954, in Borger, Texas. She loved her family more than anything. Her favorite color was red, and flower was roses.
Cindy had worked in the home health industry for many years. She was a beloved sister, mother, and grandmother.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Almina and Jim Braden; as well as several aunts and uncles.
Cindy is survived by her daughter, Michael Jean Maturin and her husband Chris; her sister Cecilia Johnson and her husband Bobby, brother Randy Braden and his wife Evelynn, sister, Penny McSpadden and her husband Steve; grandson, Keifer Maturin; four step grandchildren, Brittney, Krystin, C.J., and Chris; and numerous great grandchildren, cousins, nieces, and nephews.
The family will be receiving friends at the Shaffer-Nichols Funeral Home on Wednesday, December 29, 2021, from 6pm until 8pm. Graveside services will be held at 10am on Thursday, December 30, 2021, at the Rankin Cemetery Pavilion with Kevin McSpadden and Tyler McSpadden officiating.
Pallbearers will be Kevin McSpadden, Tyler McSpadden, James Braden, Aaron Braden, Nathan Braden, and Keifer Maturin. Honorary Pallbearers will be Randy Braden and Steve McSpadden.
