Obituary for Cynthia I. Barnard

CINDY ("C", "CiCi", "Sis", Sissy") BARNARD, age 70 of Luverne, Minnesota, passed away on Tuesday, July 24, 2018 at the Sanford Luverne Hospital. Cindy was born on February 29, 1948 (yes, she was a leap year baby!) to Burt and Gwen (Palmer) Barnard in Mitchell, South Dakota. She was the eldest of three siblings. During her childhood she moved with her family throughout South Dakota and Minnesota. She graduated in 1966 from Yankton High School in Yankton, South Dakota. She then attended Mount Marty College in Yankton where she received her Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing. Before returning to school for her Masters in Nursing, she worked as a Public Health Nurse in various towns. After receiving her Master’s Degree, she worked as a Nursing Instructor at South Dakota State University in Brookings, South Dakota. While at SDSU, Cindy was continuing her career goal of receiving her Doctorate in Nursing. Cindy was an avid intellectual, and after her career as a professor at SDSU, Cindy worked in healthcare research for a private corporation. Cindy was a passionate nurse who thoroughly enjoyed the interaction she had with her students and patients.

Cindy was actively involved in P.E.O., bridge club, bible study, and book club. Cindy was an avid collector and cherished her time spent with family, friends, and her beloved poodles. Cindy had a big heart. She loved talking with people, traveling, baking, going to movies, and going out with friends and family. Cindy was the family historian. She remembered EVERYTHING, and her mind was a steel trap! Cindy always enjoyed a good laugh.

Cindy is lovingly remembered by her siblings, Tom Barnard of Tulsa, Oklahoma and Deb (Rick) Ward of Luverne, Minnesota; five nieces and nephews, Tiffany (Derek) Maher, Ashley (Preston) McIntyre, Amanda Ward, Allison (David) Roemen, and Tommy Ward; five great nieces and nephews, Skyler, Ava, Bryton, Ace, and Tanner; and cousins, Sue, Kate, Wayne, Nancy, Barb, Joanne, Kathleen, and Pam. She was preceded in death by her parents, Gwen and Burt Barnard; grandparents, May and Edward Palmer, Iola and Thomas Barnard; and several aunts and uncles.
