It is with profound sadness that we share that Cynthia “Cindy” Masulis (March) passed away on November 18, 2020 at Carle Foundation Hospital in Urbana, Illinois at the age of 61. Her family was at her side. Though she was taken from us too soon, we take comfort in knowing that she is no longer in pain and has been reunited with a tribe of angels that have welcomed her home.
Graveside services will be on Tuesday, November 24th at 11:00am at Resurrection Cemetery, 818 Wendt Avenue in Danville. IDPH guidelines will be strictly followed regarding gathering limitations, masks and social distancing.
Cindy was born on September 1, 1959 to Dwight and Mary March (Chandler). She later met the love of her life, William (Butch) Masulis as a teenager and they were married for 41 years. Together, they had 2 daughters, Janell Masulis (Eric Sanchez) and Michell Monson (Adam). She also leaves behind 2 granddaugthers, Blaike and Reese Monson.
She is also survived by her siblings Brad (Nikki) March, Doug (Debbie) March, Dwight March III, Stephen March, Raymond March, and Theresa Pilkington; several nieces and nephews; special family members, Brenda Masulis, Ronnie Masulis and Marianne New (they were family by chance, but friends by choice); and long time friends, Patty Vecellio, Donna Powell and Barb Hawkins.
She was preceded in death by her parents, her loving mother and father in law, and her siblings, Gregory March, Richard March and Susan Catherine March.
Cindy lived a full life as an amazing wife, mother, grandmother and homemaker. She treasured her children and husband, but she especially loved her role as Grandma. Her grandchildren gave her new life and she loved Blaike and Reese more than they will ever know. They brought her enormous joy and nothing made her happier than being at their dance recitals, games or school events….except maybe their Friday night slumber parties.
She loved cooking, playing pool (billiards) with friends and family at the house, gardening, and working on her tan during the summer. Cindy had impeccable taste in music and was a “jack of all trades”. There wasn’t anything she wouldn’t attempt to do. Cindy had a special place in her heart for the elderly and children. She always sacrificed her needs for the good of her family and friends. Cindy will be remembered as a selfless, courageous, and loving woman. She always had a smile, even when times were tough. She never complained and loved and lived every moment she was given.
