Cynthia (Cindy) Massengale Wisenbaker, 65 of Waller County, Texas, passed away at M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, TX on April 5, 2018.
Cindy was born in Birmingham, Alabama, prematurely, on September 15, 1952, at St. Vincent's Hospital. She was very tiny and stayed in an incubator until she reached a whopping 5 lbs and could go home. Her daddy visited her every day for the month that she was there. As a result, he doted on her, and she adored him. An early photograph of Cindy showed arms and legs caught dancing out of a huge diaper, and her sweet little mouth appeared to be screaming at the world. She went through much of her life this way! She commanded the room and everyone in it, until her last day on earth.
When she was three months old, the family moved to Greensboro. After forming lifelong friendships with many of her classmates, Cindy graduated from Greensboro High School in 1970. She later moved to Cookeville, TN, where she would go on to work for Fleetguard and meet the love of her life, Bill. After moving to Houston TX, they were married in Gruene, Texas, October 26, 1991. They would later settle in Waller, TX. She worked as an Accounts Payable Specialist at Magnolia ISD, Magnolia, Texas, for 15 years, and retired in September of 2015.
Cindy enjoyed cooking and loved being in her kitchen at every opportunity with a new-found recipe. On any given Saturday in the fall, you would find her watching her beloved Auburn Tigers. She was an avid fan.
Cindy is preceded by her parents James Robert and Doris Tomlin Massengale of Greensboro, Alabama; and also, her brother-in-law, Danny A. Milner, Sr. Cindy is survived by her loving husband William (Bill) C. Wisenbaker of 26 years. Cindy is lovingly remembered by her devoted daughter, Candace Leigh Johnson (Chris Alcorn); her supportive step-daughter and son-in-law, Julie and Jeff Blake; her precious grandchildren, Emma, Sam, and Grayson Gornick, Collin and Haley Blake; her sisters, Deb Milner and Kathy Butterworth (Danny) of Alabama; her nieces, Audra Montgomery (Robert), Mary Kathryn McAllister (Sean), of Alabama; her nephew, Dr. Danny Milner, Jr. (Alan Lavender) of Chicago, IL; her great-nephews, Ethan and Parker Montgomery, and Henry McAllister, all of Alabama; her many cousins in Alabama; and her many wonderful friends. All will miss her terribly.
