Cindy was the only child of the Late Pearl Glenn and Clara B. Cox. A lifelong resident of Greensboro and class of '72 graduate of Ben L. Smith Senior High School, she resided on Veasley St. for most of her life.

Her community involvement led her to donate nearly 31 gallons of blood to the Red Cross. She was also a veteran volunteer with the Red Cross. Whether it was helping a t blood drives, driving Emergency Response Vehicles with her partner, or as an instructor for numerous subjects covering CPR and AED's to HIV/AIDS Awareness. Her passion was Disaster Services, where she helped to shelter, feed and clothe those who had to leave their homes after fire, flood or tornado. Cindy's desire to spread the message of Disaster Preparedness moved her to become an instructor at the Annual Boy Scout Merit Badge College Teaching "Disaster Preparedness". She was always so proud of her students achievements, especially when one received Eagle Scout. Simply stated, Cindy loved helping others. Her mantra was "Be Aware, Be Prepared and Be Involved". She was trained by the Department of Homeland Security to be an instructor for several FEMA/CDP Emergency Management Courses. Cindy was proud to be a voting member of the Guilford County LEPC and a member of the Forsythe County CERT. She also joined and trained with the Piedmont Emergency Animal Response Team. Cindy even volunteered as a crash/disaster victim whenever area first responders needed to train, saying that those involved may have to rescue her for real one day and she wanted them well trained. Even during her illness she always encouraged medical students to observe or practice their art with her.

Cindy is survived by her high school sweetheart and husband, Robert L. Kabler (Bobby), one son, Patrick Glenn Kabler, daughter-in-law, Marsha and two grandsons, Patrick Quinn and Tanner Lee Kabler, all of Greensboro.
