MITCHELL Cynthia Leigh Thompson, 60, passed away Sunday, May 30, 2021, at her home.

Born March 11, 1961, in Sylacauga, Alabama, she was the daughter of James Ivy “Jim” and Marilyn (McCulley) Clifton.  She married Michael Ray Thompson March 10, 1981.

    I met Cindy when she worked at Speedway. We just loved her bubbly personality. I am sure she is greatly missed. I am truly sorry for the families loss!

    You were my first best friend, my first enemy, and the best big sister a girl could ask for. You taught me so much throughout life and I could always count on you to make me laugh. I sincerely believe I will think of you every day for the rest of my life and miss you greatly. I love you.

    My family and Cindy’s family met in Alabama when we were little. Our families kept in touch after we moved to NY. I remember visiting in Virginia and again on NY. The families drifted apart but Mrs. Clifton, Cindy’s mother contacted me and my sisters on Facebook. My parents had passed by then but it was nice to catch up and see everyone now, about 30 years later. Ok loved seeing all of Cindy’s post. Our family has 4 girls and the Clifton’s have 4 girls. I’m so sorry to see Cindy passed, her posts showed she was so full of life. I am so sorry for her family and sisters. I know how hard it is to lose a sister, because we lost a sister too. My thoughts and prayers to all of you. 😞 ❤

    Cindy was one of a kind! She was full of life and always made me feel loved. She had been in my life for maybe 20 yrs now. I saw her and mike at Walmart a couple months ago and I said is it ok to hug you and she said I don't care you want to or not get over here. Lol we talked and talked and talked even tho we all were busy but when we are around her time always sits still. I'm so thankful our lives crossed and all her kids and grandkids to. I see her in all of them. My fav moment was her video its all about that bass. Cindy just being her having fun and enjoying life with no boundrys. I can't wait to see her again in heaven and I hope to keep her family all in my life. We are lifting all her family in our prayers. Sending you all love and hugs. She is in no pain and she is showing all the angels how to dance and living in her perfect camper in heaven ready to move it whenever she feels like it. 🥰

    Aunt Cindy was of no blood relation to me, but she treated me and everyone she met like family. I have never met a more loving spirit than her. She loved every one, flaws and all. Cindy was a true leader to her Girl Scouts. She took them camping and offered them experiences they would not have had without her. This world is a little colder and darker without her here. Rest is peace, Aunt Cindy. It is your time to feel the love you have always selflessly given to others.
