My deepest sympathy to the Kirkeide's at this time of their loss. Besides knowing Cindy in high school, we attended nursing school together at Mercy Medical Center. We shared nursing experiences, along with great college memories. I was a bridesmaid in Cindy & Lou's wedding as they started their journey together. Later I reconnected with Cindy at Theda Clark where I would observe her expertise with the neonates. She had such compassion for those tiny individuals. Peace...as you are in my thoughts.
My sympathy to the Kirkeide family. Cindy and I became best friends when my family moved to Appleton and we found we shared the same birthday. I have many great memories of our time growing up. It was always fun to share our birthday parties together. I will truly miss her and hope my dad (whom I lost a year ago) has welcomed her with open arms into a better place.
Karen, I am so sorry for your loss. Your family will be in my thoughts and prayers.

Cindy never stopped being my sister-in-law. She was TRULY a person
who accepted everyone for who they were, refrained from judgment and was immensely compassionate, particularly caring of any "furry kids". A classy lady all around.
In years gone by Lou, Cindy and I, along with others, shared many amazingly fun times. Attending Packer games, Lou & Cindy's annual New Year's Day parties on Oklahoma St. and later on Alcan Dr., or "Fish" club to name a few. The fun with them and their generosity were endless.
Ironically, on a whim, I called Cindy a couple weeks ago to "catch up". I am and will forever be grateful for our conversation and for the opportunity to remind her how important she is to me & the Wierichs family; Cindy was the influence behind my/her nieces Nichole & Heather pursuing successful nursing careers, "just like their Aunt Cindy". We are forever grateful for this.
On behalf of the Harriet & late Louis J. Wierichs Sr. family, our deepest condolences to Roger, Gerri, Karen, Sue, Jane, & John.
Lou - My heart aches for you as Cindy was your one true love and you two have always been "connected". I'm so sorry for your loss.
Cindy - May you now feel peace and serenity; you will continue to be missed. I feel some comfort in knowing that you and my Dad are sharing some laughs in heaven and you are also reunited with your "furry kids" who have previously crossed over the "rainbow bridge".
Love you and thank you for always loving and accepting me for me.
