Jan. 1, 1956 – July 23, 2012
Memorial services for Cynthia Diane Davis Christensen were held July 28 at Atwood Family Chapel in Greybull. Cindy, 56, died July 22 at her home in Belgrade, Mont.
She was born Jan. 1, 1956, in Basin, the daughter of G.W. “Bill” and Shirley Unterzuber Davis. She received her schooling in Basin and graduated from Basin High School in 1974. While living in the Big Horn Basin Cindy worked as a lifeguard, for Wheeler’s Market, Big B, Children’s Cottage in Thermopolis and the Lander Training School.
Cindy married Ronald Christensen May 28, 1977, and they moved to Plentywood, Mont. Cindy had many friends in Plentywood and worked at the Sheridan County Courthouse. The Christensens later moved to the Bozeman/Belgrade area where Cindy worked at many jobs until forced to retire due to ill health.
Despite personal challenges, Cindy was always concerned for others. She believed that there were no strangers, only friends she hadn’t met. She was known by her family and friends for never missing sending a card or making a phone call on special occasions or holidays.
She was not afraid to die; she knew where she was going.
Her father G.W. “Bill” Davis on Feb. 24, 2011; her son Scott on April 8, 1992; her father-in-law and mother-in-law, Chester and Annie Christensen; and her grandparents, preceded her in death.
She is survived by her husband of 35 years, Ron, and son Michael, both of Belgrade; daughter-in-law Kelly of Glendive, Mont.; daughter and son-in-law, Shari and Steve Droll in Minnesota; her mother Shirley Davis of Basin; sister and brother-in-law, Debbie and Ron Robbins of Douglas; brothers and sisters-in-law, Terry and Suzy Davis, Jerry and Pauline Davis and Tom and Sherry Davis, all of Boise, Idaho, and five grandchildren.
