Cindy was born Wilma Estelle Honea on March 30, 1943, to R.E. and Lucile Honea. She was the second oldest of eight children. She worked in retail briefly but was happiest when taking care of her family. On August 21, 1959, she married the man of her dreams, Charlie Ochoa. They spent 59 wonderful years together, and of this union four children were born. She loved God, her family, the holidays, shopping, attending Church of the Open Door, staying up-to-date with loved ones, making her world-famous Mississippi Mud Cake, and enjoying a good cup of coffee.
She was preceded in death by her parents; brothers, Tom, James, Donald, and Roger Honea; sisters, Janie Dickson and Wanda Navarro; an infant grandson and an infant granddaughter; and the love of her life, Charlie Ochoa.
She is survived by her brother, Terry "Bud" Honea and wife, Barbara; daughters, Susan Stem and Kay Erwin; sons, Charlie "Chuck" Ochoa, Jr., and Cody Ochoa and wife, Marihelen. Grandchildren include: Bryan and Wiley Stem, Dillon and Logan Erwin, Tyler Ochoa and wife, Jenna, Kelsi Ochoa, Emma and Hannah Ochoa; great grandchildren Wyatt and Layney Ochoa, and Kinlee Ochoa; and a host of nieces and nephews.
